Santos Looking For Positive Result 09/07/04
Santos are hopeful of securing valuable points when they travel to Cameroon where they will face Canon Yaounde in the fourth round of the African Confederations Cup on Sunday.

Although many South African clubs have found their forays into Africa a daunting task, Santos coach Boebie Solomons insists it will be a learning experience for The People's Team.

It will be tough, but thats what we want, to gain experience against different and tougher opposition, said Solomons in the Cape Times.

That will make us grow as a team and as a country.

If we play the same opponents in the Castle Premiership week in and week out, we dont advance. Playing in African competitions has given us more confidence and the opportunity to experience unfamiliar conditions.

Solomons admitted that although they will be looking to secure victory in Cameroon, they will still be taking a cautious approach.

We would like to attack, but were going there with a cautious approach and hoping to come back with at least a point, he said.

However, the Cape side have lost several of their top stars ahead of the new season following the departures of Fees Moloi , Jonathan Solomons and David Notoane , while key defensive midfielder Sebastian Bax and first-choice goalkeeper Brendan Wardle are stuggling to overcome injury.
