Stuart Baxter's men eked out a 2-1 victory at home to Rollers in the first leg, and they are determined to finish the job when they visit Botswana's National Stadium.

“We believe that as a team we can get a positive result,” Parker told the club's official website.

“At the last game, when they settled their initial nervousness, they thought they could win it. It gave them confidence.

“However, we are an experienced team and we definitely want to advance to the next round.

“We learnt a lot from last year's Champions League journey. We will be ready come Saturday.”

Having played at the aforementioned ground several years ago, Parker has some idea of what to expect this weekend.

He added: “It's a small stadium, but the people love their soccer in Botswana. That's why I expect a full house.”

Kick-off is at 15:00.
