Aduana Stars will be departing to DR Congo on Friday to play AS Vita Club


A 22-man Aduana Stars contingent will depart Accra to DR Congo tomorrow to engage AS Vita Club in their CAF Confederation Cup second leg encounter on Sunday.

The team, made up of 15 players, five technical staff and two officials, included skipper Yahaya Mohammed, Joseph Addo, Tijani Ahmed, Caleb Amankwah, Farouk Adams, Paul Aidoo, Emmanuel Akuoko, Abdul Rashid, Emmanuel Boateng, Sam Adams, Zakaria Mumuni, Fataw Abdulrahman, Noah Martey and Bright Adjei.

Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi of Aduana Stars has warned his side against complacency and entreated them to expect a very difficult game.

The Japanese trainer, however, believes his charges have what it takes to march their opponents who will be keen on throwing everything into winning the game.

In a tweet last Tuesday, the former Hearts of Oak trainer said: "second leg against AS Vita Club will be more difficult than the first leg.

All our efforts have to be picked up few notches to bring a win back from Congo".

With the team's focus on progressing to the semi-finals, the Dormaa-based club will need a positive result in Congo, with just one home game left to play in the group stage as against two away matches.

Aduana are currently second in Group A above Vita Club despite being on four points each, with Raja Casablanca leading the log with five points. ASEC Mimosas are bottom with three points in three matches.
