Head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Charles K Akonnor says his side is poised to record a resounding victory over Sudanese side Al Hilal in their penultimate Group C match on Sunday to boost their chances of qualifying to the next stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, the former Ashantigold trainer touched on the importance of the remaining games and why his team must record a good result to progress.

“We have two games to go and it is important that we win them. From what we have seen from Hilal, it is obvious that they are solid at the back and it is a difficult task playing against such teams but we are looking forward to get a good result,” he said.

Kotoko are placed second on the table with six points, a point behind Al Hilal. Nkana follow with six points while ZESCO United are trailing with four points.

A win will take Asante Kotoko to the summit of the table and give them a good chance of progressing to the quarter finals of the competition.

Nkana FC will face ZESCO United in the other Group C match.
