And CK Akonnor has provided the latest team update news on Zabo ahead of the game on Wednesday.
However, he said Zabo is set to miss the game again against Zesco United but he will have a chance in subsequent games.
"I don't think our new foreign striker, Teguy Dany Zabo will get a chance to play on Wednesday. For now, he needs to understand our style of play and everything before-CK Akonnor", he told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.
