Speaking to 442gh, the trainer is confident his side will sail through to the group stage of the competition but admitted the task will not be "easy".
"I'm optimistic we can make it. But that will come with a lot of responsibilities. We need to work hard to get that. It will not be easy. C.K Akonnor told 442gh in an interview.
"Our target is to make it to the group stage of the competition but it will come with a lot of effort. We identified some areas we need to improve after our game with Kariobangi Sharks and we are working on it."
