Asante Kotoko skipper, Amos Frimpong says he is optimistic his side can progress to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup despite the setback in Kitwe.
The home side recorded a convincing 3:1 win over the Ghana Premier League side in the first leg.
Ahead of the reverse encounter at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the experienced defender is confident of his side’s chances against the Red Devils.
“It was a nice journey, but we didn’t get what we were expecting from the game so we will work hard to win the game on Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium”, the 28-year old told ASHH FM.
“It was a painful defeat in Zambia because we went into the game with a winning mentality or at least to get a draw, but things didn’t work for the entire team on the field.”
“My spirit would be with the team on the field though I’m suspended for the return encounter and I know victory will be ours on Sunday.”
“The management of the team have really done well and so we will do all that we can to qualify to the next stage of the competition to make them(Management) and the supporters proud,” Frimpong concluded.
Frimpong will miss the match due to accumulated yellow cards.
