Black Stars assistant coach, Maxwell Konadu has urged Asante Kotoko to tread cautiously ahead of Saturday’s Caf Confederation Cup clash with Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks.
The two teams are set to face off in the return leg of the first round fixture at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, a week after they settled for a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Nairobi.
And CK Akunnor’s side who are eager to beat the Kenyan side convincingly to progress to the next round of the competition has been urged to be wary of the threat Sharks poses.
“The draw is very good but it has thrown the match into a 50-50 [affair] which is dicey,” Konadu told Oyerepa FM.
“All they are coming to do is to try to score an [away] goal.
“I have monitored them and that’s their aim – to get a goal – and not to defend.
“But how is Kotoko going to win and at the same time defend very well? That is the challenge right now – to do it and do it well.
“They [Sharks] will sit back after getting one goal and should Kotoko equalise that will be one all.
“Kotoko should be very careful. They should open up and win convincingly.”
The winner of the tie over two legs secures a place in the playoff round.
