Published on: 04 December 2018

Asante Kotoko is set to play Inter Allies on Wednesday and Ghana U-23 side on Sunday as part of preparations ahead of their first game in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Ghana's sole representative in Africa will face the winner between Kariobangi Sharks of Kenya and Alter Solar of Djibouti, though the former heads into the second-leg encounter with a huge advantage after beating the latter 6-1 in the first leg.

The Porcupine Warriors have so far been camping in Accra since last Saturday and are training at the Zeytuna Park at Kasoa as they look to intensify their preparations.

The club revealed the programme of the team ahead of their much-anticipated campaign in Africa.

“The team will play Inter Allies in a friendly at the Accra Sports Stadium at 3:30 PM on Wednesday, and drive straight to Aburi in the Eastern Region, after the match, for another training camp,” Director of Communications, Samuel Sarfo Duku (Esq), confirmed to on Monday.

“Asante Kotoko will also play the Black Meteors on Sunday, December 9, 2018, and return to Aburi to continue with their preparations until they fly to either Kenya or Djibouti on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, for the first leg match.”

“The first leg game in either Kenya or Djibouti has been slated for either 15th or 16th December, and the team will leave Accra on December 12, this year and return after the game on Sunday,” he further stressed.

Inter Allies FC spelt misery for Hearts of Oak with a 2-1 victory during the 107th Hearts anniversary game at the Tema Sports Stadium in their last time out.
