"We are not afraid of them [CARA] in the second league. We have prepared very well ahead of the game and we'll need our fans support and prayers to qualify," Annan told Angel FM

"I don't believe in Juju. The referee had all the penalties, he awarded in first league at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium right.

"As I earlier said, the fans should continue praying for us to make it to next round of the competition."

The second leg encounter will be played in Congo on Wednesday, with the winner on aggregate scoreline progressing to the second round.
