CAF CC: AshantiGold defender Eric Donkor upbeat ahead of Akonangui showdown

AshantiGold defender Eric Donkor is confident ahead for their CAF Confederation Cup first qualifying round second leg against Akonangui FC.

The match is scheduled to come off at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi on Saturday 24th August, 2019.

The first leg which was played in Equatorial Guinea a fortnight ago ended 1-1.

The Miners just need to avoid defeat or maintain a goalless scoreline on Saturday in order to boot out their opponent.

“It was a good away result for us in the first leg and we are happy about it, though I personally feel we should have won the game looking at our performance,” Donkor told CAFOnline.com.

“We are still preparing for the game with one thing on our minds, and that is to beat Akonangui and qualify to the next stage of the competition.

“We are not out of the woods yet. We still have to qualify and winning on Saturday is the only way.

“The draw in Equatorial Guinea has boosted our morale because even before that game, we knew nothing about them.

“Now we have a fair idea of the side we are dealing with.”

The winners over both legs will secure a place in the second round where a showdown with Moroccan outfit RS Berkane awaits.

“There’s nothing to be complacent about, all we know is that we have to win and make our fans very happy,” Donkor concluded.
