Assistant coach of AshantiGold, Yussif Sheriff Mambo has revealed the tactics employed by his side in their 3-0 win over Akonangui FC in the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round on Saturday.

Shafiu Mumuni scored a hattrick at the Len Clay Stadium to ensure the Miners progressed 4-1 on aggregate.

”It was a very tough match. We realized they had very good midfielders from the first leg so we packed our midfield as well and we were fortunate to get a draw. However, we switched to 4-3-3 system at home and a 3-0 result is what came out of it” Yussif told reporters after the match.

AshantiGold will face 2019 CAF Confederation Cup runners up RS Berkane in the next qualifying round.
