Aduana will defeat Asec Mimosas without me - Yahaya Mohammed

Suspended Aduana Stars captain Yahaya Mohammed believes his side would be able to overcome Ivorian club Asec Mimosas in the penultimate matchday of Caf Confederation Cup group stage.

The 28-year-old will be missing in action due to accumulated yellow cards.

Aduana are now left with Bright Adjei as the only striker, with Derrick Sasraku facing an internal suspension while Nathaniel Asamoah's contract has expired.

"My absence won't affect Aduana Stars in the game against Asec Mimosas because we have a solid team," Yahaya told Hello FM.

"We have what it takes to defeat Asec and at all cost they will not leave Dormaa Ahenkro with even a point. The supporters are aware of the task ahead so they will fill the stadium to intimidate the visitors with their extraordinary chants," he said.

"After this game, we will do our best to pick a win against Raja Casablanca in Morocco in order to qualify to the knockout stage. Raja were able to draw with us in the first leg, so it is possible we can also upset them, so we're aiming at six points from the remaining two games," he added.

Aduana are currently sitting third in the group with four points, three points behind leaders Raja.
