Defender Eric Donkor added: ''We are used to the practice of traveling up and down for matches. It will be normal for us. What’s important is that, we draw the needed lessons from the July 12 incident and take necessary precautions. There’s nothing to fear. I'm sure we are going to have a great game and a good result.''
