Ashantigold defender Eric Donkor is confident the Miners will qualify to the next stage of the CAF Confederation Cup after a slim first leg win over Berkane.

The Ghana Premier League club managed to beat RS Berkane 3-2 in the first leg tie of the preliminary round at the Len Clay Stadium on Saturday.

Speaking to the media after the game, Donkor who scored his side's first goal insisted the results of the game is not bad and they will do everything possible to qualify in the second leg

“We know most of our fans are not content with the scoreline , but I believe anything is possible in football, and we are capable of winning or getting a draw in Morocco to ensure our qualification”

“The most important thing is for us to be focused in the coming days because we know the task ahead isn’t easy. We have to concentrate and work extra hard”

Donkor also rejected the claim that his side’s second half performance is always questionable.

“No I won’t accept that. We lost concentration after conceding the first goal because our game plan was to keep a clean sheet so their first goal put us off and were caught sleeping”

The second leg will come off on Saturday September 27 At the Stade Municipal de Berkane in Morocco.
