Kotoko coach C.K Akunor wants improvement despite 3-0 victory over Inter Allies

Akonnor 2 Kotoko are preparing feverishly for their continental campaign

Asante Kotoko coach Charles Kwabla Akunor says he wants his side to improve their possession football style after their 3-0 friendly win over Inter Allies.

Despite a dominant first half performance from the Reds, the confederations cup campaigners struggled to keep the ball in the second half.

Akunor, however, believes there are some positives from the game but would have to improve before they face Kariobangi Sharks in the CAF Confederation Cup.

"The first half was okay, but in the second half, we could not keep the ball too much. And these are areas we want to improve and hopefully in the next match we will improve that," he said.

"We need to keep the ball more because in the game we are going to play, we would have to keep more of the ball to avoid problems."

"There are two halves in a game, in the first half we did well but we could not do that in the second half."

"But what we have seen today is a good sign and we hope to continue in that way," he concluded.

Captain Amos Frimpong opened the scoring from the spot after Inter Allies defender Desmond Abugah handled the ball in the box.

Guinean imports Naby Laye Keita doubled the lead after pouncing on a lose ball following a defensive error from Inter Allies to slot home for the Porcupine Warriors.

Former WAFA captain Martin Antwi completed the thrashing of the Tema based side, a club he once represented, after some intricate passes from the CAF Confederations Cup campaigners.

Kotoko face Kariobangi Sharks in the CAF Confederation Cup in the next stage of the competition.
