CAF Confed Cup: Maxwell Konadu cautions Kotoko ahead of Kariobangi Sharks match

Deputy coach of the Black Stars Maxwell Konadu has advised Asante Kotoko to be wary of the attacking prowess of Kariobangi Sharks ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup second leg clash on Saturday.

The Ghana Premier League giants will aim to book their place in the next round of the competition after playing a goalless draw with the Kenyan side in the first leg last weekend.

Coach Konadu, who led the Porcupine Warriors to clinch the 2011/12 season Ghana Premier League title, believes although his former side hold an advantage ahead of the match, it would be a tall order should they concede a goal hence they have to guard against deploying an open tactic.

"The draw is very good but it has thrown the match into 50/50 which is dicey."

"All they are coming to do is to try to score a goal, I have monitored them and that's their aim to get a goal and not to defend but how Kotoko is going to win and at the same time defend very well, that is the challenge right now, to do it and do it well," Konadu said on Oyerepa FM.

"They will sit back after getting one goal and should Kotoko equalise, that will be one all. Kotoko should be very careful, they should open up and win convincingly."

The match will kick off at 3:30pm at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
