Eighteen players and twelve officials of Ashgold will enplane in the early hours of Wednesday morning to Sousse as guest to encounter Etoile du Sahel in the one sixteenth Confederation Cup qualifiers on Sunday.

The miners progressed to this stage of the competition after beating Sewe Sport of Ivory Coast on a two nil aggregate.

Ashgold remain the only Ghanaian side in a CAF competition this season.

But Chief Executive Officer Kudjo Fianoo tells Joy Sports his boys are well conditioned for a surprise despite being tagged under dogs.

He said his side was aware of the pedigree of Etoile du Sahel, but insisted they had prepared well enough for the game.

Black stars defender Harrison Afful who plied his trade with rivals Esperance has cautioned Ashgold to be wary of the attacking machinery of the Etoile du Sahel.

CAF has appointed Mauritanian referee Ali Lemghaifry to officiate in the first leg of the competition.
