Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has warned Asante Kotoko not to write off Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks in Saturday's CAF Confederation Cup first qualifying round return leg.
The Porcupine Warriors earned a 0-0 draw last week in the first leg at the Kasarani Stadium.
“I believe that even though Kotoko drew, it is not going to be easy. The most important thing is not looking at the goalless draw they got,'' Appiah said.
“They need to take the game like they are down by two goals or three goals and right from the blow of the whistle, the intention out there should be to try and get some goals in.”
Kariobangi Sharks are making their continental debut and eliminated Djiboutian side Arta Sola 9-1 on aggregate.
Appiah added: “In modern football, you can't underrate any team and a team that has played a goalless draw with you, that means they are equally good.
“So the most important thing is that the supporters should come there in their numbers to be behind the team.
“I believe the Kotoko spirit will enter all the players to give out their best and I believe they come out with a win.”
