Black Stars will miss the services of defender Andy Yiadom when they take on Kenya in the final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Accra on March 23. 

The Reading player was expected to start at right back as the two nations fight for the top position in Group F, however, that will not be the case.

Yiadom sustained an injury while turning out for Reading against Stoke City in the English championship over the weekend. 

Following that unfortunate incident, coach Kwesi Appiah has called to the squad Royal Antwerp defender Daniel Opare for the clash.

The Black Stars are expected to start training for the match on Tuesday evening at the Accra Sports Stadium.
