Asante Kotoko head trainer Kjetil Zachariassen has promised to scale over the Kano Pillars hurdle in their return leg fixture at the Baba Yara Stadium next week.
Kotoko bowed 3-2 to the Nigerian side after taking a 2-1 second-half lead in their CAF Champions League opening game four days ago.
And the Norwegian tactician believes having identified what accounted for their defeat in the first leg, his side is bent on progressing to the next stage.
As a result, he has praised his side despite the 2-3 to Kano Pillars, saying, “I am highly elated with my team’s performance because one thing here is that we played against a good team and we scored two important away goals which will be very important for us.” He added, “I must also commend my players for sticking to my game plan which worked very well. We will correct our mistakes before the return leg in Kumasi.”
On August 25, Kotoko will host Kano Pillars in Kumasi for the second leg fixture.
