Kotoko right-back Augustine Sefa believes his side can still progress out of the group despite their opening day defeat to Al Hilal in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Sefa was in action when Kotoko lost 1-0 to the Sudanese Club last Sunday in Oumduman.
The Porcupine Warriors tasted their first defeat in the competition having won their last away match at Coton Sport, a game which aided them in their qualification to the Group stage.
Kotoko must overcome their defeat to Hilal and defeat Zambian side ZESCO United in the next game at the Babayara Sports Stadium.
And Augustine Sefa remains positive of a good outcome.
“We did not have the best of results but there are five more games to play so we will qualify,” Sefah told Oyerepa FM.
“It is one of the lessons that we have learned in the competition. You need to take your chances and defend very well especially in away games.
“We have a game at home against Zesco United which we will definitely have to win. We need to record 100 per cent at home and try to win one away game to help us progress from the group. I am assuring the supporters that we will definitely do everything to qualify, ” he added.
Coach CK Akunnor and his charges have already arrived in Ghana preparing for their next game.
