Kotoko Coach Steve Polack is confident his side will go past the preliminary round in the CAF Confederations Cup competition despite recording a narrow victory over CARA Brazzaville in the first leg.
The former Ghana Champions fluffed an opportunity to grab a big win at home when they miss three out of four penalty kicks awarded by Senegalese referee Issah Sy.
Saddick Adams, Amos Frimpong and Baba Mahama all missed their kicks and had to rely on a late kick by Yakubu Mohammed who came off the bench.
Polack who was satisfied with his side’s performance believes they can secure a favorable scoreline in Brazzaville next Wednesday.
“It wasn’t an easy game, you always have yourself to blame if you are unable to capitalize on the chances that come your way,” he said in a post-match interview.
“In as much was a missed chances, we were able to win at that is the most important thing.
“We need to work ahead of the next game in Congo, is going to be difficult, but nothing is impossible.
“We still have a chance to qualify to the next round and we must work towards that.”
Kotoko will need to secure a favorable score line in Congo to advance to the next round.
