The Porcupine Warriors coach claims they may suffer negative effects following the cancellation of their first game in the inter-club competition

Asante Kotoko coach C.K Akonnor has admitted that he is unhappy despite his side's progressing to the first round of the Caf Confederation Cup without kicking a ball.
 
The Ghanaian giants were handed a walkover victory by Caf last week after Cameroonian FA failed to meet the deadline for submitting their representative.
 
Kotoko were scheduled to face the winner of Cameroon FA Cup final between Eding Sport FC and Lion Blesse de Foutouni.
 
“The walkover is a mixed feeling. In a way, you will say that you need enough time to prepare and the same way you will want to play the match to test the strength of your team. So it’s a mixed feeling," Akonnor told Class FM.
 
"The preliminary round would have just given us enough evidence of our preparations so I may not be happy in a way but we are okay.
 
"We want to be focused and continue with the preparations. We are looking forward to the next opponent,” he added.
 
Kotoko are likely to face Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks after they humiliated ARTA Solar 6-1 in the first leg of the preliminary fixture on Tuesday.
