Exclusive: The Fire Club's coach is impressed with their performance against the Libyan side after progressing to the next stage of Caf CL

Aduana Stars coach Yussif Abubakar says he is elated with the performance of his players in their 2-0 victory over Libyan club Al Tahady in the second leg of Caf Champions League on Wednesday.

The Ghana Premier League champions needed two second-half goals from Elvis Opoku and Derrick Sassraku to progress to the next round on a 2-1 aggregate.

"I can't actually describe the feeling after the game. In fact, I'm the happiest man around now because our hard work paid off," Abubakar told Goal.

"The first-half was a bit uninspiring but the players adhered to my instructions after the break and we had two important goals to make it to the next stage. I'm happy and will thank the supporters because they were massive," he added.

Aduana will now meet Algerian side ES Setif in the last qualifying round with the winner making it to the group stage and, Abubakar believes they can make it for the first time.

"This is the first time we've progressed to the next stage in this tournament so obviously, we can make another progress. We are with high hopes that we will make it to the group stages so we won't over celebrate this victory," he said.
