Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne says his team is ready to put up a fight against Ghana on Saturday.

Kenya lost the opener against Sierra Leone 2-1 and to get their campaign back on track, they have to get positive result against the Black Stars. The Frenchman has expressed his disappointment following injuries to key players but says those available will do the job.

“It has been long since Kenya registered a good result, and that is a motivation for us to do better against Ghana. This is not going to be an easy match but we want to ensure we press well, give good passes and capitalize on our chances. We want to play a good game.

“It is not easy to play without your best players like Macdonald Mariga, Victor Wanyama, Ayub Timbe, Jesse Were and others, who are injured, but those available will do a good job,” Migne told Goal in an interview.

Goal understands Were and David Owino are the latest players to join the treatment table and will not play any part on Saturday. His Ghanaian counterpart Kwesi Appiah says the Black Stars will give their hosts Kenya a very good game.

“In football there is nothing like minnows, coming up with that mentality is like preparing to lose. We are here to give Kenya a good game and go for maximum points. They will be playing at home, and that means they have an advantage because the fans will be behind them.”

Ghana started her campaign on a high note, after defeating Ethiopia 5-0. A brace from Raphael Dwamena and goals apiece from Gyan, Ebenezer Ofori and Boye were enough to hand Walya Antelopes a lesson.

The Black Stars will be aiming at getting maximum points against their hosts Kenya, who went down 2-1 away to Sierra Leone in their opener.
