Aduana's Yahaya confident of Confederation Cup quarterfinal progress

The attacker is optimistic about the Fire Boys' chances of making the last eight of the continental inter-club competition

Aduana Stars striker Yahaya Mohammed believes Wednesday's win over Congolese side AS Vita Club in the Caf Confederation Cup group stage will spur the Fire Boys on to make the next round of the competition. 

Bottom of the table ahead of the midweek fixture, the Ghanaian champions now find themselves second on the log following a 2-1 triumph in Dormaa. 

Yahaya was among the scorers on the day, fetching the second after Bright Adjei had broken the deadlock. 

"It was a good game and for me this can push us to do more in the next game," the 30-year-old said, as reported by Ghana Crusader.

"The win means we can still qualify.

"For us, we are going to do everything we can to book qualification to the next stage of the competition.

"It has not been easy but we are still learning.

"And [considering] where we have gotten to, we will try and make things happen."

Aduana opened their group campaign on a disappointing note following a 1-0 reversal at Ivorian club Asec Mimosas. 

The Fire Boys suffered another setback on matchday two when they failed to claim all three points in the welcome of Moroccan side Raja Casablanca. The match ended 3-3.

After Wednesday's game, Kenichi Yatsuhashi's team will return to action on July 29 when they travel to Congo for the second leg of the Vita tie. 

On their debut appearance in the Caf Confederation Cup group stage, a quarter-final berth will be a huge achievement for the Ghanaians.
