Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne is confident that they will get a positive result against Ghana on Saturday.

Stars hit camp on Sunday to begin preparations for the qualifier against a much-fancied Ghana but the Frenchman is not scared of the former African champions.

Migne, who will be in charge of his first match at home with the Kenyan side, has expressed satisfaction with the players’ fitness and motivation ahead of the all-important clash.

“We have started off well. I’m happy with the players’ fitness levels and morale.

“We are working on getting ready for the match. Ghana will pose a tough challenge but I have trust in my players and I’m confident they will get a positive result,” Migne said after taking his charges through their paces on Monday.

The first batch of 21 players, led by Masoud Juma reported to camp on Sunday with the rest expected to jet in the course of the week.

Kenya needs maximum points against Ghana, who are top of Group F with three points, same as Sierra Leone to revive their chances of reaching the final to be staged in Cameroon.
