Aduana Stars defender Aidoo confident of his side’s progress in Caf Confederation Cup

The Fire Club centre-back remains upbeat about their quarterfinal chances despite picking just a point from two matches thus far

Aduana Stars defender Paul Aidoo is not letting go their hopes of reaching the Caf Confederation Cup quarterfinals despite their poor start to the group campaign. 

After matchday two, the Ghanaians sit bottom of Group A following a 1-0 away loss to Asec Mimosas of Cote d'Ivoire and a 3-3 home draw with Moroccan outfit Raja Casablanca. 

It is the Fire Boys' debut season in the championship. 

“We lost in Abidjan not because we were outplayed but because our opponents utilized the chance that came their way,” Aidoo told 442gh.

“Our game against Raja Casablanca was not different from Asec’s. 

“At this level and in such big games, the slightest of mistakes and lapses in concentration could change the outcome of a game and that was exactly what happened to us.

“They took their chances and I also believe we have the wherewithal to dig our heels in and start recording victories to enhance our chances of advancing to the next stage.

“It is not beyond our reach. We will surely qualify.”

To stand any chance of qualifying from the group, Aduana cannot afford to give away any point when they host AS Vita Club of Congo DR in their next game in July.
