Exclusive: The Porcupine Warriors winger believes they could make a statement in Sudan on Sunday

Asante Kotoko midfielder Emmanuel Gyamfi has called on his teammates to stick to their game plan against Al Hilal Omdurman in the Caf Confederation Cup on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors, who knocked out Kariobangi Sharks and Coton Sport to reach the group stage, face an uphill battle against the Sudanese side who are in excellent form in the domestic league. 

"It is obviously going to be a tough game for us. We have watched some of their games and the atmosphere in the stadium is always charged," Gyamfi told Goal.

"But I believe we can enjoy the game and frustrate them if we stick to the game plan we will be using. We need to play as a team or unit and avoid mistakes, especially in midfield and defence. They are without doubt a good side but we are prepared to shock them.

"This game would be crucial to our dream of qualifying from the group stage because it could urge us on and also put fear in the other opponents of the group. A good outcome would help us win the remaining games and make our supporters proud," he added.

Only three players in Kotoko's current squad, namely Daniel Nii Adjei, Jordan Opoku and goalkeeper Muntari Tagoe, have played in the group stage of the competition.

The Kumasi-based side are yet to record an away defeat in the campaign so far.
