Striker Saddick Adams is confident about the chances of Asante Kotoko of progressing to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup competition when they face off with CARA club in Congo.

The Porcupine Warriors took a slim 1-0 first leg advantage despite shockingly missing three penalties when the two clubs clashed in Kumasi on Sunday.

Despite squandering countless opportunities of taking a healthy lead into the second leg in Congo, Sadick Adams believes the club is still positioned well in the tie.

"It is one of those things in football. You don't always get what you wish for but I'm glad we won. Though by a slim margin but our confidence ahead of the second leg will be buoyed by this victory. We are down but are not out." The Congolese are good side and but we have what it takes to eliminate them.We will surely qualify should we replicate same performance," he told Light FM.

The striker was thankful to their teeming fans who turned up in their numbers to cheer them on." We are thankful to the fans for such a rousing support. I've not seen them this way in recent times. It's rather unfortunate we couldn't win massively but we still have a game to make amends."

The Porcupine Warriors will travel away to Congo Brazzaville in a fortnight for the reverse fixture.
