Asante Kotoko have touched down in Lusaka for the CAF Confederation Cup match against Zesco United of Zambia on Sunday.

The Reds touched down on Thursday afternoon and are already in Ndola, where the game will be played.

Kotoko needs a win against their Zesco United to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition.

Coach Kwabla Akonnor named a strong 18-man squad for the trip but will be missing the services of deadly attacker Sogne Yacouba, who is serving a match ban due to accumulation of yellow cards.

In his absence, the team travelled with new signing Dany Zabo Teguy.

Asante Kotoko defeated Zesco United 2-1 in matchday 2 of the competition in Kumasi three weeks ago.
