Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan is confident that they can overcome Coton Sport FC de Garoua in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup play-off round.
Ghanaian giants Kotoko were handed the Cameroonian champions Coton, who dropped from the CAF Champions League.
“We are aiming very high in the competition," Annan told the club's official website.
“We know that the competition will get tougher as we progress. We don’t expect the second qualifying round games to be of the same quality as the playoffs.
Kotoko, who have won the CAF Champions League twice, will face 2008 runners-up Coton next month.
“We will prepare very well for Coton Sport because we knew already that the teams from the Champions League have high pedigrees than the one we met earlier," he added.
"We knew from the very day we eliminated Kariobangi Sharks that we needed to keep improving so to overcome our opponent in the playoff.
"We are very much aware of where we are and what we need to do to survive the round.”
The winner on aggregate between Kotoko and Coton will advance to the group stage of the continental tournament.
