Ghanaian side Ashgold SC is set to miss the services of three players ahead of their weekend’s showdown in Morocco against RS Berkane in the CAF Confederation cup.
The Len Clay based side threw away 3-0 lead in the first leg in the goal flooded game that eventually 3-2 but will now have to avoid any monumental collapse in the absence of David Abagna, Amos Kofi Nkrumah and Sali Outtara.
Ricardo Roca and his ambitious Elephants will need to up their game in Morocco in order to book a place in the money zone of the continental showdown after letting in two avoidable goals in the first leg.
Abagna starred for Wa All Stars FC at the Wa Malik Jabir Park capped with individual glories at SWAG and Ghana Football Awards nights but is yet to command a starting berth at the Len Clay.
Ashgold SC last reached a continental final in 1997 but have dropped the pecking order in the last 22 years.
A triumphant campaign in the NC Special Competition Tier 2 booked the Miners a return ticket to African football.
