The Miners are putting in place adequate preparations scheme to make their dream of getting to at least the finals of Africa’s biggest football club competition a reality.

“We need to make sure that we quickly put our house in order so that we can have enough playing time,’ Fianoo told Joy Sports.

“We are looking for a tournament in Tanzania and hopefully another tournament in Nigeria that is going to feature champions in the sub region.”

“They could play more matches that wouldn’t make us overwhelming underdogs. I have believe and faith in my team that we can stand the test of time.”

Ashanti Gold reached the finals of the competition in 1997/1998 losing to Raja Casablanca on penalties.
