Appiah seeks Black Stars reaction

9 years ago

Ghana will be looking for an improved result when they meet Togo following their opening home draw in the start of the group phase of the qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Still nursing a winless run in their last four outings, the Black Stars have arrived in Togo for their their next Group E fixture on Wednesday.

The Black Stars had to come from behind to draw 1-1 with Uganda and earn a point which leaves them two points adrift Guinea on the log

A point from their first game has left Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah seeking a reaction from his players.

"We will have to do better than we did at home,"Appiah said. "It's a tough group and we come up against another tough side, Togo. I would want the team to see this challenge as a fresh start. We have to put behind us the first game and make an impact."

Appiah expects a good result to bring a happier mood for a place at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Morocco in January.

"It's a must win game for us. And we can change things and restore the confidence only by winning against Togo."

Ghana will be without defender, John Boye, who missed Tuesday's trip to Lome after injury his ankle in training the previous day.
