Ghana will continue with their push for top place in their group as the qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations returns this weekend.

The Black Stars are in Morocco for the first of their double-header group E fixtures against Guinea on Saturday, 11 October.

After a frustrating opening draw with group leaders, Uganda, the Black Stars entered the second match against Togo and managed an important win in Lome.
