Kumasi Asante Kotoko two weeks ago took Algeria by storm when they secured a vital away point against JSM Bejaia making it the first time in 23 years a Ghanaian side has secured a point in the North African country.
Poley thinks the Asante Kotoko lads should not be complacent about the result acquired from Algeria because the North Africans are found of surprises when it comes to competitions like this.
“They should not think because of the away result they can easily walk over them because the north Africans do not give credence to either playing away or home, they can win anywhere,” he told Sunyani-based Moonlite FM.
“Guarding against goal should be their utmost priority.”
He was quick to add that in an effort to psyche the players up ahead of the game, he will join hands with other former players to visit the team in camp to show their support.
“By the end of the week, we the old players will pay the team a visit and share with them some words of encouragement,” he revealed.
The winner of the return leg will lock horns with either Esperance or Premier de Agosto depending on the outcome of their game.
