Kano Pillars have arrived in Ghana ahead of their Total CAF Champions League preliminary round tie against Asante Kotoko this weekend.

The team is expected in Kumasi around 2pm today to continue preparations for the crucial encounter.

A fortnight ago, Masu Gida secured a hard-fought 3-2 home win at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

Nevertheless the Nigerian side would have to be at their best against the battle-hardened Porcupine Warriors at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

The aggregate winner between Kano Pillars and Asante Kotoko would face either Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia or Hafia of Guinea in the next round.
