Asante Kotoko and ZESCO United will be missing the services of their new acquisitions when the two clubs meet in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday.

Charles Akunnor's side recently announced signing Ivorian striker Dany Zabo Teguy on a three-year deal from Swazi Premier League side Manzini Wanderers, subsequent to registering him for the African campaign.

The Porcupine Warriors, however, have to do without him as according to the club's gaffer, the forward will need more time to adjust to Ghanaian football and the Porcupines' philosophy.

All other players are available for the matchday two fixture at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

Following an opening day 1-0 loss to Al Hilal Omdurman of Sudan, the Porcupines currently sit third on Group C's table.

ZESCO, on their part, beat country rivals Nkana FC on matchday one, sending them top of the pile.

The Zambian giants, like Kotoko, will be without veteran Japanese acquisition Kosuke Nakamachi.

The defensive midfielder joined the Zambians on a two-year deal on Friday, and it appears Wednesday's match may be coming too soon for him.

An 18-man Zesco squad has already arrived in Ghana ahead of the big encounter.

In a related development, the game has been moved from 13:00 GMT to 16:00 GMT by Caf on request of Kotoko.
