Kariobangi Sharks FC have scuttled allegations of meting out poor treatment to Asante Kotoko ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup.
The Ghanaian side went public to complain about the team bus assigned to them and also a sub-standard training pitch.
But the Kenyan side claim Kotoko caused their own mishap by refusing to disclose their travel plans with them.
Kariobangi Sharks FC have advised Kotoko to focus 'on football and not sideshows.'
A statement read: ''It is disturbing to note that our opponents have resorted to creating a false illusion of mistreatment. We would like to clarify that we have done our best as per CAF regulations and we shall continue to do so.
''Furthermore, it is important that the public knows that our opponents refused to share their schedule and travel plans with us and on arrival they started making unrealistic demands that fall outside the CAF regulations.
''Such is not good practice in this era of modern soccer
''Our opponents should stop hiding behind such rumours in order to justify any unethical practices they may be planning when we visit them in Kumasi, for the second leg.
''Finally, if indeed they feel we have committed any unethical practice then they should go ahead a make a formal complaint at CAF. Let us all focus on football and not sideshows.''
The two sides clash at the Kasarani on Saturday in the first leg with the return leg scheduled for 22 December at the Baba Yara Stadium.
