Some concerns have been raised over the readiness of the match venue for the Ghana’s 2013 AFCON qualifier against Malawi.
The Black Stars will battle the Flames at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.
The game was originally fixed to take place in Blantyre but had to be shifted to Lilongwe over safety concerns.
But the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe has been undergoing some upgrading ahead of the game on Saturday.
The proximity of undergoing works to the actual kickoff appears to have stirred some discomfort in the Ghana camp.
“I have never been to Malawi, this will be my first visit so any information I have is second hand information,” Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi said.
“I am aware that the stadium in Blantyre for instance has an artificial turf but because of safety concerns the match had to be shifted from Blantyre to Lilongwe.
“But the Lilongwe Stadium also has some work to be done on it but because of this game they had to put the playing pitch to good shape and other parts of the stadium.
“I’m told that work is underway, by now the grass is still being tendered to grow to the level we expect for a competitive game.
“We also know that there is a training pitch being prepared for us but we are not aware of its readiness that is why we will be leaving on Friday so at worst we train at the match venue.”
Ghana carries a 2-0 advantage into Saturday’s game which will determine which of the two makes it to the finals to be hosted by South Africa early next year.
