Ghana will be coming up against Sierra Leone in their opening preliminary qualifier for the 2015 African Youth Championships on Saturday.

The Black Satellites will be making a belated opening towards qualifying for Senegal 2015 after drawing a bye in the first preliminary round.

Coach Sellas Tetteh, who led the side to a second place finish at the last edition of the tournament staged in Algeria is already in BO – 230 kilometres off the capital Freetown- with his 18-man squad for the game.

The Black Satellites must however be wary the devastating attacking threat of their hosts who progressed from the first qualifying round at the expense of Guinea.

Ghana will be looking to secure a favorable result in the first leg encounter to guarantee some extent of ease in the return leg match.

Starting line up:

Muntawakilu Seidu, Owusu Bempa, Patrick Asmah, Joseph Adjei, Joseph Aidoo, Kennedy Boateng, Thomas Agyapong, Devine Narh, Samuel Afful, Dennis Tetteh, Prosper Kassim.

Kickoff: 16:30 GMT
