In the final round of group-stage matches in the Africa Cup of Nations, Ghana lock horns with Comoros in Group C at the Roumde Adjia Stadium on Tuesday.
The Black Stars, who are on the brink of a shock early exit from the tournament, need all three points to keep their qualification chances alive after failing to win their opening two games.
Yeni Malatyaspor forward Benjamin Tetteh is out of contention for Tuesday’s game after receiving his marching orders a few minutes after coming off the bench against Gabon on Friday.
On the injury front, Iddrisu Baba is a major doubt for Ghana after the 25-year-old midfielder came off with a 65th-minute injury in the aforementioned game.
Should the Mallorca man fail to pass a fitness test, Joseph Paintsil should come into the fold for his second starting appearance of the tournament.
Meanwhile, Comoros head into the game with a clean bill of health and no suspension concerns meaning Abdou has a full strength squad at his disposal.
Les Coelecantes are yet to register a goal at the tournament and we expect the French tactician to make a few changes at the attacking end of the pitch.
While Red Star Belgrade man El Fardou Ben should retain his spot as the lone striker, Ibroihim Djoudja and Ahmed Mogni will push for starting roles in attack.
Ghana possible starting lineup:
Wollacott; Rahman, Djiku, Armatey, Yiadom; Baba, Partey; Paintsil, A Ayew, Kudus; and J Ayew.
Comoros possible starting lineup:
Ahamada; Abdallah, M’dahoma, Zahary, Bakari; Youssouf, Mohamed; Djoudja, Mogni, M’Changama; and Ben.
