Listen to article

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac claims his side will click into gear at the Africa Cup Nations despite having to deal with injuries in the build-up to the tournament. 

Rajevac supervised his side's goalless draw with Malawi on Tuesday and believes his side possess the firepower to go far in the tournament.

"It was important now to check now the strength and fitness of the level of the players at this moment and I must say they are tactically good," Rajevac said.

"In our last match they were tired and could have won the match. I am expecting a lot from the players in Angola and they know exactly what to do." 

He had the opportunity to tinker with his squad during their ten day stay in Nelspruit, South Africa. 

The Serbian is likely to miss Michael Essien in Monday's Group B opener against Togo in Cabinda. 

There are doubts surrounding the availability of Anthony Annan and Hans Adu Sarpei who all have groin worries.

The Nations Cup in Angola will be Milovan Rajevac's second major tournament as Ghana coach after leading the local Black Stars squad to win silver at the maiden CHAN tournament in Ivory Coast.
