Despite Asante Kotoko’s comfortable lead in the ongoing Ghana Premier League, they will be out to seek revenge against arch-rivals Hearts of Oak in their cagey 24th week top liner at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
After suffering a painful 1-2 defeat to their bitterest rivals Hearts in the recent President’s Cup match at the Accra Stadium in the presence of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last month, the Porcupine Warriors will have a fine chance to settle scores on home soil.
This was after the two giants had played out a scoreless draw in their first round league encounter at the same venue. That is why Coach Prosper Narteh Ogum’s charges will strive to maintain the momentum after seeking revenge against their noisy neighbours, King Faisal, in their thrilling derby in Kumasi last Sunday.
The impressive pace set by Kotoko in the first round has set them apart from the rest and also brought back the smiles to the faces of their loyal fans who are already dreaming of another league title at the end of the season.
On Thursday, Berekum Chelsea will also trek to the Baba Yara Stadium to challenge tottering King Faisal, while Karela United play as guests of Accra Lions at the Accra Stadium on Saturday.
Then on Sunday, Great Olympics will clash with Aduana Stars at the Accra Stadium; Bechem United engage Bibiani Goldstars at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park, while Medeama SC play host to RTU at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa.
At the Nduom Stadium at Elmina, Elmina Sharks will host King Faisal, while AshantiGold engage visiting West African Football Academy (WAFA) at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
The Theatre of Dreams at Dawu will host Dreams FC versus Eleven Wonders in another interesting duel, with Berekum Chelsea welcoming Legon Cities to the Golden City Park.
