MATCH PREVIEW : Asante Kotoko have the chance to clinch the top with a win against Olympics on Sunday.
The closest for Asante Kotoko to cruise on top of the league log for the first time this season is just a win against Great Olympics on Sunday. Frontrunners, Aduana Stars will be in a pitched battle against Bibiani Gold stars, commanding the third position at the Duns park – where the miners have just lost a game in their last ten matches.
Asante Kotoko, the next best on the table have the brightest chance to outstrip for the first position on Sunday against Olympics as the clash at the Duns park on Monday between Gold Stars and Aduana is certainly a tough battle for the league leaders to maintain the top. Kotoko trails Aduana by two points and a win on Sunday will put the reds above for the first time this season.
It’s a game Kotoko will be forced for an unusual and unfavorable line up due to injuries and suspensions to many of the key men against a struggled away side who have lost thrice with two draws in the last five games on the road. Probably, the return of Sheriff Mohammed, with his versatility and Clinton Opoku after long Injury setbacks will fill some gaps. Olympics only had their first choice shot stopper, Stephen Kweku been lately invited to the Black Galaxies camp for the CHAN and that could be the notable absence in their team.
However, Kotoko have the favourable records at Baba Yara against the tenth place club and any forceful effort from the fabulous lads would grant them victory as a boost to quest for the top. Olympics are not promising on the road with an inconsistent performance and it should be to the advantage of Coach Seydou Zerbo to carry on his good record with Asante Kotoko at home.
