Asante Kotoko traveling squad for the Super Clash without Blay and Nortey
The league champions have announced 20-man squad for the return encounter of the Ghana premier league and the President’s cup against Hearts of Oak.
The players available for selection by head coach Seydou Zerbo at the Accra sports stadium on Sunday (kick-off 15:00 GMT) includes goal poacher Steven Mukwala and the duo of Enoch Morrison who scored a stunning in the last game against Bechem United and workaholic Georges Mfegue.
Other notable names in the squad include former Hearts captain Mohammed Alhassan looking ahead to have a good justification against his ex club, and much improved Nicholas Osei Bonsu expected to continue his terrific performance against the phobians.
As previously expected, key midfielders Rashid Nortey and Justice Blay are both absent from the squad list. Both are ruled out due to injuries sustained against Dreams FC and Accra Lions respectively.
Meanwhile, players like Mubarik Yusif, Dickson Afoakwa, Maxwell Agyemang and Isaac Oppong are sidelined as a results per the reports for the club’s medics.
