Bolga All Stars midfielder Samuel Norgbey is confident his side will hand Asante Kotoko their first defeat in the 2017 Ghana Premier League campaign as they host the Porcupine Warriors at the Tamale Utrecht Park on Sunday.
The debutants come into the game on the back of four defeats after five games, including a 3-1 drubbing at home to Wa All Stars on Wednesday.
Kotoko, on the other hand, boast of four wins and a draw.
“Every player is well motivated when playing against the big clubs in the league. That is one of the numerous reasons why we have been inspired to defeat Asante Kotoko in Tamale on Sunday,” Norgbey told Boss FM.
“We have planned to go into every game one after the other in order to stay focused. The target is now Kotoko this weekend and we are aware that it is going to be a crucial encounter.
“However, we are definitely going to end their unbeaten run and it will be a surprise to many. We need the three points very badly and we are highly motivated. Kotoko players have the media hype but we will make sure they leave Tamale without a point,” he added.
Goal understands that negotiations between Techiman-based business mogul Nana Ameyaw and Bolga's top hierarchy in a possible sale of the club have fallen through following protest from Great Olympics against Bolga over unpaid officiating fees.
If Bolga are found guilty they could lose six points.
