In what will be the top of the table clash on Wednesday, Kumasi Asante Kotoko will lock horns with Berekum Chelsea as they rekindle the emerging rivalry between the two with the latter shading the better of the exchanges in recent times.

Asante Kotoko lost to Berekum Chelsea in the first round with all two goals coming from ex-Asante Kotoko players in the persons of Eric Bekoe and Jordan Opoku. Chelsea who are seeking a double over their rivals will start as favorites in today’s game albeit an away game for the 2010 Ghana Premier League champions.

Kotoko themselves have not been able to replicate their magical form in the Caf Champions League in the domestic top flight causing unrest in the camp of the Porcupine Warriors, especially with some sections of the supporters calling for the head of coach Mas-Ud Dramani.

The coach seems unperturbed about this unfolding event stating that, “I understand the type of job I am in and this is the occupational hazard of our work as coaches - we will make sure we win the match and silence our critics.”

Chelsea of Berekum are cuddled comfortably in second-place on the league table whilst Asante Kotoko are just behind them in fourth on the league log.
