Kumasi Asante Kotoko received a lot of flak from their fans after drawing in their opening match at home to new boys, Amidaus Professionals. The Porcupine Warriors know a win will be a great result as they seek to retain the league title.

But the battle will be really tough after a few high profile signings made by Ashgold for this season.

The Miners have consistently been floating in the top four in the last three seasons and are hopeful of going a few steps further to clinch the title for the first time since 1996.

Their top scorer last season, Yakubu Mohammed and new signing, Louis Agyemang were both on target last week in the 2-2 draw at RTU.
