AshantiGold captain, Daniel Asamoah says they are ready to face league holders, Kumasi Asante Kotoko in the derby this Sunday.
The week two fixture will be hosted by Ashgold at the Len Clay stadium in Obuasi.
Both sides started their campaign with draws, the Miners drawing 2-2 at Real Tamale United while Kotoko were held 0-0 by new boys, Amidaus Professionals at home.
Apart from the rivalry between the two Ashanti Regional based teams, some quality displays will be expected since Ashgold finished second behind the Porcupine Warriors last season.
