Asante Kotoko coach Zdravko Lugarusic claims his side face another difficult test as they travel to Techiman to face debutants Bolga All Stars in matchday six of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Kotoko are coming into this game with two successive victories over regional rivals Ashanti Gold and Elmina Sharks but their hosts have picked only one win after five games, including a 3-1 defeat to defending champions Wa All Stars in the outstanding game on Wednesday at the Tamale Utretch Park.

However, Bolga have been handed a major boost ahead of the game after business mogul Nana Ameyew obtained majority shares in the club. He has written to Ghana FA to move them from Tamale to his hometown Techiman.

"I have not played against that club before but that is not an excuse. I hadn't play against Bechem United before but I made sure we defeated them in Kumasi," Lugarusic told Goal.

"As at now, we're not aware of the venue because I am told the game can be played in Techiman due to some reasons. Last season, Kotoko drew against Techiman City in Techiman so it makes the game difficult but I believe in my players.

"We have to continue winning if we want to achieve something this season in the league. We're yet to drop points after the draw against Berekum Chelsea and I am confident that we will continue what we've started and make it three wins in succession," he added.

Kotoko are second on the log, tied with leaders Aduana on 13 points, and the two clubs are the only sides without a defeat this season.
