Head coach of Asante Kotoko SC Maxwell Kwabena Konadu has named his starting XI who will face Berekum Chelsea this afternoon at the Golden City Park.
The Porcupines shared the spoils in our opening fixture against Eleven Wonders in a home-away-from-home game at the Accra Sports Stadium and would want to record a win to boost their confidence ahead of the CAF Champions League campaign which kick-start next weekend in Mauritania.
With the likes of Latif Anabila and Augustine Okrah out of the game due to injuries, the former Black Stars coach has handed Muniru Sulley his debut start for the club, replacing injured Latif Anabila with Osman Ibrahim replacing Augustine Okrah.
In goal post, Felix Annan has been given the nod over Kwame Baah.
Christopher Nettey after returning from the national assignment take over the right-full back position ahead of Samuel Frimpong who started the first game while Ibrahim Imoro continues to shake off threats from Patrick Asmah who is still warming himself into the team’s setup.
In the heart of defence, it remains unchanged with Abdul Ganiu pairing Yusif Mubarik who had an excellent debut last weekend.
In midfield, Muniru Sulleywill partner Emmanuel Keyekeh in the offensive role with Kwame Adom Frimpong who looked back to his best in recent games sitting behind them in the defensive midfield role.
On the flanks, Osman Ibrahim slots in to replace injured Augustine Okrah on the left side of attack and Emmanuel Gyamfi on the right side with Kwame Poku who got the Reds’ opening goal leading the lines again in a 4:3:3 formation.
The squad in full:
Felix Annan (C), Christopher Nettey, Ibrahim Imoro, Abdul Ganiu, Mubarik Yussif, Emmanuel Keyekeh, Adom Frimpong, Muniru Sulley, Emmanuel Gyamfi, Osman Ibrahim, Kwame Opoku.
