Ogun will be hoping to for a bright start in his Kotoko career when he comes up Dreams FC, who will be led by a former Kotoko coach Karim Zito as their head coach Vladimir Viric continues to serve suspension.

Asante Kotoko have enjoyed recent successes agaisnt their opponent, registering four(4) wins in their last five(5) outings agaisnt them.

The last time Dreams FC had a triumph over the Kumasi based side in the league was way back in 2018 at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu.

Dreams FC however, will not come for cheap this time round as they have an impressive opening day record in recent season.

The Still Believe lads have not lost an opening day fixture in the previous two(2) campaigns in the Ghanaian top flight.

Both Dreams FC and Asante Kotoko SC have injected a bit of freshness in their playing squads ahead of the season.

Whereas Kotoko have mainly opted for relatively unknown-talented players from the lower tiers of Ghana Football, Dreams have brought in some of the most talked about youngsters in the West African country.

The Dawu based side made arguably tge biggest transfer business in Ghana with the acquisition of highly rated attacker Abdul Fatahu Issahaku on a season-long loan from Division One side Tamale Steadfast FC.

They also boostered their attack with the signing of striker Kweku Karikari and winger Adamu Amadu from Liberty Professionals and and Krytal Palace respectively.
