Asante Kotoko’s quest for 25th Ghana Premier League title continues on Friday, November 12, 2021 when they travel to face new boys Gold Stars FC at the Bibiani Dun’s Park.
The Porcupine Warriors go into the fixture at the back of an impressive start to the season which has seen them top of the league log with two wins in their opening two fixtures.
The Kumasi based club have cultivated the habit of rallying late in games to see off their opponents but may require an early onslot againt Gold Stars, who are carving a niche for themselves as last minute performers.
In their opening two matches, the league’s newcomers have made huge statement of their intent, registering a late win over Berekum Chelsea before clawing back from the annals of defeat to snatch a point away at Medeama.
Head coach of Gold Stars, Michael also has a point to prove.
The former Asante Kotoko midfielder and coach will go into the tie with sheer determination to send a message to his former employers that he still has what it takes to manage at the highest level.
But to achieve that, he must ensure his players give optimum performance for the entire duration of the match as Kotoko have the ability to score late goals.
All five goals scored by the Porcupine Warriors this season have come in the final five minutes of their matches.
Gold Stars FC vs Asante Kotoko promises to be a cracker of a game.
