In an attempt to stabilize their grip at the top of the Ghana Premier league table, Asante Kotoko will add more ‘insults to Liberty’s injury when rhe two side’s meet at WAFA’s Redbull Stadium.
Liberty has had their worse season of the top flight managing only 6 wins in the entire season, a performance that has placed them in a pajic mode with only 9 matches to end the season.
With 3 coaches in 24 matches, Asante Kotoko seem to have discovered their form with Portuguese former Black Stars manager Mariano Barreto opening a 4 point gap going into the game.
Two first half goes from former attacker Kwame Poku was all Kotoko needed in the first round to redeem themselves following series of poor results at the start of the season.
Coach Sellas Tetteh and his Assistant Nana Andy Sinason have a hard task of rescuing the Dansoman based side from ‘disgrace’ as they continue to struggle, the two have recorded 3 wins, a draw and1 loss in charge, and the Kotoko clash pose as the most difficult since assuming office.
Kotoko will come to thw fame with the best defence of the league, having conceded only 12 goals, against a leaking Liberty defence that has allowed 29 goals into their net. They however seem to close that leaking back, keeping 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games.
With an adopted home, Liberty will go into the game with a double minded approach, keeping a decent backline, and breaking the Kotoko back 4 who have had 3 of their members invited to the Black Stars and the Meteors.
Its a game that promises to be cracking for both sides, relegation threatened side against a championship winning ambition
Player to Watch:
Asante Kotoko Captain Emmanuel Gyamfi has rediscovered his form under new Coach Mariano Barreto, becoming the main man in the Porcupines set up, his two goals secured all 3 points for them, and will be looking to add morw when they line up in Sogakope.
Liberty Professionals’ Abraham Wayo has been the anchorman for his side, taking on defenders, snd providing crucial goal scoring opportunities, his 4 assists this term is the best so for the team, if he gets a day trust Liberty to have their day, and possibly collective all three points
