After suffering a heartbreak in CAF Confederation Cup, Asante Kotoko return to the Ghana Premier League action with a clash against Bechem United at their adopted Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday night.
It’s been a difficult few weeks for the Porcupine Warriors and they will be hoping to get the win to appease their disturbed fans.
The league now remains the only route for Kotoko to compete in Africa next season after their shock elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup.
They were beaten 2-1 on aggregate at the preliminary stage by Algerian side ES Setif.
Coach Abdul Gazale and his assistant must step up to the occasion and deliver a win.
For Bechem United, they will be eyeing a win after playing out a stalemate with rejuvenated Legon Cities.
In the league, they are having a great time and come into this clash level on point with Kotoko in seventh position.
Despite their troubles, Kotoko remain favourites to win this one and they are backed by head-to-head record.
They have won eight of the last 13 competitive meetings since 2011.
The Porcupine Warriors have also fared well in Accra.
This season they have lost 2 out of their last 5 home matches played at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The game will kick off at 6pm GMT at the Accra Sports Stadium and will be live on StarTimes Channel 247.
