Kumasi Asante Kotoko will welcome Accra Hearts of Oak to the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi on Sunday in the 21 week fixture of Ghana’s premier league.
Kotoko won the first round encounter by a lone goal which saw Hearts goalie Soulama commit a howler to get them the bragging right.
It was however, cut short last week following a spate of bad performances spanning their encounters with Inter Allies (1-1), Bechem United (0-0) and Ebusua Dwarfs (1-4).
Hearts of Oak on the other hand scooped 7 points from their games with Aduana Stars (0-0), Hasaacas (1-0) and Chelsea (1-0) and look poised to claim their pound of flesh.
Kotoko again defeated Hearts on penalties to lift the president’s cup played at the Accra sports stadium a fortnight ago.
Hearts look quite a rejuvenated side under new coach Sergio Traguil and their results coupled with their impressive away record which has seen them unbeaten puts them ahead of the Fabulous lads on Sunday.
The Phobians’ top scorer, Cosmos Dauda missed team training o Friday and might not feature in the plans of the Portuguese trainer.
Kotoko on the other hand who missed the services of livewire, Dauda Mohammed will welcome him back from the camp of the Black Satellites who beat Senegal 1-0 but failed to qualify for the AYC championships slated for Zambia.
The game really looks cagey for both sides but the fun and pageantry that comes from the supporters will pass for a spectacle at the Nou camp or Santiago Bernabeu in Spain.
