Inter Allies will embark on a trip to Ashanti Regional capital Kumasi on Sunday to face giants Asante Kotoko in the match day 9 fixture of the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Asante Kotoko sit pretty, 10 places above Inter Allies on the league table (2nd) with 17 points whilst the latter lie 12th with 9 points.
