Ghana Premier League heavyweights Kumasi Asante Kotoko will be without the services of some vital squad members ahead of their game against King Faisal on Saturday.
Habib Mohammed and Christopher Nettey will miss the match-day 32 encounter against King Faisal Babes while Patrick Asmah is also expected to miss the crucial clash due to illness.
The news was confirmed by the club ahead of Saturday’s showdown at the Len Clay sports stadium, a match the Porcupine Warriors will be aiming to redeem themselves following their heart-breaking 0-1 loss to Accra Hearts of Oak last weekend.
Habib, Nettey and Asmah all started the loss to the Phobians but looked to have picked up respective injuries which has ruled them out of the weekend’s game.
Samuel Frimpong and Imoro Ibrahim could be given a chance to enter the starting line-up for the game in Obuasi.
A win for Kotoko will see them move level on points with Hearts, who are at the top of the Ghana Premier League table, though the latter will play Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday.
