Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC head coach, Mariano Barreto has made two changes in his squad that played Berekum Chelsea last weekend as they take on Great Olympics today in Accra.
Injury returnee midfielder, Emmanuel Sarkodie takes the place of suspended Fabio Gama as left-sided versatile player Patrick Asmah comes in for Augustine Okrah who picked a knock at training yesterday.
Despite picking a knock at training, the 27-year-old Augustine Okrah makes it to the bench and could come on play a little bit part in the game.
The Porcupine Warriors are looking for revenge against a ‘stubborn’ Great Olympics team who beat them 1-0 at the same venue in the first round of the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League season.
A win for Kotoko will see them open a gap at the top of the league table and would leave other clubs chasing them at the top for the ultimate and could be a season-defining moment for them in their quest to annex the big trophy into their cabinet.
Kotoko would have to dig deep this afternoon against a very strong team, Olympics, who are challenging for the league trophy themselves with just a point behind the Porcupine Warriors before this afternoon’s encounter at 3pm in Accra.
