Coach CK Akonnor has included defenders Daniel Darkwah, Wahab Adams and Martin Antwi in Asante Kotoko starting XI to face Zambian giants Nkana FC later today at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Left-back Daniel Darkwah replaces captain Amos Frimpong who will miss the epic clash due to suspension with center-back Wahab Adams taking the position of Emmanuel Agyemang Badu who has previously partnered Ismael Ganiu.
Right -back Augustine Sefa returns to the team after losing his position to Habib Mohammed against the Zambian giants in the first leg in Zambia.
Martin Antwi, however starts ahead of winger Maxwell Baakoh and will thus be operating from the flanks together with Emmanuel Gyamfi.
In midfield, will see the partnership of Kwame Bonsu and Umar Bashiru.
Abdul Fatau Safiu and Songne Yacouba will spearhead the attack for CK Akonnor’s side in their crucial must-win game.
Kotoko have so far recorded just a win in their last three matches and need to beat Nkana FC to keep their hope of booking qualification into the semis alive.
