League leaders Asante Kotoko will host Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs on match day 24 of the Ghana Premier League at the Obuasi Len Clay stadium on Thursday.
The Warriors come into the game with two wins on the bounds against Legon Cities (1-0) and Dreams FC (3-1) – and have their eye on the three points to retain the top spot.
Kotoko’s only defeat at home came at the hands of Medeama SC on match day 21 as they gave away an early lead to lose 2-1 to the Tarkwa lads – Mariano Barreto’s only defeat since he took office in March.
For Asante Kotoko, Coach Mariano Barreto will be a happy man as two of his strikers Michael Vinicius and Francis Andy Kumi both got on target on Sunday against Dreams FC.
Kumi replaced Vincius in the second half and immediately stamped his authority on the ground by winning a penalty which was expertly converted by Ismail Ganiyu. The former Unistar Academy forward later got his name on the score sheet to give Kotoko a 3-1 advantage.
Ebusua Dwarfs have been very unpredictable in this campaign – picking some incredible on the road. They defeated Liberty Professionals (2-1) and drew 1-1 with Aduana FC and Great Olympics. The Cape Coast side also defeated Legon Cities (2-1) and Inter Allies (2-0) at the Accra Sports stadium.
Great Olympics will play at home to two-time champions Aduana Stars at the Accra sports stadium at 6pm.
