The team currently managed by former Ghana head coach Mariano Barreto is second on the Ghana Premier League standings on 47 points – two points adrift leaders Hearts of Oak.

Barreto is expected to make few changes to the starting line up that drew 0-0 at Aduana Stars over the weekend.
Wednesday Cup game against the lower-tier side represents another opportunity to play in Africa next season and Kotoko is aware of the fact that they cannot treat the BYFA game as less important.
