Appiah McCarthy, the midfielder for Bibiani Gold Stars, exudes confidence in his team’s ability to secure their first home victory against Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko this upcoming weekend.
The Miners are set to host Kotoko at Dun’s Park this Saturday for matchday 2 of the Ghana Premier League. Michael Osei’s side has struggled to defeat the Porcupine Warriors since entering the top flight two seasons ago.
Gold Stars experienced consecutive defeats at the hands of Kotoko in their debut season and managed to secure draws in both of their two league encounters last season.
In their home matches, they suffered a 0-1 loss to Kotoko in their debut season and played to a 1-1 draw last season.
McCarthy holds optimism that the Miners can break this streak this Saturday.
The dynamic midfielder, who joined the club early this year, conveyed his aspirations to Kessben Sports:“We are preparing to pick all three points. The fans should expect the three points to remain in Bibiani. This is the time to win against Kotoko.
“In their first season, Kotoko beat them at Dun’s Park and got a draw here in the second season. So, this is the time to claim all three points in Bibiani.”
