AshantiGold say they are ready to play league champions Asante Kotoko this afternoon at the Baba Yara Stadium in their GHALCA Top 4 clash.
The Miners, who finished fourth last season, suffered a 4-1 drubbing at the Baba Yara Stadium in a league match and are bent on
Kotoko were unbeaten in four pre-season friendly matches against lower division sides in Tamale.
AshantiGold have been but have promised to cause an upset.
"We have prepared adequately for the Kotoko duel. We have had a pretty good pre-season and going into matches with Kotoko, regardless of the significance of the competition, one needs to prepare extremely well, at least for purposes of record keeping and so we are not leaving any stone unturned," AshantiGold’s spokesperson Kofi Yawson told Dunkwa-based Solar FM on Saturday.
"We have reached satisfactory agreement in the areas of appearance fees and gate proceeds with GHALCA and all we need to do is to play our part to make the competition a success.
"Coach Bashir Hayford has done enough work on the team and the players are well aware of the task ahead on Sunday.
“It is also refreshing and motivating to know that the players have held a meeting among themselves to discuss the importance of this particular game at hand.”
Sunday’s match will be the first leg of the semi-final clash with the return leg scheduled for Wednesday.
The winner over two legs will face either Hearts of Oak or Heart of Lions in the final.
