Asante Kotoko

Asante Kotoko SC will tackle poor travellers WAFA SC on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Stadium as they eye a rapid return to winning ways to pile pressure on league leaders Aduana Stars. 

The Porcupine Warriors were held to a one all stalemate by newbies Bolga All Stars last Sunday after taking the lead. Any form of victory will serve as a boost ahead of the big clash on Sunday.

Ashittey Ollenu and Kwame Boahene are available for selection on Wednesday. They have recovered from respective injuries. Ernest Sowah is ruled out of this game.

Michael Akuffo and Obed Owusu were handed their first starts of the season when they visited Tamale last Sunday.

They are likely to be dropped for the midweek fixture.

West African Football Academy are still finding a solution to their abysmal away form as they embark on a journey to Kumasi to face the unbeaten Asante Kotoko SC.

They have gone twenty two matches at away in the premiership without a single victory. From behind, the academy lads best Tema Youth FC.

Young goalkeeper Richmond Ayi is yet to make his debut. He travelled with rest of the squad to Kumasi for the crunchy game.

There are no major injury concerns at camp for the Danish trainer Klavs Rasmussen.
