Asante Kotoko will start serving their stadium ban against struggling side Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium. 

The club have been banned and will play five home matches behind closed doors due to the shooting incident which left one fan badly injured last weekend after their defeat against Berekum Chelsea.

Maxwell Konadu looks to be under early pressure and his side have failed to match his feats during his previous spell at the club.

In the 2011/12 season, Kotoko only lost three games under Maxwell Konadu. His team has already lost two games after matchday 4 this season as the Kumasi based side now sit 9th on the table.

The Porcupine Warriors desperately need a boost and the upcoming clash against Dwarfs may provide it.

This season has been a real nightmare for Ebusua Dwarfs. On Wednesday, they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Liberty Professionals which meant four consecutive losses so far this season.

After the game, head coach Assibu resigned from his post at the club. On Thursday, the Mysterious Dwarfs appointed Ernest Thompson Quartey to fill the vacant role.

Ernest now has to find ways to boost the confidence of his men and hope for a huge response against league giants Asante Kotoko.

In their last five meetings, Asante Kotoko have won three and lost one (W3 D1 L1). The hosts will go into this game with some hope of getting a result.

Prediction: Asante Kotoko 2-1 Ebusua Dwarfs
