Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu says his team is 'ready' for the Super Two clash against Hearts of Oak next Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors recovered from two defeats to beat Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 behind close doors at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
"Kotoko is always ready for Hearts of Oak encounters," Konadu said after the game against Dwarfs. Mathew Cudjoe and Justice Blay scored late goals to ensure the Kumasi giants went into the game next weekend with their heads high.
"I believe they are always ready for us. You know matches between the two sides is a high profile game and nobody is going to relax.
"I know they are preparing very well and have one eye on this game."
The Phobians have had a good run in their last three games including a comeback win against Liberty Professionals on Sunday. A sort of resurgence for the Accra based club after a sloppy start to the campaign.
"It's going to be an interesting game anyway. We have one eye over there. The El Classico is on, let's wait and see what happens on Sunday."
