Kumasi Asante Kotoko will be out for revenge when they travel to the Accra Sports Stadium to face bitter rivals Accra Hearts of Oak in a 25th week First Capital Plus Premier League cracker on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors, currently placed 11th on the league log, lost 0-1 to 14th placed Hearts in the first round fixture at the Baba Yara Stadium and will be eager to record a much-needed victory which could compound the relegation worries of the Phobians.
Hearts, tied on 29 points with second-from-bottom Accra Great Olympics, will be eager to bounce back from last Saturday’s loss to New Edubiase United as any further slip will see them sink further into the relegation zone with five games remaining after this weekend.
At the Len Clay Stadium at Obuasi, leaders Ashgold will be hoping to end a run of three consecutive games without victory when they play Liberty Professionals, title-chasing Berekum Chelsea host Medeama SC at the Sunyani Coronation Park, and Sekondi Hasaacas host a resurgent Olympics at Essipon.
