Kumasi Asante Kotoko take on their arch-rivals in the second leg of the [email protected] anniversary match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Hearts will be hoping to revenge their 3-1 loss to Kotoko in the FA Cup final and put smiles back on the faces of their fans.
Early in the week, Hearts midfielder Winful Cobbina said the Phobians would go into the game without pressure and were primed to hand their opponents a shocking defeat on their own grounds.
“As for Hearts-Kotoko matches, no one can predict them, but I am confident we will record another win like we did the last time because we now have new set of players and they are doing very well,” Cobbina told the Graphic Sports.
Kotoko coach, Steve Pollack is convinced his side will get one over their rivals.
Yes we lost in the first leg but we will overturn the results and put smiles on the faces of our fans,” Pollack said.
“Though this is a preseason game, matches involving Kotoko and Hearts are of much importance to both clubs because there is a bragging right at stake.”
