Match Preview: Medeama vs Asante Kotoko- Mauves determined to silence Porcupines in tension match

Medeama SC will be eager to return to winning ways when they host Asante Kotoko SC at the Tarkwa Na Aboso park on Wednesday. 

The Mauves and Yellow will be determined to return to the winner’s list against the Porcupine Warriors this midweek, but it won’t be easy coming up against a side that have been a nemesis.

They are coming from a 2-0 loss they suffered at the hands of Bechem United at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park last Sunday.

Medeama SC are gunning for back to back home victories for the first time since 2012/2013 season.

Kwame Boateng and Theophilous Nyame are in contention to face Asante Kotoko SC for the maiden time since they joined the Mauves and Yellow side.

Right back Amos Korankye is expected to return to the starting lineup after missing last weekend’s trip to Bechem.

Asante Kotoko SC will be looking to extending their unbeaten to run from the start of the league to three games as they travel to Tarkwa for the crunchy fixture.

The Porcupine Warriors are hopeful of capitalizing on their dominance over Medeama SC to make it two successive victories and move to the second place on the log.

It will not be on silver platter if Asante Kotoko SC are to record a victory in the midweek. They have failed to win at Medeama SC in their last three visits.

The 1-0 win against Inter Allies FC last Sunday gives the Red family enough confidence ahead of the midweek premiership game.

Asante Kotoko SC will travel to the Western region without striker Sadick Adams who is nursing an injury.

Young left back Isaac Amponsah is also out with a slight knock.

Captain and right back Amos Frimpong couldn’t make the trip after failing to recover from an injury he picked last Sunday against Inter Allies FC.
