Stage set for Baba Yara to decides Kotoko-Hearts Tango


Asante Kotoko  will cross swords with arch-rivals Hearts of Oak in their blockbuster Glo Premier League game at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

The twosome impressive score lines in their last league games have heightened the stakes in the already tension packed clash.

Not even the ten-point difference between leaders Kotoko and Hearts has silenced faithfuls of the latter.

The Phobians are drawing great inspiration from new manager CK Akunnor’s invincibility over Kotoko during his spell with Eleven Wise, and the fact that the Baba Yara Stadium has favoured them in time past.

In their 45 engagements when Kotoko hosted their old foes, 18 have gone in  Hearts’ favour, while the Porcupine Warriors have recorded 16 wins  with 11 ending in stalemates.

In similar fashion, Kotoko are banking their hopes on the fact that Hearts have not been able to beat Maxwell Konadu since joining the Red Army.

That and other factors have set the stage for the big game.

Elsewhere in the league, Berekum Chelsea after picking a point in Obuasi against Ashgold on Thursday return to  their fortress, the Golden City Park to host  fourth-placed New  Edubiase, while Mighty Jets play as guests of  Wa All Stars.

At the Dormaa Park, relegation threatened Arsenals will clash with Aduana Stars with  Medeama  welcoming Bechem United to the Tarkwah T and A Park.

Ashgold will travel down south to play Tema Youth in an expected crunch tie at the Tema Park.

Today, coach JE Sarpong’s Liberty Professionals will stay home to face Heart of Lions in Dansoman, while Wassaman United play as guests of Ebusua Dwarfs.
