Just a few hours to their crucial FA cup clash against second-tier side Asokwa Depotivo at the Obuasi Len clay sports stadium, Kumasi Asante Kotoko received a verdict from the Ghana football association banning their first-team coach Mariano Barreto and vice Captain Emmanuel Gyamfi three matches and two matches respectively.
Though the two can still feature in today’s game, Kotoko management believes the timing of the verdict is wrong and could unsettle their team.
However, we’ve looked at how Kotoko could line up against last season’s opponent who shocked them by 2-1.
We expect Kwame Baah to remain in post, Christopher Nettey to return to the team after missing King Faisal’s game, Appau Andrews, and Abdul Ganiu to pair at the back with Imoro Ibrahim keeping his place in the team ahead of Patrick Asmah.
Mudasiru Salifu, Adom Frimpong, and Fabio Gama to start in midfield
While Emmanuel Gyamfi, Augustine Okrah, and Adomako Evans will likely lead the attack.
