Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko, Lawyer Sarfo Duku says his outfit are poised to make it back-to-back victories against regional rivals AshantiGold in the friendly encounter at the Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.
The Porcupines Warriors, buoyed by their back to back wins against arch rivals Hearts of Oak, twice came from behind to beat the Miners 3-2 at Baba Yara Stadium.
Former Kotoko striker Saddick Adams opened the scoring for AshantiGold but his strike was cancelled out by Yacouba, who netted a delightful free kick before halftime.
The Miners’ lead was restored after the interval by another former player of Kotoko, Eric Donkor.
Yacouba again restored parity, this time with a deft header which beat visitors goalkeeper before defender Wahab Adams secured victory for Kotoko.
According to the club’s scribe, they are aiming to inflict another defeat on their rivals to quell off notion that they are only strong at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
“We will beat them again on Sunday because we would not want people to think that we play better only at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium,” he told Ohene Bampoe–Brenya on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports.
“AshantiGold came into the game well prepared but we proved difficult for them to break so I’m anticipating another stern encounter but I trust my team to return home with another victory.”
