A quick switch in a cup competition takes the Porcupines on a journey to the capital and take on Heart of oak in a ceremonial match dubbed President cup at the Accra sports stadium on Friday night

Hearts and Kotoko are expected to revive their rivalry for the second time in three weeks, having played out a 0-0 draw in a seventh week outstanding league match at the Accra Stadium on February 20

Kotoko beat Hearts 2-1 in their last President’s Cup clash at the Baba Yara Stadium three years ago.
Kofi Kordzi shot Hearts ahead but a Mohammed Alhassan own goal and a Naby Laye Keita effort secured a comeback win for Kotoko

We will be going into this game with a lot of confidence after recording a 2-0 victory over Dreams while Hearts of Oak were held to a 1-1 draw against Legon cities

Coach Prosper Ogum talked about fatigue in our last game and with this being a ceremonial match, a lot of changes is expected


The Porcupine Warriors have recorded only three losses in all competitions this season and, indeed High-intensity starts have helped. Hearts of Oak have endured a difficult season so far, getting eliminated from the CAF champions league and Confederation cup, the Phobians have been bad in the league


The Porcupine Warriors have some major injury concerns, striker Andy Kumi and defender Charles Owusu are ruled out from the game, Imoro Ibrahim and Patrick Asmah will be accessed and see if they can feature.


This match will be broadcast live in Ghana and you can watch it on GTV Sports plus

As usual Asante Kotoko will build into the game and give you all the updates you looking forward to on our social media handles

The kick-off for the game is exactly 7 pm (local time) Friday.
