Ghana Premier League leader Asante Kotoko will engage old foes, King Faisal, in a derby encounter which is dubbed to be a blockbuster at the Babayara sports stadium on Sunday afternoon

After our 10 men gave a 63 minutes spirited performance to pick a vital point against Karela United on Thursday evening, Prosper Ogum will hope that his chargers will pick all maximum points when they lock horns against King Faisal who has beaten us twice already this season 

Faisal seems to find their mojo whenever they meet us, with their coach Amadu Nurudeen picking two wins (one in the FA cup) and drawing one in our last three meetings

It is going to be a difficult game, but we hope our boys will be ready as we seek to win our 24 league title.
