Ghana Premier League leaders Asante Kotoko will host Legon Cities at the Babayara sports stadium on Sunday afternoon with the aim of returning to winning ways following a shock defeat to a struggling Real Tamale United side.

Our 10-game unbeaten run came to a disappointing end in Tamale last week and Prosper Ogum and his charges will look to bounce back quickly as the league season enters its climax 

Our boys will have to be at their best if they want to get one over our former coach Maxwell Konadu who was relieved of his duties after just five games last season

After a doggy start to the season, Legon Cities have picked their mojo and have been on a good form in recent weeks losing only twice in their last eleven games 

Though they are without a win in their last 6 outings, we cannot underestimate the threats they pose from their counterattacks, we must be wary of what they can do, neutralize it and try and hurt them with all our weapons 

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.
