There will be plenty at stake in the round of 16 stage of the FA Cup as we are paired against Kumasi-based Division-One side, Asokwa Deportivo.
There is a chance at revenge for us, following the heartbreak in February 2020 when the stubborn lower-tier side defeated us 2-1 at Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi in the round 64 stage of the FA Cup.
That year's campaign was later scrapped after the outbreak of the COVID'19 pandemic, maintaining our status as the reigning champions having beaten Hearts of Oak 3-1 to win the last competition in 2017.
The round of 16 clash incidentally is scheduled at Len Clay, and for Mariano Barreto's Porcupines, beating Deportivo and going all the way to win what would be our 10th FA Cup triumph are huge boosts.
It does also means a lot for Asokwa Deportivo, who would be looking to do the double over us and attempt winning the trophy which will be their first major feat.
We began the title defence with a 2-0 win over Division-Two side, Bekwai Youth Football Academy and dispatched Thunderbolt FC 3-1 in the round of 32.
Deportivo also started their campaign with a walkover against Afigya Shooting Stars, beat Wassaman United on penalties and accounted for Skyy FC 1-0.
The game is scheduled to take place between July 6 and 8 at Len clay Stadium in Obuasi.
