Match Preview: Kotoko v Liberty

Struggling Kumasi Asante Kotoko will host on-fire Liberty Professionals on Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Both sides have met 26 times in the past with Kotoko winning 16 games, drawing 5 and losing 5 games to Liberty Professionals.

The game against Liberty Professionals on Sunday is taking place at the backdrop that Kotoko are currently at the bottom of the league table with five points.

After ‘sacking’ their coach this week, it will be interesting to see how the players of Kotoko respond on the pitch. A loss by Kumasi Asante Kotoko at their own backyard may force the hand of Patron, the Asantehene to dissolve the Management team who are already under intense pressure for their poor handling of their coach, David Duncan.

Liberty Professionals approach this game very confident after beating defending champions, Ashgold last Sunday by five goals to one. Liberty Professionals are currently 4th on the Ghana Premier League with 10 points.

Liberty Professionals away record at the Baba Yara stadium is not encouraging but with Kotoko struggling this season, a fair scoreline for them would be to leave Kumasi with a point.
