GPL MATCH PREVIEW: Asante Kotoko lock horns with newly promoted Hearts of Lions.

Asante Kotoko and the newly promoted Kpando Hearts of Lions will square it off on Sunday 17 September, 2023 at the Baba Yara sports stadium in the league opener.

The Access Bank Division Zone 3 champions will make their Ghana league return against record-holder Asante Kotoko on Sunday evening.

After failing to defend the league title last season, Asante Kotoko re-appointed head coach Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum who won their last league title for them which was in the 2020/21 season. On his second coming, Dr. Ogum would be looking for an impressive performance from his charge and has made tactical signings with the inclusion of Kalo Ouattara, Julius Ziggy, the nimble-footed Baba Yahaya, and others.

After a goalless draw at Baba Yara Stadium last weekend with Nsoatreman in a friendly, Dr. Ogum and his charges are eager to start the season with a win.

TEAM NEWS:
Asante Kotoko will miss the services of mercurial midfielder Richmond Lamptey due to injury and youngster Rocky Dwamena who is in school for his WASSECE examination.
