The Porcupine Warriors [Asante Kotoko] today makes a journey down central to play as guest to mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs at the Cape Coast Stadium, but with fresh memories of their humiliating defeat to the host [Ebusua Dwarfs] still in mind.

Supporters of Asante Kotoko who followed their team to Cape Coast last season returned home with an unforgettable indelible ink left in their minds – 4-1 defeat from Ebusua Dwarfs.

Ebusua Dwarfs also picked a valuable point when the two sides met in the Garden City [Kumasi] in the first leg where the Idepandey boys [Dwarfs] held Asante Kotoko to a goalless draw game.

The Porcupine Warriors have a fairly good record in the second round having won two matches [Tema Youth 0-1 Kotoko], [Kotoko 2-1 Wa All Stars] and drawing two [Kotoko 1-1 Great Olympics], [Aduana Stars 0-0 Kotoko] matches.

Ebusua Dwarfs on the other hand have won two of their last four games, lost one, and drawn one whilst scoring five [5] and conceding five [5] goals on the road.

Interestingly, the biggest news that has broken the headlines going into this game is an infamous statement made by Nicholas Gyan which has no bearing on today’s match.

The striker who leads the Ghana Premier League scorers chart with ten [10] goals is on cloud nine at the moment and knows where to find the goal at the Cape Coast Stadium.

What makes this game a little dicey for Asante Kotoko is that Ebusua Dwarfs are yet to lose a game at their back yard, but that alone cannot be scary enough to entangle the Porcupine Warriors from leaving Cape Coast with a decent result.
