After their disappointing showing against Legon Cities at the Baba Yara Stadium last Sunday, Asante Kotoko will seek to bounce back when they trek to Sogakope for a cagey encounter against struggling West African Football Academy (WAFA) on Saturday.

The Premier League leaders, notwithstanding their clear lead, have suffered two consecutive defeats, putting immense pressure on them to make amends against WAFA, who also need a vital home win to boost their chances of staying in the elite league.

However, Coach Prosper Narteh Ogum and his men cannot afford to drop any more points, especially after their shocking 1-3 home defeat at the hands of Legon Cities.
