PREVIEW: Asante Kotoko vs Tema Youth

The toast of the first round of the season will roll off in this final game of the first section of the 2016/17 season at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium between Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Tema Youth.
The unexpected has befallen the porcupine warriors after their "squeezed" lost against Accra Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium on match day eight and has since kept falling down the league table without a win and are now lying 9th on the log.
Coach Frimpong Manso who took over from Zdravko Lugorosic for the interim has not been able to shape up the fallen destiny of the club and with a game left to end the first round, the former Asante kotoko player will be wanting to end it well with a win.
Against the Harbour Boys, Kumasi Asante Kotoko will be ready to give a free gate with soothe melodies coming out for their new appointed coach, Steve Pollack, who will be in the stands with a convincing win against Tema Youth.
However, the Baba Yara Sports Stadium has been an "unfavourable" grounds for the "kum apem" lads this season finding it difficult to get the points at home.
Nothing less than a win will further weaken the already dented souls of the Kumasi Asante faithfuls and will be set to usher in the second round of the season anon with "good" win.
Tema Youth have not been very good away travelers thus far this season but have been a tricky side on the road for home side which will send shivers to Kumasi Asante Kotoko who have not been very much convincing at home this season.
The main quest of the Tema Youth side this season will be, at least, to survive the season as they have entered in the season as newcomers and will be content with what they have achieved so far this season.
It will be a full cap on their head after the half of the season if they are able to beat Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
They will be fully focused to get a point in Kumasi as they will be vitalised with the tonic of Joseph Paintsil availability who has proven to be a quality player for the side.
The three points available for this game will be very much important for any of the side to place well on the league log before the end of the first half of the season.
