Three Things To Watch As Asante Kotoko Visits Medeama SC At The Akoon Park

Matches involving the two are tumultuous, controversial and very important to both.

The Porcupine Warriors will throw everything at the Yellow and Mauves who, for their part will be looking forward to maintaining their superb form that has seen them winning two and drawing one of the three games played so far.

The upheaval in the Kotoko camp over the last few days has been unprecedented but may have a galvanising effect on a team that will be there or thereabouts at the business end.
 
Let’s take a look at three things that could affect the outcome of the match…
 
 Opoku Agyemang to enhance his value
 
In Frederick Boateng’s absence, the Yellow and Mauves now relies on Prince Opoku Agyemang to give them the goals. Boateng didn’t disappoint when Medeama played Ebusua Dwarfs and Hearts of Oak.
 
The Black Stars B forward who joined Medeama SC recently from New Edubiase  is agile, has good technique and is comfortable playing anywhere across the frontline. 
 
He can hold his own alongside the toughest of centre-backs, but rather than his physique, his guile and intelligent positioning enable him to outwit defenders.
 
His uncanny knack of being in the right place at the right time means Agyemang regularly finds scoring opportunities.
Known for his athleticism, fearlessness and bravery, he will have a resolute back four in front of him, so has no need to make any rash decisions in order to impress his paymasters.
 
The Porcupine Warriors’ centre-back pair of Emmanuel Agyemang Badu and Wahab Adams must remain touch-tight, and try to ensure that their opponent has few touches as possible.
 
Kotoko to limit the space between the lines
 
If there was one aspect of Kotoko’s defeat against Berekum Chelsea, it was the ease with which they were carved open, time and time again.
 
In many ways, it was reminiscent of the loss against San Pedro in the CAF Confederations Cup preliminary stage. Coach Maxwell Konadu has to ensure that the gaps in between the defence and midfield, as well as the midfield and attack are kept to a minimum.
 
By allowing Medeama to work those spaces, they run the risk of being pulled apart again, and Isaac Agyenim Boateng won’t need asking twice to work his magic.
 
Justice Blay returns to Medeama
 
Asante Kotoko plays as guests of Justice Blay’s former side on Wednesday, who have began to find form under Samuel Boadu. The midfielder is on a one year loan deal to Kotoko.
 
Having spent some years in Tarkwa, Justice Blay will exactly what to expect from his former side. Blay has been one of Kotoko’s most consistent performers and a lot is expected of him as the club seeks get back to winning ways.
 
How he fares will determine the outcome of the game.
