The longest non-winning side in the league, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, will come up against the second best away performing team, Dreams FC, in match week twenty-three (23) at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The porcupine warriors are yet to win a game in their last five league games after the first round losing twice (2) and drawing three (3) which has moved them away from the top four position.


Their match week twenty-three (23) will mean a lot to the club to break the non-resemblance feet chalked by the club in recent matches by salvaging something positive against Dreams FC at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.


Kumasi Asante Kotoko are just lying fifth (5th) beneath Dreams FC on the fourth (4th) position with only two points separating them and the "kum apem" lads will make it a break to bring smile back to the faces of their teeming supporters by beating Dreams FC.


Recent performance of the team has brought internal fracas among management members and the board which has spread to divide the supporters of the club. Getting a vital victory against Dreams will push the team upwards the league ladder and will probably settle out any wrangling's going on in the club.


With an advantage over Dreams FC from their game in Dawu during the first round encounter which ended one nil via Dauda Mohammed's 15th second winner, Kotoko will be keen to get things moving on again, at least to polish back their title ambition run with the likes of Ahmed Adams and Eric Donkor back in the squad.


In as much as Dreams FC run riot against Berekum Chelsea in their last league game which ended 4-0, they have been unpredictable on the road and as greenhorns in the league, their output away from home has been fairytale.


Dreams FC are in to cause seemingly troubles for Kotoko in Kumasi as they intend to get a favourable results to strengthen their position on the league log and will be in Kumasi on a revenge mission as they lost to Kotoko in the first round at Dawu.


Dreams FC have been impeccable and brilliant in the Ashanti Region in their first season beating all their opponents in the region. Ashanti gold and New Edubiase United all lost to Dreams at home and Kotoko will be in to curtail such an enviable record by the "dreamers".


It will be a fascinating encounter at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium as to who gets the all important points between Michael Osei's team and C. K. Akunnor's side.
