Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s smooth sail got crashed last week Sunday when the team lost to King Faisal by conceding three goals which is unusual with the team this season. So what led to the defeat to the city rivals.
The tactical formation that helped the team to run riot in the first four matches met a stiffer opposition when King Faisal relied on the counter attack.
It was seen that Kotoko always went flat in defense when King Faisal launched their counter attack. The counter attacking game of Coach Nurudeen was too strong that Kotoko always fell flat.
Meeting Accra Hearts of Oak with the same mindset and setup will be a doom for the club.
The high-line play by Kotoko can be exploited by players like Patrick Razak, Afriyie Barnieh and Kofi Kodzi. The swift nature of these players will make sure that the laterals of Kotoko suffer throughout the 90 minutes.
Don’t deceive yourself by thinking that the Phobians are not on form.
