Asante Kotoko will host Accra Great Olympics on Match Day 15 of the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Friday.
The Porcupine Warriors are in excellent form in the league and will look to extend their unbeaten run against the Dade boys in this encounter - they have gone seven games without losing.
Since a 1-1 draw at home against Real Tamale United, Asante Kotoko have won their previous five league matches, their longest winning streak in the competition in the last two seasons, a run that has propelled them to the top of the standings with 30 points, one more than all but arch rivals Hearts of Oak.
Coach Prosper Ogum's side hasn't lost at home since a 3-2 setback to King Faisal, with three wins and one tie against Real Tamale United (1-1), WAFA (1-0), AshantiGold SC (3-1) and Medeama SC, respectively (1-0).
Following a 1-0 setback in the MTN FA Cup Round of 64, which ended 1-0, the Porcupine Warriors had only lost twice in all competitions.
Great Olympics have won two and drawn three of their previous five League matches, snapping a winless streak that began on December 26 in Accra when they defeated Eleven Wonders 2-0.
Coach Annor Walker has a perfect record against Asante Kotoko, and he hopes to keep it up to get his team's season back on track. Last season, the MTN FA Cup winner defeated the Porcupine Warriors 1-0 in the first round and drew goalless with the league leaders in the second round of the 2020/21 season.
On Match Day 14, Accra Great Olympics beat King Faisal to end their four-match losing streak at the Accra Sports stadium.
Asante Kotoko have less injuries in camp.
Maxwell Abbey Quaye, who scored five goals before joining the Black Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations, aspires to return to the starting line-up to help shore up their attack.
Asante Kotoko are unbeaten in their last 6 matches played and have conceded just a goal, scoring 7.
Great Olympics in their last five matches have scored 5 goals conceding 2 and are unbeaten in their last 5 matches.
Philip Arthur Forson is the centre referee and shall be assisted by Kenneth Tweneboah and Francis Bondzie Arthur together with Joseph Kwofie as fourth referee and Augustine Asante as match commissioner.
