Felix Annan handed first start in seven matches

Annan has returned to the Kotoko starting team Annan has returned to the Kotoko starting team

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan is set for a first start in 7 matches when the Porcupine Warriors face Asokwa Deportivo in the MTN FA Cup on Sunday.

This will come as good news for Annan, Kotoko’s skipper, who has lost his place in the starting eleven to Kwame Baah.

Annan was given permission by the club to have his wedding ceremony after their Ghana Premier league clash with Medeama SC in January.

Even after his return, he has had to settle for a spot on the bench with Baah who stepped in during his absence preferred to man the post for the Porcupine Warriors.

The situation has triggered debate across various media platforms and even among fans of the club.

However, as the team takes a break from league action and kickstart their FA Cup adventure, Annan is likely to make his first start since January, undertands.

Coach Maxwell Konadu is most likely to hand minutes to fringe players in the game even though he’s not underestimating the threat Asokwa Deportivo possesses.

The game takes place at the Len Clay Sports stadium with kick off slated for 3pm GMT.

Hopefully, Annan will be ready to cease his chance back into the starting team and keep his place subsequently.
