King Faisal goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim has tipped Asante Kotoko to beat arch-rivals Accra Hearts of Oak to the Ghana Premier League title.

The Asante Kotoko goalkeeper on loan to King Faisal said his side will reclaim the top spot in their upcoming games in the league.

The Porcupine Warriors failed to maintain their lead on top of the table following a 1-1 draw against WAFA on matchday 26.

“I am 100% sure and I have a very great feeling they’ll be back to the first spot," he told Happy FM.

"I know how the players are encouraged anytime things turn to go like this. They have done it before so I know the new players there would like to do something for themselves. I know we’ll come back to the first position”.

“I believe in my players at Asante Kotoko that they are not normally downhearted when things go this way if you’re playing a big club like Kotoko. Hearts is a big club too and I know what they can also do so we are hoping after the next five matches, supporters will laugh,” Danlad said.

He pleaded with the fabulous fraternity to keep supporting the team as they march forward to show off in grand style.

“They shouldn’t back off. They should continue to support the team in each game they play and I believe they will come back to the first position at the end”, he added.
