Asante Kotoko goes in search of their first win of the season against Berekum Chelsea in this matchday two fixture of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League (GPL) at the Sunyani Coronation Park on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors were not impressive in their opening fixture against Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Kotoko were held to a 1-1 draw by the Techiman based side and they were lucky to have walked out with a draw after the game.

In the last meeting between these two sides in the GPL, Berekum Chelsea emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium. Thus the Porcupine Warriors will go into the game for revenge.

Meanwhile, the arrival of Brazilian Fabio Gama will serve as a boost to the Kotoko team ahead of the game.

Coach Maxwell Konadu may hand new signings Sulley Muniru and Fabio Gama their debut game against Berekum Chelsea in this crucial encounter.

Chelsea were dominant at home last season and will prove tough customers against Kotoko at their own backyard.

Elsewhere, Great Olympics and Legon Cities will also lock horns on matchday two at the Accra Sports Stadium later today.

The two clubs drew in their opening fixtures against Medeama and Berekum Chelsea.

Olympics will be heading into the game with a lot of confidence after that result against Medeama whilst Legon Cities with their new squad will hope to beat Olympics to kick start their campaign with a win.

Legon Cities go into the game without their star man Asamoah Gyan, who is still not declared fit for the game.

Hearts of Oak will begin their league campaign against AshantiGold SC on November 24, 2020, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Phobians were prevented from playing their season opener against Aduana Stars due to coronavirus concerns.

The Ghana Health Service has given the green light for Hearts to compete in the GPL after their COVID-19 tests turned out negative.

The team is expected back in the capital to continue with preparations ahead of the game against AshantiGold SC on Tuesday.
