Hearts of Oak vs Asante Kotoko: Preview, Possible line ups & TV Channels to watch the game

Hearts of Oak take on Asante Kotoko in the semi finals of the Tier 1 in the Normalization Committee Special Competition at the Accra Sports Stadium at 3 PM.

In a competition that saw Hearts of Oak running riot in most of their encounters an route to this stage, playing arch rivals Asante Kotoko who have proven to be tough customers in the capital in games like this will come as a game full of thrills and drills.
With so much pre match confusion particularly on the part of Asante Kotoko concerning venue and gate proceeds, a keen eye is expected to be given the game in what it is to bring in the rivalry of both clubs.
Both clubs have almost all their team intact except Benjamin Efutu and Daniel Sarkodie who are doubtful for this game for Hearts of Oak and Songne Yacouba likely to miss out for Asante Kotoko.
However in highly tensed games of a such between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko who want a win willy-nilly to have berth in Africa next season, will try to feign the health conditions of their key players so as to keep them away from opponents working against them.
All will be played for and is expected in this game from every department of the game on the field and from the technical point of view.
As Asante Kotoko look to aggrandize their prowess in Accra against Hearts of Oak, the latter will work on the smooth sailing they've chalked thus far since returning to the Accra Sports Stadium in this competition.
