“We’ll deepen Kotoko’s recent trouble in Bechem,” Bechem United coach Kassim promises


The Hunters boss insists Kotoko will not leave Bechem without defeat ahead of the Ghana Premier League top-liner on Tuesday

Bechem United coach Kassim Mingle has insisted that they will defeat Asante Kotoko to add to their miseries on Tuesday when the two clubs meet on matchday nineteen of Ghana Premier League at the Fosu Gyeabour Park.

Kotoko suffered a major setback last week as they were pipped 2-1 by rivals Hearts of Oak in the President’s Cup which has infuriated a section of their supporters. As a result, they are expecting a good reaction from them against Bechem.

Meanwhile, Bechem’s eleven-game unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end last weekend in Tarkwa after a controversial penalty was awarded against them and Vincent Atinga calmly slotted in the resulting kick.

Also, Bechem lost the first leg 2-0 in Kumasi to Kotoko thanks to late goals from Abdul Ganiu Ismail and Samuel Boateng.

In spite of this, Bechem are still unbeaten at home this season. They have picked seven wins and shared the spoils only once after eight games.

“They should send [their anger] to other teams but not us here in Bechem”, Kassim told ghanasportspage.

“We are not afraid of them and we are very much prepared for them. At our home ground, I don’t think they can even take a point from us.

“We are preparing very well for them. You know we’ve never lost a match in our home grounds this season so we have to maintain that record and add another one to their last defeat,” Kassim added.

The visitors will be facing some of their former players on Tuesday including Augustine Okrah, Emmanuel Asante and Latif Anabila.

Kotoko lead the Premier League pack with 40 points, ten points above their hosts who sit fourth.
