Asante Kotoko will host Gt. Olympics as they eye a revenge against the ‘Wonder Club’, whereas the Hearts of Oak want to bounce back to winning ways after they were held to a draw by Liberty last weekend.

The Porcupine Warriors earned their first win in eight (8) league games with an incredible away win at Tema Youth last week. They would want to continue their rediscovered form under new coach Steve Pollack who appears to have helped the Kumasi giants find their mojo back.

Asante Kotoko suffered 2-0 defeat against Gt. Olympics in the first round and it was a defeat the 23 times champions would seek to avenge when they come face to face on Sunday  in Kumasi.

Gt. Olympics have also been enjoying good run under coach Tom Strand, so it would be a big test for the Porcupine Warriors.

Hearts of Oak handed WAFA their first defeat in seven games to end their impressive winning streak on match day 14, so they Sunday clash in the reverse fixture is going to be fireworks at Sogakope

WAFA have chance to seize the top spot after Aduana Stars lost 3-2 at Berekum Chelsea on Sunday, hence making it a must win for the Academy boys.

The Sogakope side have an incredible home record, which is the best so far in the league, but after Hearts of Oak defeated Liberty 0-3 at Dansoman, they are now a side that you can’t underrate in away games.

Last season WAFA hammered Hearts of Oak 3-0 at Sogakope and with  revenge on their minds the Phobians should tread cautiously.

AshGold at Obuasi would also eye Ebusua Dwarfs scalp when the two-side meet. Dwarfs humiliated AshGold with a 4-1 defeat in the first round, so this is an opportunity for the champions two seasons ago to stage a revival to escape relegation and also earn a revenge.

Coach CK Akunnor helped AshGold to beat Wa All Stars in Obuasi and managed a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture. This appears to be bringing the confidence of the Miners back.

Other fixtures on Sunday are as follows

Bechem United will entertain Wa All Stars at home, while Liberty Professionals will visit Tema Youth.

Bolga All Stars will face Inter Allies with Elmina Sharks taking on Medeama
