Ace sports writer and broadcaster, Kwabena Yeboah believes Asante Kotoko are ahead of the remaining 17 clubs and have it takes to win the ongoing Ghana Premier League.

The Porcupine Warriors have been sensational in the second round of the league and currently sit on top of the league log with 45 points after 25 matches played.

Kotoko has failed to annex the Ghana Premier League for the past seven seasons.

But according to the Sports Writers Association of Ghana [SWAG] president, Asante Kotoko has all the materials to be champions but cautioned them to be sharper upfront.

"I watched Hearts of Oak against Elmina Sharks and I thought Hearts look very very sharp, they are quicker to react and I think their finishing is improving, between Hearts and Kotoko I think Hearts looks slightly sharper at this stage," he told Kumasi based Oyerepa FM.

"Kotoko have the material, brilliant defensive, midfield but the finishing is problematic.

"My candid objective professional view is that Kotoko is slightly ahead of the other teams in terms of experience, the way they contain their opponents.

"They are occupying the top, I will be surprised if they don't go the full distance to win the league," he added.

  • What next?

Asante Kotoko will host WAFA in the matchday 26 games at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium on Saturday.
