Some of the supporters can also be seen wearing "T" shirts and caps in RTU colours and tooting their car horns along the principal streets of the Metropolis heightening the exciting mood that awaits the match.

Mr. Salifu Alhassan who was carrying the RTU flag on his motorbike along one the streets told the GNA Sports that Kotoko would fall flat at Kaladan in the same manner like other teams.
