Our Match Against Eleven Wonders Is A Must Win – CK Akonnor

Head Coach for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Charles Kwablah Akonnor has stressed that his side will need to win their match week 12 fixture against Techiman Eleven Wonders at all cost.

The Porcupine Warriors are currently enjoying a bad spell in the ongoing Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization (NC) Special Competition and has failed to win any of their last 2 matches.

The Reds after drawing 1-1 with Bechem United on match week 10 followed it up with a 1-0 loss to Obuasi Ashanti Gold in the Regional derby on Sunday, May 12, 2019.

Speaking in a post-match interview after their defeat to the Miners, Coach CK Akonnor indicated that they need to recover from their dip in form and win their upcoming match against Eleven Wonders.

According to the gaffer, the manner in which they will win that match is not relevant but all they need to do is to ensure they amass all 3 points at the end of the day.

“We need to win. No doubt about that. We need to win. How we win it doesn’t matter. We need to win to get on track or else we will be out of the competition and it is important that we win that match. But again we need to improve on the way we play”, he said.

Kotoko currently sits 2nd on the Premier B division standings but risks losing that spot if they do not return to winning ways in their next match. Their match against Wonders will come off at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at 15:30GMT.
