Asante Kotoko coach, Prosper Narteh Ogum has named a 20-man squad ahead of their match week 30 game in the Ghana Premier League against Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.

The league leaders will welcome the Blues at the Baba Yara Stadium as they search for a victory to close in on the league title.

Midfielder Richmond Lamptey, whose 30 months ban from football begins next season has made his injury return to the squad.
