Aduana Stars midfielder Elvis Opoku has ruled out Asante Kotoko in the NC Special Competition title race, tipping his side and AshGold to top Zone A.
The two sides are set to meet on Sunday at the Nana Agyemang-Badu Park in Dormaa in the Match Day three of the competition.
Speaking to Sliver FM ahead of their game, the midfielder thinks their biggest threat in the group is their Sunday opponent, tipping the two sides to qualify from the zone ahead of Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
“Our main target or the team we feel as threat to us in the ongoing NC Special Competition in Zone A is AshGold,” he said.
“Someone will mention Kotoko but I feel there’s going to be pressure on their players to deliver due to their performance in the Confederation Cup campaign and with that, players will feel unwanted to make mistakes under their supporters at Baba Yara and that will draw them off in the competition.
“I tip Aduana Stars and Ashanti Gold to qualify in Zone A,” he added.
Aduana Stars lost their opener to Asante Kotoko but made amends against Eleven Wonders, winning at home by 2-1.
