GPL Preview: Asante Kotoko vs Berekum Chelsea

Asante Kotoko SC will be trying to recover from last week's 1-0 to Bechem United this Sunday when they are about to tackle Berekum Chelsea in Kumasi.

They are only a point behind Asante Kotoko SC and win on Sunday will aid them usurp the Fabulous lads with the aim of finishing within the top four in the end.
