Bibiani Gold Stars and Asante Kotoko will do battle at DUN’s Park on Saturday as the betPawa Premier League enters Matchday Two. 

Gold Stars had a false start to the season after losing 2-0 to Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park on the opening weekend of the season.

Cameroonian forward Geoge Mfegue, Micheal Kyei Dwamena, Sherrif Mohammed, Augustine Agyapong, Richmond Lamptey, Serge Eric Zeze and Danlad Ibrahim provide a good good link between the new recruits and the experienced players. 

Gold Stars have boosted their squad with Roland Frimping, Sadat Mohammed, William Dankyi Ntori and Ali Huzaif. The likes of Yahaya Adraman, Prince Kwabena Owusu, Samuel Amofa and Stephen Owusu Banahene also give coach Michael Osei options going into the encounter.
