Asante Kotoko striker Kofi Nti-Bokaye is a major doubt for Sunday’s Super Clash against Hearts of Oak.
The 26-year-old is battling an unspecified illness with just two days to the big game at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Coach Mas-Ud Dramani will wait on a report from the Kotoko medical team on Friday before taking a final decision on the striker.
Nti-Boakye only returned to training on Monday after surviving a car crash a two weeks ago.
His absence will be a major blow to the Premier League champions who are looking to get one over their arch rivals on Sunday.
