One of the popular supporters' groups of Asante Kotoko say they've secured a Police permit for a potential demonstration against the team's board and management.

The Reds have seen inconsistent performances throughout the season, placing 11th on the log, with six matches to play in the First Capital Plus Premier League.

Despite a win against their regional rivals AshGold over the weekend at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the supporters are anxious to overturn their poor results in Accra this season.

According to the supporters' group, Hot Circles 2, written permission has been sought from authorities for their intended demonstration against the club's board and management, should the team fail to secure a respectable result against Hearts on Sunday.

Nkoo Joseph, chairman of Hot Circles 2 in Accra said: “We can’t afford to lose any game in Accra this season. We lost the Independence Cup, the President’s Cup – all in Accra – and another defeat would influence us to go on a demonstration for mismanaging the affairs of the club.”

Speaking to Adom Sports,  Nkoo went on: “We secured a Police permit on Monday and we are ready to go on the street to make our grievances clear. If Opoku Nti is not managing Kotoko well, the board should sack him, because they have the mandate to do that. And for failing to do so, it means they have confidence in him and should be blameable for the outcome of the decisions he makes."

Kotoko, whose win last Sunday was their first win in three games, are looking to avenge their 0-1 defeat to Hearts in the first round in Kumasi.
