A Board Member of Asante Kotoko, Evelyn Nsiah Asare, has urged supporters of the club to fill the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday, September 18 when Kotoko host RC Kadiogo in the CAF Champions League match.

The Porcupine Warriors picked a crucial away victory through Isaac Oppong’s late strike on Monday, September 12, to brighten their chances of qualifying to the next stage when they travelled to Benin to defeat Kadiogo by 1-0 in the first leg of their preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Nhyira FM, Mrs Evelyn Nsiah Asare expressed fear Kotoko’s home venue for the game could prove to be tricky but has urged fans to fill up the Baba Yara Stadium as she underscores their importance for the players.

“What I am scared of is the fact that the second leg is taking place at our home ground because if you’re not lucky and they [Kadiogo] score one, you could be in trouble,” she noted.

“So we should be able to fill the park, so then we the supporters will be regarded as the twelfth player on the day to support the players. We congratulate the players, management and the technical team. They have all done extremely well,” she added.

Kotoko has not qualified to the group stage of the top tier of CAF inter-club competition since 2006.
