Injury hit Kumasi Asante Kotoko will battle it out for a place in the Round of 32 of the MTN FA Cup against King Faisal at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Coach Ogum Nartey bemoaned the absence of several key players ahead of their latest clash against their city rivals, with Fabio Gama the latest to be missing through injury.

Kotoko were undone by a Zubeiru Ibrahim hat-trick the last time the two sides face each other in the Premier league at the same venue.

The two teams are joint top in the Ghana Premier League and will fancy a place in the round of 32 following a brilliant start to the season.
