Kumasi Asante Kotoko and San Pedro return to the Baba Yara pitch today to play the last 45 minutes of their CAF Confederation tie.

Officials were forced to suspend the game after a heavy downpour which left the pitch soggy but with a clear weather in Kumasi and in accordance with CAF rules, the match will continue this afternoon at 2:00pm.

The decision to call off the game infuriated the San Pedro who accused the officials of being influenced by the home team.

“This is not a natural disaster; the game should have continued but rather the pitch is not good.We together with the match commissioner and the referee wanted the game to continue but were intimidated and influenced by officials of Asante Kotoko,” he told Kumasi FM.

“At a point I witnessed the referee was beaten by some fans of Asante Kotoko. We were kept at the dressing room for almost 40minutes with no one communicating to us. Kotoko cannot intimidate us because our team is owned by a Tunisian and we ruled CAF. We will officially complain to CAF with the happenings of incidents at the stadium”.

At half time on Sunday, neither club had scored a goal but Kotoko are optimistic of getting a comfortable win today.
