Kumasi Asante Kotoko followed up their second window transfer market activities with the signing of another three players during the mid-season break.

The intensive overhaul of the squad including hiring of a new Coach, Steve Polack to turn the fortunes around, caused pundits to rank the club one of the favourites to finish well in the season, especially looking at the performance of Polack in the first round in which he finished in the top-four with Brekum Chelsea.

After a rather poor games to their first round of the GhPL which also led to speculations of Zdravko Lugarusic's possible sacking, with outgone Frimpong Manso worsening the situation, Polack moved in to salvage image and please the fans, picking up wins on the road and at home against lower division sides Proud United and Wassaman in MTN FA Cup round of 32 and 16, with another very impressive win at Tema Youth, with draws against Olympics at Baba Yara and cold-war rivals Aduana Stars in Dormaa in the Ghana Premier league.

The Scottish trainer has not lost a game since his arrival in the mid-season.

Polack and his lads are justifying the high morale in camp as they intend to challenge seriously for the GhPL title and at worst, to win the MTN FA Cup for a continental ticket.

"Am focusing on both the league title and the MTN FA cup because both can win the club a continental ticket to Africa." He said.

He added; "We created a lot of chances that we could have won the game by five or four goals to nil after the second half, the most important thing is the win and we should move on our next game."

Saddick's arrival is seen as a direct replacement for Dauda Mohammed who left for Belgium side Anderlecht last season as Yakubu Mohammed and other attackers have not live up to expectation.

But Polack explained, the forays in the transfer market is to add steel to the club for the challenges ahead.

"All the players have accepted me, we are working hard towards my principle and philosophy and am also okay with all the players at the moment."

Despite the signing of established forward such as Yakubu Mohammed and Abass Mohammed at the start of the season, The Porcupine Warriors scored 9 goals from 15 matches.

Polack now looks poised to solve the striking problems with the acquisition of former Starlets attacker Saddick Adams.

The "Wo Kum Apem aa Apem beba" lads placed seventh on the Ghana Premier League (GhPL) log at the end of the first round but currently lies on the 5th position.
