Karela United face Great Olympics Friday

6 months ago

Accra Great Olympics have a tough test against Karela United FC on match day 27 of the Ghana Premier League at CAM Park Friday afternoon.

The Dade boys who have won three of their last six matches, face a side that have won only two matches in nine outings in the second round of the League.

Karela United are placed 5th in the standings with 42 points after 26 games, and are just four points away from the top spot.

Coach Evans Adotey’s side have not been as impressive as they were in the first half of the season when they led the Ghana Premier League table for ten successive weeks.

Top scorer Diawusie Taylor has rediscovered his scoring shoes after going blunt in the first four weeks in the second round. Taylor has scored in back to back games – taking his season tally to 15 goals in 25 appearances.

Despite the slump in form, Karela United have the pedigree to continue their six game unbeaten run but have to dig deep to beat Great Olympics on Friday.

Great Olympics have conceded seven (7) and scored 4 in their last three away games – with the 3-2 win against WAFA being their best result on the road thus far. They were humbled at home (2-3) on match day 24 by Aduana FC - but recovered to beat Inter Allies 1-0 on match day 26 – courtesy an easy tap in by Abdul Manaf Madasiru.

Olympics are 3rd in the standings with 43 points - three points behind leaders Hearts of Oak and second placed Asante Kotoko SC.

The away record of Great Olympics has impressive following victories against Asante Kotoko (1-0), Hearts of Oak (2-0), Dreams FC (1-0), WAFA SC (3-2) and Inter Allies (2-0).

Annor Walker would expect stalwarts Gladson Awako, Maxwell Abbey Quaye, Samuel Ashie Quaye and Michel Otu to be at their utmost to cause a stir in Aiyinase.

The reverse fixture in the first round of the season ended goalless at the Accra Sports stadium.

The game which is scheduled for 3pm kick off will be shown live on StarTimes Adepa channel 247.
