Leaders AshantiGold SC to square off with Medeama SC at Obuasi Sunday

1 month ago

League leaders AshantiGold SC will seek to keep hold of their position when they take on Medeama SC on Sunday at the Obuasi Len lay stadium.

Their transformation in this seasons League has been magnificent under Milovan Cirkovic especially at home where they have scored 13 goals this term.

The Miners also recorded their first win on the road last week in a 2-1 win against Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium.

AshantiGold remain undefeated at home in the premiership this campaign as they have won three of the four games with the other being a draw.

Midfielder Appiah McCarthy has scored three goals from free kicks in Obuasi this season making him deadly in dead ball situations and a free kick expert.

Richard Osei Agyemang is back from suspension and is available for selection on Sunday. Amos Addai and Dacosta Boadu are all doubtful for the match after picking up knocks against Great Olympics in Accra. Amos Addai scored the equalizer for the Miners but hobbled off and was replaced by Yaw Annor.

Medeama SC have not been good travellers this season, winning only once in four attempts. They lost 2-1 to Dreams FC, drew goalless against Legon Cities and got punched 5-4 by WAFA in their last away game.

The Mauve and Yellows beat Aduana Stars 2-1 last weekend to make it two wins from eight matches since the season began.

Coach Samuel Boadu’s side are travelling to an unfriendly terrain as they have managed only one win there since joining the Ghana Premier League.

Their only victory over AshantiGold at the Len Clay Stadium was in 2012.

Medeama are 10th in the League standings with 10 points and a win on Sunday could see them move into the top six.

First choice goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi is not available for this fixture due illness paving way for Frank Boateng to face his former club.
