Midweek match preview

12 years ago

With the league title decided already after Asante Kotoko clinched the title last Saturday, the remaining fifteen premiership sides would have lots to play for in midweek as the OneTouch Premier League enters match-day-28 on Wednesday.

Four teams would continue with the competition for the last Champions League place available as the battle for second place sees Heart of Lions, Liberty, Arsenals and AshantiGold all in the hunt for the continental spot with three games to end the season.

Aside the competition for continental places, the fight to avoid relegation in the 2007/2008 OneTouch Premiership would remain keener as five other clubs apart from Great Olympics – already relegated - try to escape the drop.

Liberty Professionals would attempt to heap the pressure on Heart of Lions, placed second, when they welcome Kessben FC to the Carl Reindorf Park.

The Dansoman-based side are three points short of the second-placed team and would have to win to enhance their chances of beating Lions to the position.

However, Heart of Lions would be in for a rather difficult fixture at the Len Clay Stadium where they play fifth-placed, AshantiGold.

Great Olympics, who failed to plot their way out of relegation after losing over the weekend host Berekum Arsenals at the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra.

At the Wa Park, league champions, Asante Kotoko would play their first game as champions against home team, All Stars.

The Blues would seek to avoid defeat against the Porcupine Warriors after the Reds won the reverse fixture 1-0.

Hasaacas can boost their chances of remaining in the OneTouch Premier League if they manage a win at the Sekondi Sports Stadium where they play dethroned champions, Hearts of Oak.

Real Sportive, battling relegation will play the second of their three-match home ban at the Coronation Park in Sunyani when they welcome Real Tamale United.

Another side struggling to avoid relegation, Zaytuna FC would be in action at the Swedru Park where they play Gamba All Blacks.

And at the Baba Yara Stadium, King Faisal would host Tema Youth.
