Midweek match preview

13 years ago

At this stage of the season, very little mistakes can be afforded by clubs with six games left to wrap up the OneTouch Premier League.

A total of 18 points lies in store for the taking by each team beginning today as all sixteen teams get busy with match-day-24 games.

Leading by nine points at the top, Asante Kotoko would be seeking to pick up more points when they play in Sekondi this afternoon as they attempt to annex their 20th league title.

The Porcupine Warriors would take on relegation threatened, Hasaacas, who are lying just a step above the bottom-placed side.

Heart of Lions remains undeterred by the 9-point gap at the top. The Kpando-based side, who are placed second would be away at the Anane Boateng Stadium to Kessben FC. Lions would be looking to claim the three points and maintain their chase.

In Dansoman, Liberty Professionals would seek to revive their flagging fortunes and seek a Champions League place when they host Berekum Arsenals.

Liberty, seem to have dropped off the pace to challenge for the title after slipping into third place as Cecil Jones Attuquayefio tries to turn things around.

Isaac ‘Opeele’ this week claimed to turned down the chance to be coach of Heart of Oak but the Tema Youth technical head would have to prove he was worth the approach when the two clubs square up at the Tema Park.

Hearts, the reigning champions have struggled all season and are completely out of the reckoning for the title but Tema Youth have their own issues too. They are just two places above the bottom-placed side and would be playing for survival.

It is a game for survival, as far as we are concerned, and only victory will give us hope and satisfaction in the competition,” Opeele said.

AshantiGold would try to maintain their good form when they play Zaytuna FC at the Len Clay Stadium.

King Faisal would host Real Tamale United at the Baba Yara Stadium while Gamba All Blacks welcome Real Sportive to the Swedru Park.

At the Ohene Djan Stadium, Wa All Stars can add up to the misery of Accra Great Olympics, who look certain of joining exiting the premier league as they remain bottom with 16 points.
