KUMASI SPORTS ACADEMY VRS AMPEM DARKOA LADIES

Kumasi Sports Academy will host champions in waiting, Ampem Darkoa Ladies at the Bantama Astroturf in Kumasi. KUSA will go all out against the holders in their quest to avoid relegation.

Ampem Darkoa Ladies will only play for pride on the final day having wrapped up the championship last week.

FOSU ROYAL LADIES VRS ASHTOWN LADIES

Bottom placed Ashtown Ladies are expected to put up a good fight against Fosu Royal Ladies at the Ohene Ameyaw Park. The Kumasi based side have been uninspiring the whole season as they languish at the bottom of the table with 14 points – 20 points behind leaders Ampem Darkoa Ladies. Debutants, Fosu Royal Ladies have had a stellar campaign – per their standards, following their promotion to the topflight. The Techiman side are 6th with 21 points and a win against Ashtown Ladies will keep them in the League.

DREAMZ LADIES VRS SUPREME LADIES

Dreamz Ladies will host Supreme Ladies in a regional derby at the Bantama Astro Turf  in the final fixture of the 2023/2024 League season. Dreamz Ladies head into this fixture buoyed by last weekend’s 1-0 win over city rivals Ashtown Ladies, while Supreme Ladies drew with Kumasi Sports Academy.

Both teams are fighting for the third position on the log. While both teams have had a good run this season, it all comes down to this last match for a respectable position to mark their good performance this season.
