13 years ago

There are no derby games but three big contests take centre stage in Berekum, Dormaa and the capital, Accra as the Glo Premier League enters match-day-18.

Aduana takes on AshantiGold, while Hearts of Oak battles Heart of Lions with Asante Kotoko clashing with leaders Berekum Chelsea all on Sunday.

The Golden City clash would be an exciting fixture as a revitalised Kotoko side travel to the grounds to face the league's emerging force, Chelsea.

Chelsea are leading the way and sit fourteen points clear of Kotoko who after a poor first round are now challenging for a top four place. The Porcupine Warriors would attempt denting the title dreams of Orlando Wellington's talented side but Chelsea are aware that a win at home over Kotoko would boost their confidence as they march on in the remaining fixtures.

Champions Aduana Stars welcome AshantiGold, who have a game in hand to the Dormaa Park. Aduana would be hoping to overcome their midweek loss at Kpando to put themselves back in contention for the title.

Hearts of Oak and Heart of Lions looked to be slipping away from the top half of the table but wins in midweek has put them back in the frame of a possible top-four place.

Both sides are level on points ahead of their clash at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

Elsewhere, Ebusua Dwarfs will see All Stars arrive at the Robert Mensah Stadium, while second-placed New Edubiase with a game in hand welcome Mighty Jets to the Gyemfis Park.

After their painful home loss to Hearts of Oak, Berekum Arsenals would attempt to get back on track when they meet King Faisal at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Kessben FC would test Real Tamale United's renewed fight to avoid relegation when they welcome the second from bottom side to the Sekondi Sports Stadium.

The Coronation Park would host the clash between two relegation sides, B.A. Stars and Liberty Professionals.
