9 years ago

Fresh from their narrow win over Great Olympics in Accra on Wednesday, Asante Kotoko will stay in the Greater Accra Region this weekend as guests of Liberty Professionals.

The reigning champions who won 3-2 in the mid week encounter will seek to avenge last season’s 1-0 defeat to Liberty at the Dansoman Carl Reindorf park.

Liberty who are yet to lose a match in the second round of the season will hope to win Sunday’s match and move into the top four.

The match day 19 round of matches in the First Capital Plus Premier League will have yet another Brong Ahafo derby as second placed Aduana Stars travel to Berekum to take on Chelsea at the Golden City park.

And after their 2-1 victory in the first round, Aduana will be poised for a double over the Blues of Ghana football.

However Chelsea, who have scored in all their home games so far this season remain confident that they can manage a win over their regional rivals to improve their standing on the League table.

At the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium, league leaders Ashantigold will welcome bottom-placed BA United in a match that will be shown live on Super Sports.

BA United are battling with relegation as they are currently last on the log with 15 points out of 18 matches played.

The miners will therefore be determined to win all three points and extend their lead on the League table.

In another regional derby, Hearts of Oak will be at home in the Week 19 tie against Inter Allies at the Accra Stadium on Sunday.

The Phobians who suffered a 2-0 defeat to Wa All Stars on Wednesday, are just a point above their opponents and will be determined to win this weekend’s game and boost their chances of moving up the league log.

“Eleven is One” on the other hand will be planning to repeat the 2-1 defeat they handed Hearts of Oak in the first round after Gockel Ahortor scored in added time to give Inter Allies a win.

In other matches, Wa All Stars who beat Hearts of Oak at the Wa Stadium on Wednesday will stay at home again as hosts to Great Olympics while Hasaacas play away to WAFA at the Sogakope park.

Medeama will take on Heart of Lions at home while Bechem United welcome New Edubiase to the Bechem Park in the weekend’s round of matches.
