13 years ago

The weekend’s round of matches in the OneTouch Premier League would see twelve teams in action on Saturday as four have their games rescheduled.

Liberty Professionals would attempt to improve their title ambitions as they try to scupper Asante Kotoko’s bid for the trophy when both sides clash on Saturday at the El Wak Stadium.

The Dansoman-based side, who slipped to third on the table after defeat in midweek are now ten points adrift the leaders as they prepare to host the Porcupine Warriors, who still have a game to spare.

Another defeat would leave Jones Attuquayefio’s side seeing their quest to mount a serious title challenge fading as Liberty gun for their first silverware.

Asante Kotoko ae yet to lose again since AshantiGold beat them in the first round and Liberty are hoping to become the second club to beat the Porcupine Warriors in the domestic competition this season.

Berekum Arsenals fresh from their victory over Hearts of Oak would travel to the Port city of Tema where they attempt to add struggling Tema Youth to their list of clubs gunned down recently.

Tema Youth are two places up the bottom placed side and would need a win to improve their hopes of remaining in the big league after an impressive debut last season.

Mohammed Gargo’s AshantiGold would return to their favourite Len Clay Stadium to play Real Sportive.

At the Sekondi Sports Stadium, Hasaacas would need to claim all the spoils to enhance their chances of remaining in the premiership when they take on Wa All Stars, one the best performers during this second round. The Giants of the West are just a place above the bottom-placed team.

An uninspiring second round performance has heaped the pressure on Real Tamale United coach, Abdul Razak as he tries to turn around the fortunes of the club who escaped relegation last season after a late revival.

But the recent poor run by RTU could be exploited by Kessben FC as both sides meet at the Anane Boateng Stadium.

A crisis hit Accra Great Olympics would need to overcome the mass resignations that has engulfed the club after the management and the coach, Abraham Allotey quit the club on Thursday.

The Wonder Boys have gleaned 15 points from a possible 63 having only picked up three wins, drawn six times and lost on 12 occasions.

Great Olympics would up at the Swedru Park where they battle Gamba All Blacks for the three points.

The two other games involving Accra Hearts of Oak and Heart of Lions at the Ohene Djan Stadium and the Baba Yara Stadium match between King Faisal and Zaytuna FC have been rescheduled to June 4.
