Sunday match preview

13 years ago

The league season is gradually winding up as the premiership is left with six matches to go. But analyst cannot be definite in their declarations at this point as they are only left to forecast about the title race and the battle to avoid the drop.

Sunday’s round of matches would go a long way to defining the season as leaders, Asante Kotoko attempt to hold onto their 9-point gap at the top.

The Porcupine Warriors would host AshantiGold at the Baba Yara Stadium in the top liner on match-day-25.

Kotoko, who have lost twice this season certainly have a score to settle with the Miners, who handed them their first defeat of the season, beating the Porcupine Warriors 1-0.

Playing at home would be a big advantage for Kotoko as they try to end the fine form of Mohammed Gargo’s AshantiGold.

There would be lots of action. And at the Kpando Park, Heart of Lions and Liberty Professionals - the second and third placed sides - clash in a game which could influence the standings after 90 minutes.

Lions, who lead their opponents for Sunday by two points, could extend the difference if they manage a win but should victory go Liberty’s way, they would leapfrog their opponents to the second position.

Troubled Accra Heart of Oak would bid goodbye to Israeli coach Eyal Lachman, who would handle the Phobians for the last time on Sunday.

The under pressure coach would guide the defending champions in their home game against Kessben FC at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

After losing in midweek, Lachman would be seeking to bow out in style but would come up against an opposition capable of wrecking his departure and his sides league fortunes.

Berekum Arsenals return to their favourite Golden City Park to host King Faisal while All Stars play Real Sportive at the Wa Park.

At the Tamale Stadium, relegation threatened, Sekondi Hasaacas will try to lift themselves up from the bottom ranks when they play Real Tamale United.

Tema Youth will try to maintain their winning form after defeating Hearts in midweek when they welcome All Blacks to the Tema Park.

The poor season of Accra Great Olympics will be tested at the El-Wak Stadium where they play also Zaytuna FC, who are also trying to escape the drop.
