Two premiership places available to clubs playing in the National Middle League have been settled with one left to be decided on the final day of qualifiers.

Bechem Chelsea and Sekondi Eleven Wise both booked their places in the top flight league.

Bechem Chelsea sealed their place from Zone I after beating former premiership campaigners, BA United 1-0 in the regional derby played at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Wednesday.

The hopes of Soccer Warriors and Upper Stars were also dashed just like that of BA United.

At the El-Wak Stadium, Sekondi Eleven Wise managed to stage a return to the premiership from the Zone II after a over a decade, beating Samartex 2-0. The other contenders in the zone were Norchip and West Ham.

There is still a place to fill in the top flight league with Saint Mirren, Royal Knights and Power FC all in the hunt of sealing it from Zone III.

Mirren improved their chances of making their dream debut in the premiership after beating Knights 2-0 while Power FC’s return hopes were boosted by a 1-0 victory over Fairpoint.
