The weekend’s premiership schedule begins on Saturday in Tema where Tema Youth back from their mid-week defeat in Sunyani welcome Heart of Lions.

A win for Van Der Plyum’s side would see them move to the top spot on pegging with leaders, Hearts of Oak on points as they Phobians do not play until Sunday.

But for Tema Youth, another defeat could see drop from the eleventh position though they have a game in hand.

On Sunday, Accra Hearts of Oak after their second consecutive drawn game would be away at the Swedru park where they play Feyenoord Academy.

The Phobians have a game to spare but have seen their six point lead cut to a point by the second placed team while AshantiGold, who are presently third have a game in hand are two points shy of the leaders.

Hearts would need to win in Swedru to avoid losing their grip at the summit as relegation also stares at Feyenoord.

At the Ho sports stadium, Great Olympics after picking a point from Kpando in mid-week take on Gamba All Blacks.

The Len Clay stadium would see AshantiGold battling to stop an improving King Faisal side. Faisal ended the Miners’ unbeaten run in the first round of the premiership when they won at home.

Hasaacas would try to prevent a consecutive defeat at home after last losing 2-4 to Heart of Lions.

Bofoakwa Tano play Power FC at the Sunyani Coronation while bottom-placed, Real Tamale United welcome Liberty Professionals to the Kaladan park.
