3 years ago

Accra Great Olympics have set their sight on a win against AshantiGold SC as the two teams battle for points in a match day 8 tie at the Accra Sports stadium on Sunday.

Fresh from their 2-1 loss to Aduana Stars at the dreaded Nana Agyemang Badu I park at Dormaa, Accra Great Olympics are back home to face the miners in another fierce encounter.

The Dade boys last Sunday threw away an early lead to lose in Dormaa. Samuel Ashie Quaye scored in the 51st minute but that goal was not enough to hand them victory as the host capitalised on a late Yahaya Mohammed penalty to win 2-1.

Coach Annor Walker side are unbeaten at the Accra sports stadium in their last four outings winning three and drawing one in ongoing campaign.

They smashed Legon Cities 3-0, defeated Asante Kotoko and WAFA (1-0) and drew with Ebusua Dwarfs (1-1). Great Olympics sit in sixth place with 11 points, three adrift of leaders Karela United.

Their star man Gladson Awako is expected to carry the team on his shoulders on Sunday as he continues to lead by example. The former T.P Mazembe player has fitted in perfectly combining experience with skills and his versatility and winning mentality is never in doubt.

They come up against a side loaded with experience and quality. The Miners have tasted only one defeat on the road against Bechem United.

AshantiGold sit two places above Great Olympics with a one-point advantage. They are the highest scoring team in the ongoing Premier League with 16 goals, an average of 2.1 goals per game.

They are good on the counter, solid at the back, swift on the wings and very robust in midfield with Appiah McCarthy and Alex Esso deployed in that role.

Full backs Kwadwo Amoako, Abdul Bashiru and Roland Amouzou, have been absolutely brilliant in the season as they continue to be a major source of goals for the club with their intelligent wing play.

Youngster Opoku Agyemang who scored a brace on his debut against King Faisal has yet to find his rhythm since that impeccable performance on match day three.

Yaw Annor, Jacob Appau, Amos Nkrumah, Mark Agyekum, Amos Addai and David Abagna have all played decently in recent weeks, setting the stage for an exciting game on Sunday.

The game is scheduled for 6pm kick off and will be broadcasted live on StarTimes Adepa channel 247.
