Asante Kotoko have their work cut out for them when they take on Inter Allies at the Baba Yara stadium. The Porcupines are under pressure to bounce back after their Super Clash defeat as they host Inter Allies.
Coach Zdravko Lugarusic took a break after the defeat but he is back with renewed confidence and one critical aspect he must deal with is his attacker’s profligacy in front of goal.
Kotoko have scored 7 goals in 8 games, an average of 0.8 per game, not the kind of numbers a team vying for the championship should be producing. But fortunately for them, the Eleven is to One side have scored one less and conceded in every game since their opening day stalemate against Hearts.
The head to head record also favors Kotoko, having lost once in six meetings since the Labadi-based club joined the topflight in 2013.Berekum Chelsea v Hearts of Oak – Berekum
What makes the fixture a difficult one is the fact that Tema Youth are unbeaten in Tema despite playing big guns like Hearts, Chelsea and AshGold. The Harbor boys fear no foe at home but it is very important that they don’t get complacent as Medeama are well armed to cause an upset.
Goals are expected to be aplenty in Bechem when the Hunters take on highflying WAFA at the Nana Gyeabour Park this weekend but trust the home side, currently fourth, to make the most of home court as they eye up the third spot.
The past weekend was a memorable one for the Academy Boys as they humiliated WA All Stars in WA, battering the Defending Champions by four goals to one for their first away in 27 matches. And they would relish another road win as they take on Bechem United.
Bechem are under no pressure, progressing and enjoying their season under the guidance of Vincenzo Alberto. The Italian is continuing from where Manuel Zacharias left off and thus far it has been very fruitful.
Olympics will fancy themselves winners against Ebusua Dwarfs at home this weekend.
The Wonder club is yet to pick up a win on the field despite receiving three points from the boardroom, but considering the poor away record of Dwarfs, fans can be very optimistic of a positive results.
For Dwarfs, they will have to punch above their weight on this road trip to stun Gt. Olympics. A defensive counter-attacking style would be ideal to frustrate Godwin Attram’s men.In as much as their performances have been nothing to write home about, AshGold cannot afford to drop points against a troubled but resurging Bolga All Stars.
This will be the first meeting between the two and luckily for the struggling Miners they will be at home, a huge opportunity for them to get their campaign back on the right track.
Bolga can only hope not to concede a lot after shipping in 18 goals already.
