The Ghana Premier League continues this weekend with Match Day 3 fixtures and certainly, there could be surprises and shocks by the close of the weekend as the unbeaten run for some clubs at the top half of the log sheet comes under threat.
Medeama SC are in rich vein of form that every contest they go into already seem destined to end in their favour. But, the Yellow and Mauves, who sit comfortably at the top of the pile by a superior goal difference would be faced with a crunchy duel on Sunday when they travel to the Capital to lock horns with Liberty Professionals at the Carl Reindorf Park on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at 3:00Pm.
Aduana Stars will look to dislodge Medeama SC from the summit of the table when they battle it out with troubled King Faisal at the Nana Agyemang Badu I Park in Dormaa.
However, the tie of the weekend is at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium where Asante Kotoko host Berekum Chelsea.
The Porcupine Warriors recorded a heavy win last weekend against Legon Cities FC and would be looking to extending that feat to the Bibires but would be faced by one of the league’s best performing side.
Maxwell Konadu’s men occupy the 5th spot and remain unbeaten after two wins on the spin while Landuet Alan André’s men are returning from a goalless draw, victory would lift their confidence to return from Kumasi with a positive result. Though it’s not going to be an easy battle, the cheers and jeers from the Home fans are expected to spur Kotoko on to go for a win.
Second-Bottom, Hearts of Oak will attempt to get their first points of the season when they slug it out with desperate Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Phobians, hurting themselves, from the loss over the weekend vs Medeama SC are yet to score a goal in the league. A win would calm nerves and give interim-coach Edward Odoom a breather but the Cape Coast dwellers are capable of spoiling the party.
Karela United, in search of their first win of the season, go back to the Tarkwa Akoon Park to rub shoulders with Mid-Table Inter Allies. West Africa Football Academy (WAFA) will continue their fine form and increase their points on the table as they travel to Elmina to face Yaw Acheampong’s Sharks at the Nduom Sports Complex.
Well-To-Do Legon Cities FC will hope to deny Dreams FC opportunity to clump up the log when both square off at the Theatre of Dreams at Dawu.
Rocked-Bottom Great Olympics, left unsettled in the league after two losses play Bechem United at the Nana Gyeabour Park while Ashanti Gold having won their opening two matches take on Techiman Eleven Wonders at the Lenclay Stadium in Obuasi.
