A result could mean a lot for the survival chances of both sides with a win crucial to the way both sides’ season could shape up.
The longer RTU stay without a win the harder it will be for them to get one and although their away form has not been the best, the Pride of the North have lost three and won one of their four away games, they will be expected to dig deep and get their first win of the season against their fellow strugglers.
All Stars will be looking to lift themselves out of the relegation zone, though results will have to go their way. A win coupled with the right results could see them go two places above the relegation precinct, while a defeat will see them well and truly drawn into the demotion scrap.
With both sides having managed just one win between them in 18 league games so far, a draw seems to be the most expected out come.
Robert Dabuo may miss the match after he had to be substituted early in the second half against Berekum Chelsea with the man who replaced him in that game likely to take his place in this one too.
