Kotoko are gradually closing in on the title, while the relegation battle heightens with five matches left to end the season
Debutants, Inter Allies say they are braced up for a big test against the league leaders, Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday. The match has been moved from the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi to Accra because of the temporary home ban Kotoko are serving. The Porcupine Warriors hold a 10-point advantage and are bent on wrapping up the title quite early. Inter Allies on the other hand have been the best performing side in the last few weeks as they fight hard to beat the drop. As regards their recent performances, they have what it takes to shock the league holders.
Still at the Accra Sports Stadium, but on Sunday, Hearts of Oak will be seeking to avoid a fourth straight defeat as they host Bechem United. The visitors will be without the league’s top scorer, Augustine Okrah.
Relegation threatened, Amidaus Professionals have been paired with Ashgold at the Tema Park, while King Faisal make a trip to Wa to face All Stars.
Second placed, Heart of Lions are up for a tricky away test as they travel to Cape Coast to play against Ebusua Dwarfs. Dwarfs, who are fighting hard to maintain their premier league status, have improved tremendously since J.E Sarpong took over a few weeks ago.
Top four chasers, Sekondi Hasacas will be playing as guests to New Edubiase United.
The derby between Aduana Stars and Berekum Chelsea could pass as the biggest match on the weekend’s schedule.
