Ghana Premier League Preview: Kotoko's Fabin walking a tightrope

With untrue rumours of his dismissal this week, a loss on Sunday may just see the end of the former Ghana U17 boss in Kumasi

Another defeat of Kotoko this weekend could trigger the dismissal of coach Samuel Paa Kwasi Fabin, who is under intense pressure to improve the club’s standing on the log. 

The Porcupine Warriors, like arch-rivals Hearts of Oak, are enduring a torrid time in the championship this season.

With Kotoko having won four games, drawn two and lost on five occasions, Sunday's home match may well be the final straw for Fabin should he fail to steer the Porcupine Warriors to victory over seventh-placed Bechem United. 

Hearts boss Henry Wellington, on the other hand, has a short respite as his side will not be in action this weekend owing to the postponement of their game with Aduana Stars, who have a Caf Confederation Cup clash with ASEC Mimosas of Cote d'Ivoire on Sunday.

Elsewhere, leaders Ashanti Gold are eyeing their seventh victory of the campaign in their away encounter with fifth-spotted Elmina Sharks. The game is the only matchday 12 fixture slated for Saturday. 

Tying Ashgold on points, Dreams FC could assume the top spot should they snatch an unlikely win at Medeama, who sit four points below. 

Third-placed Karela United play as guests of fourth-from-bottom Liberty Professionals at the Carl Reindorf Park. 

Inter Allies are hoping to bounce back from matchday 11's defeat to Dreams when they host Berekum Chelsea in Tema. The Eleven-Is-To-one are ninth on the table.
