Matchday 17 preview: Aduana hoping to go clear as Wafa lurks

Goal Ghana
The two teams, separated by one point, are each hoping to pick up three points in week 17 of the local topflight to keep their title hopes alive

Before Wafa get the chance to make any attempt to win back the first position, Aduana Stars could stretch their lead to four points when the Ghana Premier League enters matchday 17 this weekend.

Currently a point clear at the top, Aduana play away to Berekum Chelsea in Saturday’s only fixture, and a win will as much secure the Fire Boys’ position, at least until the next matchday.

Following last weekend’s costly defeat to Inter Allies, Wafa will hope to bounce back at home with three points against a resurgent Hearts of Oak, who sit just close on the third position.

Elsewhere, fourth-placed Medeama are eyeing their seventh win of the campaign in their away clash with Elmina Sharks. The latter, a newly-promoted side, have won four games thus far.

Having won their first league game in nine matches last weekend, Asante Kotoko, under new coach Steven Polack, host Great Olympics in a game whose outcome could propel the Porcupine Warriors from the fifth to the third position.

On the sixth spot, Ebusua Dwarfs are hoping to make it two wins in a row in their away fixture with 2014-15 champions Ashanti Gold.

On the back of their impressive victory over Wafa last weekend, Inter Allies will lock horns with new boys Bolga All Stars at the Tamale Utrecht Football Academy Park.

Reigning champions Wa All Stars did not have a good first round, and surely have not had a better start to the second round following a 1-1 home draw with Ashgold on Sunday. Tenth on the table, the Northern Blues hope to have a good fight this time around when they play away to Bechem United.

And finally at the Tema Stadium, Tema Youth and Liberty Professionals will square off for three points.
