After a three-day break, the Ghana Premier League returns with matchday eight action on Wednesday.

For Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, it is rather a prompt opportunity to return to winning ways after setbacks last weekend.

Following a 2-1 home defeat to Elmina Sharks, the Phobians, sixth on the table, are hoping to pick all three points in their away encounter with newly-promoted Karela United.

Kotoko, on the other hand, are expected to face a sterner test when they host Berekum Chelsea.

Elsewhere, Ashanti Gold have ambitions of consolidating their lead with three points in their away fixture with Wafa, who have lost their last four games.

It will be three wins in a row for Elmina Sharks should they take all three points in their meeting with Medeama.

Liberty Professionals, undoubtedly, will want to make up for Sunday’s loss to Ebusua Dwarfs when they play Dreams FC at Dansoman. The Scientific Soccer Lads sit second from bottom on the table, while Still Believe hold the fifth position.

At the Nana Ameyaw Park, tenth-placed Bechem United will lock horns with visiting Wa All Stars, who are bottom of the table.

Inter Allies, meanwhile, welcome new boys Eleven Wonders to Tema.

Aduana Stars’ clash with Dwarfs has been rescheduled due to the former’s Caf Confederation Cup midweek encounter with Fosa Juniors of Madagascar.
