The Fire Boys could well put the league title beyond reach for others with victory at Dormaa in week 29 of the topflight

Aduana Stars could secure their second title in seven years as the Ghana Premier League enters the penultimate matchday on Sunday.

The Fire Boys sit four points clear at the top of the table with two rounds of matches to go. Consequently, three more points will be enough to clinch another title following their stunning run to win the 2009-10 season.  

Playing at home to newly-promoted Elmina Sharks this weekend, the Dormaa-based side are very much tipped to get the job done with a match to spare.

However, should Aduana stumble, second-placed Wafa will hope to promptly capitalize. Be that as it may, it will not come easy for the Academy Boys at Cape Coast where they play as guests to tenth-placed Ebusua Dwarfs.

Third-positioned Hearts of Oak cannot finish below the third spot as seven points separate them and fourth-placed Asante Kotoko. On the other end, the title is also out of sight as seven points lie between them and Aduana. But the second spot is still up for grabs, a situation which could propel the Phobians to go for three points away at Medeama.

Kotoko, meanwhile, host Berekum Chelsea, who sit only a position below, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

Reigning champions Wa All Stars have not been able to defend their title as a new winner is expected to be name in the coming weeks. But still with hopes of breaking into the top four, the Northern Blues have set sights on full points in their welcome of already-relegated and bottom-placed Bolga All Stars.

At the El-Wak Stadium in Accra, Inter Allies will lock horns with Liberty Professionals. It is expected to be a keenly contested tie as both teams face possible relegation. Allies are just one spot above the relegation zone while Liberty sit two points above the Eleven-Is-To-One.

Like the Allies-Liberty clash, the Tema Youth-Bechem United fixture is another fixture between two relegation-threatened sides. Whiles Youth are currently caught up in the drop zone on 14th position, Bechem sit two spots above. The game comes off at the Tema Stadium.

In the last game, second-from-bottom Great Olympics must win to have any chance of pushing out of the relegation area. Opponents Ashanti Gold are not exactly guaranteed safety just yet. But four points off the relegation line, the Miners’ situation is not as dangerous.
