GPL Preview: Medeama vs Aduana Stars
Medeama SC got their top four finish aspirations back on the right course after going 5th on the league table following two successive victories.
The Yellow and Mauves will be hoping for a three straight win for the second time this season when they host title favourites Aduana Stars on Saturday.
A win at the Tarkwa and Aboso this weekend will see the two time FA Cup winners usurp both Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko SC to go 3rd on the league table.
They recorded a resounding victory last weekend when Great Olympics were handed 3-0 thrashing at their own backyard.
Right back Amos Korankye has apologized and returned after going AWOL but he is likely to miss Saturday's fixture due to a club sanction.
Despite being the best away performers this season, Aduana Stars are winless in their last five and only one win in their last eight.
They are desperately poised to end the recent poor show on the road with a win on Saturday at a venue they were 1-0 victors last season.
The Fire Boys recovered from a 3-1 defeat they suffered last week Wednesday at Wa with an emphatic 2-0 win over Ebusua Dwarfs last Sunday.
They are now leveled on points with leaders WAFA SC with only goals difference keeping them in the second place.
Daniel Darkwah has recovered fully from a slight injury he sustained at training last Friday which kept him out of the last league game.
