Kotoko and Hearts in a Mid-Week Tussle

League leaders Kumasi Asante Kotoko and former continental club masters glorious

Accra Hearts of Oak will be making a difficult journey to Dormaa and Obuasi

respectively as the Glo premiership enters 18th week.

The ‘Porcupine Warriors’ Asante Kotoko will trek to the Osagyefo Agyeman Badu Park

to face Aduana stars. Kotoko have stretched their lead on the log from 34 to 37

points whilst Aduana on the other hand is seventh on the table with 25 points.

Coach Maxwell Konadu is gradually building a good-to-remember team for the reds in

Ghana football and would be willing to have a good result in Dormaa in order to keep

their stay at the summit safe before Easter but Aduana are tactically an technically

discipline and will certainly give the fabulous boys a difficult pipe to smoke.

Aduana looks the better side to carrying the three points at stake as they are

always strong playing in front of their vociferous fans but Kotoko can not be scared

with fans and would also like to prove their wealth especially if coach Maxwell

Konadu should get his tactics right.

At the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium, soccer miners Ashantigold fc will welcome Accra

Hearts of Oak in a wit and break affair. Ashgold is eighth on the table with 23

points whiles Hearts is second on the log with 31 points.

Hearts will have a tall mountain to climb as Ashgold are poised to grabbing all the

points at stake. Hearts were unlucky last Sunday as all their effort to picking the

maximum point against Bechem proved futile and if they could psych themselves up

then they can have a good result at Obuasi but if not then the pride of Obuasi will

certainly add to Hearts woes.

New Edubiase united will also travel to the Sekondi Essipong Stadium to play as

guest to Medeama SC. Medeama is 10th on the log with 21 points whiles New Edubiase

is fifth with 28 points.

Medeama is currently struggling in the league as their top marksman Luis Agyeman is

no where to be found but New Edubiase will also be trekking without their goal

poacher Emmanuel Baffoe who is likely to feature for the Black Stars tonight in

their friendly game against Chile in far away Philadelphia.

African Champions League Campaigners Berekum Chelsea will welcome Wa All Stars to

the Berekum Golden City Park in a match which will go beyond just the three points

but everything about football.

All Stars is third on the ladder with 29 points whiles Chelsea is sixth with 27

points. Chelsea is yet to prove a point on the local scene after picking their first

three points in their first champion’s league outing in far away Liberia.

On the other hand, All Stars have paid their dues on the local front and their

position on the table is no fluke as they are tactically astute. Should Chelsea sit

up then they will certainly carry the three points at stake but should they leave

their back loose then All Stars could surprise them.

The scientific soccer lads Liberty Professionals will play as host to the Mysterious

Ebusua Dwarfs at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman. In the first match at Cape

Coast, Dwarfs suffered a real humiliation from Liberty and would like to turn the

deficit this time around.

Dwarfs occupy the fourth spot with 28 points whiles Liberty is ninth with 22 points

and would want to grab the three points at stake but Dwarfs have other ideas.

At the Kpando Park, Hearts of Lions will welcome struggling Berekum Arsenals. Lions

are eleventh on the table with 20 points whiles Arsenal is third from the bottom

with just 14 points.

Bottomed club Wassaman united will play as guest to Tema Youth at the Tema Astro

turf park in community 3. Tema Youth is twelfth on the ladder with 19 points whiles

Wassaman humbly lies at the bottom with only 12 points.

Tema Youth looks the better side to carrying the three points at stake but like it

happened to Hearts last Sunday, Wassaman can surprise Tema Youth.

At the Bechem Park, Bechem united will entertain Mighty Jets in an out-of-relegation

affair. Bechem is second from bottom on the log with 13 points whiles Mighty Jets is

thirteenth with 19 points.
