Match Preview: Aduana Stars vs AshantiGold

Reigning Ghana Premier League champions, Aduana Stars will confront one of the title contenders; AshGold SC in this Match Week 13 fixture in Sunday.

Dormaa will host this top liner as Aduana Stars seek the maximum points which will be enough to return them to the summit of the league table.

The Ogya Lads started life under new Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin brilliantly. The former Black Starlets tactician guided his side to an away win against Dreams FC during the last match week.

Fabin and his boys will be keen on denying AshGold a point in this fixture.

The visitors come into this one with confidence dealt a dent and their preparatory period marred by a seeming confusion that was caused by a decision to demote Assistant Coach Yakubu Mambo Shaibu to the club’s youth setup.

The AshGold hierarchy in response to their heavy and embarrassing 6-1 defeat to WAFA responded by making some changes to the technical team.

Italian Robert Landi has been installed as head coach while ex player Thomas Duah has been named his assistant. This arrangement sees Mambo who was acting as head Coach relegated to the role of club scout and academy coach.

A bitter Mambo reacted to this development by resigning, a situation leading to some fans besieging the training grounds.

Hopefully they will be able to put this behind them and push for a positive result at Dormaa against Aduana Stars.
