Preview: Edubiase vs Berekum Chelsea

Nothing can be enough motivation for New Edubiase United than beating a rejuvenated Asante Kotoko side at the Babayara stadium with a blistering form.

They defied bookmakers predictions to harass Asante Kotoko last weekend in Kumasi with a 1-0 victory.

They host Berekum Chelsea at the Len Clay stadium on Sunday.

Prince Opoku Agyemang and versatile Felix Afriyie are expected to keep theirplaces in the team set-up after a showcase of brilliant performance against Asante Kotoko last week.

It was their first appearance for the club in the league this term.

Fuseini Zuberu could return to the squad for Sunday's match against Berekum Chelsea.

He was not selected by coach Anthony Comma in last Saturday's fixture.


Berekum Chelsea have no injuries and suspensions affecting their squad.

Seth Appiah is expected to keep his role in the starting line-up of Berekum Chelsea since he scored in their last game against Dreams FC last weekend.

Saddick Adams wants to improve on his away scoring with a goal against New Edubiase United on Sunday.
