Kotoko, Kessben take on title chasers


A packed fixture list for this weekend’s round of Glo Premier League matches could once again throw the title race wide open and change the positions in the bottom three.

With the races for the title, top-four positions and relegation battles dominating, Sunday’s round of games will give the league an exciting lift ahead of penultimate weekend of the season.

Leaders AshantiGold will make the 30-minute trip to the Baba Yara Stadium from Obuasi to face Asante Kotoko while second-placed Hearts of Oak also travel to the Anane Boateng Stadium take on Kessben FC.

The fight to beat the relegation is certainly between the 14th and 15th placed sides – Olympics and Wise – who play each other.

Success for AshantiGold in Kumasi will give them a great opportunity of claiming a first title in over a decade. But against an Asante Kotoko side struggling for form, the Miners will certainly struggle to pick all three points.

The same script can be repeated for champions, Hearts of Oak who meet Kessben FC. Any slip by the Phobians could cost them dearly with just a couple of games to go after Sunday’s matches.

But as the top two face tricky duels away, Aduana Stars, three points off the pace at the top will return to their fortress where they welcome a Real Tamale United side who are aware that a defeat could push them further closer to the relegation zone.

Berekum Arsenals’ hopes of maintaining their top-four place would be tested at the Wa Park where they play home team, All Stars who are also keen of forcing a top-four finish.

The Golden City Park will host the game between Chelsea and Liberty Professionals while New Edubiase welcomes another top-four hopeful, Heart of Lions to the Len Clay Stadium. Edubaise will need a win to improve their standings as they sit 13th on the table.

The clash at the El-Wak Stadium will be one of the biggest games of the weekend as the 14th and 15th placed sides – Olympics and Wise – go head to head in Accra.

A win for either side will seriously boost their survival hopes.

Hasaacas who are already relegated will host King Faisal to the Sekondi Sports Stadium.
