Soccer News of Wednesday, 22 July 2015
The 2014/2015 First Capital Plus Premier League enters week 23 today with some mouth-watering encounters across the eight centers.
Spearheading the fixtures today is the match between threatened Accra Hearts of Oak and Kpando Hearts of Lions at the Robert Mensah Sports Stadium in Cape Coast.
Both clubs, find themselves in the relegation basket and a win at all cost will be premiering on the agenda of both sides. Hearts of Oak are playing home away from home due to a ban slapped on them by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association.
The phobias are lying fourteenth on the league table with 26 points whilst Hearts of Lions are thirteenth with 28 points.
At the Sogakope Park, sensational West African Football Academy (WAFA) will treat beleaguered Asante Kotoko to a scientific football fiesta.
WAFA have really sold a very good football to lovers and followers of the Ghana Premier League and their position on the league log (fourth) with 33 points speaks for itself.
Asante Kotoko have been faced with a lot of issues and according to coach of the side, David Duncan his players are psychologically down and need to rise up, but I hope they do before kick off today otherwise WAFA will certainly add to their woes.
The Porcupine Warriors enters into this game with 29 points and are lying eleventh on the league table. A win by WAFA over Kotoko today could push the visitors down into the relegation zone.
At the Berekum Golden City Park, Chelsea will play as host to Liberty Professionals. Undoubtedly, Berekum Chelsea was the best team of the week last weekend for recording a 3-0 win over Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium and that should be a motivator going into this game.
Chelsea is second on the log with 36 points whilst Liberty Professionals are eighth with 31 points.
At the Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi, AshantiGold fc and New Edubiase United will engage in the battle of the Adansi. The soccer miners are at the summit of the table with 40 points whilst New Edubiase lies tenth with 29 points.
