Sports News of Friday, 10 March 2017
Inter Allies FC will need a sterling performance to see off leaders Aduana Stars in search of a second win of the season as they lock horns at the El Wak stadium this Saturday.
They suffered a painful defeat in Wa last weekend when they conceded in the last one minute of the game through a spot kick after failure to convert the several opportunities that came their way.
Centre back Uriah Elikem Kporvi will miss the fixture due to an injury he picked against Medeama SC weeks ago.
He is expected to be back on the field next week.
All other players are available for selection this weekend including George Asamoah who recovered from an injury before their trip to Wa.
Kwame Baah has not seen match action since returning to fitness.
Aduana Stars have intentions of maintaining top spot with a win on Saturday but that looks like impossible since they visit a team they have never scored against at away.
Two headed goals from Daniel Darkwah and Derrick Sassraku were all the Fire Club needed to put Hearts of Oak to the sword last Sunday at the Nana Agyemang Badu park.
They levelled on points with Asante Kotoko SC.
Stephen Anokye Badu makes a return to the squad from suspension likewise Joseph Addo who has been out with an injury he sustained against Bolga All Stars.
Daniel Darkwah is fit to play on Saturday. He couldn’t finish the game last weekend after limping off.
Derrick Sassraku has also returned to training after recovering from an injury he attracted in the first half of last Sunday’s encounter.
