Sports News of Saturday, 18 March 2017
Ebusua Dwarfs earned a vital point at Wa in the midweek when they came from behind to share the spoils with champions Wa All Stars with a 1-1 scoreline.
They will take on undefeated title hopefuls Aduana Stars at the Cape Coast stadium this Saturday with their eyes set on another home win to keep the unbeaten home run.
Richard Arhin is likely to start for the third consecutive time since making his debut against Medeama SC. He is facing his former club Aduana Stars on Saturday.
Nicholas Gyan has netted five times in his last five appearances of the Mysterious Club. He is expected to score again this weekend as he did against same opposition last season.
Aduana Stars failed to maintain their two points lead at the top of the league log when they were held to a scoreless stalemate at the Nana Agyemang Badu park last Wednesday.
Losing this fixture could see the Fire Boys off the summit for the first time since match day two. They are pegged with Asante Kotoko SC on points.
Versatile defender Nana Yaw Afriyie has been included in the match squad since featuring for the league leaders in week two in Elmina. He is likely to start from the bench.
Michael Amenya made way for the full back whilst all other players are available for selection on Saturday with no injury concerns.
