Sports News of Friday, 14 July 2017
Bechem United will be hoping to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to leaders WAFA SC this Saturday when they are going to host the rock-bottomed Bolga All Stars.
The hosts dropped down to the ninth position after a poor run during which they claimed only two victories in eight matches.
The Hunters could move to the 5th place by taking advantage of the poor newcomers to win at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park on the weekend.
Amed Simba Toure is returning from suspension and will be available for selection on Saturday.
Daniel Egyin was sent off in the midweek. He is suspended for the weekend’s fixture.
Alfred Nelson is still nursing an injury which rules him out completely from this match.
Bolga All Stars have been completely out of rhythm and are almost out of the top flight after a winless streak in four months.
The debutants are thirteen points away from the safe zone following the horrendous series of results.
Nothing could save the Stars of the East at the end of the season except miracle after a 0-2 loss at home to Ashanti Gold SC last Wednesday.
The visitors will be facing attacking trio Hafiz Wontah Konkoni, Maxwell Frimpong and Noah Neequaye who were part of their squad in the first round.
Hafiz and Maxwell were the scorers when they beat Bechem United 2-1 in the reverse fixture in Tamale.
