Having been handed a heavy defeat at the hands of Inter Allies FC last Saturday, Bechem United have the chance to hit back immediately, with the visit of Medeama SC.
The Hunters boast of their home dominance over the Mauves and Yellow and are ready to pounce on that to claim their first points of this campaign on Sunday.
They have beaten Medeama SC four times out of their five past meetings at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park.
This weekend’s fixture is going to be the first home game for new head coach Bismark Kobi Mensah and a win will be a perfect start to his home campaign.
New boy Isaac Asiamah Badu will wait for his debut some other time since he is struggling to be fully fit for this game.
Hafiz Wontah Konkoni is also not available likewise midfielder Moro Salifu who has been ruled out for up to three months with a muscle tear.
Medeama SC needed a 1-0 scoreline to overcome Karela United FC in a regional derby to set a winning start to their 2017/2018 Ghana Premier League campaign.
The Mauves and Yellow will have to break the unwanted record at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park if they are to make it two wins in succession.
They have managed to pick only one point from their five visits to Bechem United.
There is no better start to your maiden premiership season as a coach than winning your first two games in charge.
Samuel Boadu will like to accomplish that on Sunday against the Hunters.
Captain Joseph Tetteh Zuta is expected in the starting lineup for this encounter. He started from the bench last week.
Justice Blay and Theophilus Nyame are likely to given starts on the weekend.
