Ghana Premier League Matchday 25 Preview; TEMA YOUTH FC vs WAFA

TROUBLED HARBOUR CITY BOYS FACES A MUST WIN TEST AGAINST THE LEAGUE LEADERS.

The ever exciting Ghana Premier league gets back into action this weekend after a two week lay off. The excitement and momentum will also be whipped up once again as the various teams take to the field to delight soccer loving fans in the country.

 

Eight (8) will be honoured across the various league centres spread across the country. At the Tema Sports Stadium, Tema Youth FC will play as host to league leaders WAFA. Arguably the two of the youthfully exuberant teams are set to lock horns come Sunday.

Tema Youth finds themselves in the relegation hot waters. Coach Edward Nii Odoom and his charges do not have the luxury of even dropping a point on Sunday since they are not safe one bit.

It will also be an opportunity to revenge the painful 1-2 defeat defeat they suffered in the reverse fixture in the first round. WAFA climbed top of the League after making light work of Kotoko in a 2-0 win to clear the Matchday 24 outstanding match.

The Harbour City boys must come out all guns blazing if they are to carry the day against a WAFA side that knows a slip up might take them off the summit of the league.

Tema Youth will be without the services of their talisman and top scorer Joseph Paintsil who is currently out of the country as well as Wahab Hanan who has joined Tunisian giants Club Africain.

WAFA will also have to make do without Razak Abalora who signed for AZAM FC as well as the likes of Majeed Ashimeru and Emmanuel Boateng. Good display of football is rest assured on Sunday as two possession minded teams will be in action.

A thrilling contest is very much anticipated.
