The entertaining Ghana Premier League enters it’s third week of action on Wednesday. Midweek matches will be played at the various match venues spread across the country.

At the Golden City park, Berekum Chelsea will play as hosts to Liberty Professionals as they go in search of their first win of the season. The Blues are yet to win a match this season and have just one (1) point from their two matches played so far.

New coach of Berekum Chelsea Steve Pollack will be under a bit of pressure to mastermind their first win of the season against relatively bad travelers Liberty on Wednesday. Liberty grabbed their first win of the season on Sunday with a late pair of goals from Bernard Arthur and Gerald Arkson helping them overcome Inter Allies and will be hoping to build on that performance on Wednesday.

The Berekum Golden City Park has always been a difficult venue for visiting teams of which Liberty themselves are no exception and this will be a motivating factor for the Blues to go all out in search of their first three points of the season. Getting the maximum points on the day will not be an easy achievement for both sides.

The dependable central defensive pair of Nicholas Opoku and Wahab Ahadzi and the other players will hope to impress new coach Steve Pollack from the off and probably give him his first win as well, but this will surely not come on silver platter as Liberty are always a difficult side to play on their good day.

The match promises to be an exciting one of course.
