Spread the love

High Flying Miners set to continue good form against the resurging Sharks.

The action in the Ghana Premier league continues this weekend as it enters its match day 23. The league is getting more competitive and keener as it enters its last phase.

At the Obuasi Len Clay stadium, in form Ashantigold SC will square off with league debutants Elmina Sharks on Sunday.

Both sides picked up important away wins in midweek as Ashantigold went far away Tamale to beat Bolga All Stars by two goals to nil.

Sharks also recorded a win against Liberty at Dansoman. Coach C.K.Akunnor is doing some magic with the Obuasi based side as they have been the best team by far in the second round of the league.

Ashgold are yet to taste defeat in this second round and are gradually climbing up on the league table. Sharks will have to be at their outmost best if they are to leave Obuasi with something, but Yaw Acheampong are not short on confidence coming into this match after recording back to back wins in their last two matches.

The tactical and technical prowess will be on showcase as Akunnor comes up with Acheampong in the battle to move clear of the relegation zone.

Ashgold can recall Theophilus Nyame back in the starting line up as he missed their game against Bolga All Stars due to accumulation of yellow cards and same can be said for Emmanuel Osei Baffour who completely missed out on that match day squad.

Robert Dabou is still out with a long term injury. Sharks have a full house to select from coming into this crunch encounter. The Len Clay stadium will be the venue of attraction come Sunday.
