Leaders Aduana dare Kotoko in Kumasi

• Isaac Mintah – Aduana’s lethal finisher

Aduana Stars’ character to main­tain their top spot and possibly win this season’s betPawa Ghana Premier League will be challenged tomorrow when they face off with defending champions Kumasi Asante Kotoko in their crucial Match-Day 27 fixture.

The Baba Yara Sports Stadium will host the two giants as the wounded Porcupine Warriors would be geared up to bounce back to winning ways and maintain pressure on the top-four teams.

After their devastating 3-0 de­feat to Berekum Chelsea in their last game, Kotoko currently sit on fifth po­sition and must secure all three points to close the eight- point gap between leaders Aduana Stars.

Another slip would throw Kotoko’s title ambitions into chaos as other teams including Bechem United, Accra Hearts of Oak and Medeama SC are pushing towards the summit.

The likes of Ibrahim Danlad, Rahid Nortey, Justice Blay, Isaac Oppong and Georges Mfegue must stake a claim on the team and lead the Porcupine War­riors to an important victory against a very resilient Aduana side.

For Aduana, they should be beam­ing with confidence ahead of the encounter following their blistering form this season which has seen their lead marksman – Isaac Mintah, score some great goals.

The leaders also go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory against Accra Great Olympics to secure their top spot.

They would be determined to maintain their incredible form to deepen the woes of Kotoko; though it promises to be a keenly-contested encounter.

Another top-liner for the weekend would be the clash between Bechem United and Hearts at Bechem today.

Following their win over Nsoatre­man, Hearts now occupy the third position on the league table, while Bechem follow with the fourth posi­tion with just a point separating the two sides in the top-four race.

Hearts are determined to secure consecutive wins, while Bechem United would be geared up to secure some points to maintain their posi­tion.

Other games for today would see Kotoku Royals facing off with Real Tamale United (RTU), while Olympics host Tamale City at their new adopted home – the Sogakope Sports Stadium, tomorrow.

At Dawu, Dreams FC will square off with Samartex, while Bibiani Gold Stars welcome Berekum Chelsea to Bibiani for another interesting en­counter.
