Oly aim to upset Aduana Stars

League leaders Aduana Stars will look to stretch their lead on the betPawa Premier League log when they lock horns with Accra Great Olympics at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in Abrankese, today.

Aduana Stars was moved to the venue due to a temporary ban from their home ground following an inci­dent that saw Tamale City players and officials attacked after their match­day 25 game.

Focused on winning the league diadem for the third time in the club’s history, Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin believes the dream was on course, although they are playing away from their favourite grounds.

However, they would have it tough considering Olympics’ resolve to salvage at least a point to boost their battle for survival.

It will be a nervy battle at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium today when new boys Tamale City play host to second-placed Bechem United.

Tamale City is currently engaged in a relegation dogfight with Kotoku Royals, Legon Cities, Great Olympics, and Dreams FC and would need all the points available to move off the drop zone.

Having suffered defeat in their last game against the Aduana Stars, with some players also suffering injuries from the attack that followed, City will bang their hopes on home support to spur them on to victory.

For the visitors, having drawn 0-0 with the same side back in Bechem in December, this game presents an opportunity to further their title aspi­rations by grabbing all three points to close the gap on Aduana.

Tomorrow, the environs of Tarkwa and beyond will come to a standstill when Karela United ‘jets’ into town to face-off with Medeama SC at Akoon Park.

Games between the two neigh­bours have left fans asking for more, and this duel will be no exception.

Medeama is on a good run of form at home; that run has seen them dispatch the likes of Samartex 1996, Legon Cities, Berekum Chelsea, Great Olympics, and lately Bibiani Gold Stars.

However, Head Coach Shaibu Tanko of Karela United believes his side would not be added to the casualties.

Steadily rising on the log, King Faisal would be at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex to host Dreams FC.

In other games, relegation-threat­ened Legon Cities will be looking to snatch all three points off visiting Kotoku Royals when they clash at the El Wak Stadium.

At the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadi­um, Real Tamale United will look to lift themselves out of the 12th posi­tion when they welcome Gold Stars.

Elsewhere, Samartex 1996 will be at home at the Nsenkyire Sports Com­plex to face Accra Lions, while Accra Hearts of Oak host new boys Nsoatre­man FC under the floodlights at the Accra Sports Stadium.
