Medeama’s lead faces Amidaus’s check
Medeama’s quest for the league diadem comes under scrutiny again, this time against Amidaus Professional on Wednesday at the Tema Park.
The Tarkwa lads have a three-point lead at the summit and cannot afford to slip against the debutants, who have been impregnable at their favourite grounds in one of the key matches of Week 23.
Fresh from their painful lone goal loss to Hearts of Oak at the weekend, Amidaus, are in no mood for yet another slip, that could plunge them off their pedal. Coach Tony Lokko will be hoping leading marksman, Yahaya Mohamed breaks his goal duck after drawing blank in their last six games.
Medeama have their own problems with the inconsistencies in recent matches, and will be looking to rewrite the books as far as Tema is concerned after a 0-4 loss to Tema Youth at the same venue exactly two months ago.
With relegation hanging around their neck, Tema Youth will be lucky to survive at the Baba Yara Stadium against Asante Kotoko. On current form, the latter are ahead of their guests and highly favoured to scoop the maximum points despite their recent spate of troubles. The presence of the five players from the Black Satellites squad has yet to reflect that much on the output of Tema Youth, bagging just four points of a possible 12 in their last four games.
Liberty Professionals will host Hearts of Oak in an Accra derby, which could go either side. Hearts, arguably the most improved team of the second round will no doubt face a tough customer in Liberty. The Phobians were 2-0 victors in the reverse fixture and can wrap up the maximum points with the recent performances of the two teams as the measuring rule.
AshantiGold have an opportunity for their second successive victory at the Len Clay against struggling Berekum Arsenals whilst All Stars and King Faisal battle it out at the Wa Park.
