Bechem United will host Wa All Stars at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park on Sunday with their intention of recovering from last week's thrashing on the road.

The Hunters were handed a 3-0 defeat by league leaders Aduana Stars in a regional derby in the absence of head coach Vincenzo Alberto Anesse.

The Italian gaffer has moved out of Ghana to his native country and is yet to return to take charge.

His deputies Solomon Odwo and Seth Osei Wire will be leading the home side for the second straight time on Sunday.

Joseph Amoah is out of this weekend's game with a slight injury whilst Maxwell Frimpong and Hafiz Wontah expect their debuts.

Amed Simba Toure is expected back into the team for the Northern Blues visit.

Wa All Stars saw their title defence hopes took another twist after failing to take advantage of their home match last last week against struggling Ashanti Gold SC.

The reigning champions were held to a 1-1 stalemate taking their winless streak to four. They are currently lying 10th on the league table.

With a win on Sunday, the Northerners could move to sixth place.

Versatile defender Francis Nicholas Mensah has regained full fitness after a lengthy lay off.

He has been out of action since pre-season.

Captain and right back Hafiz Adams is making a comeback after missing last weekend's fixture.
