Ghana Premier League Preview: Aduana Stars vs Medeama- Leaders tipped to deepen Mauves woes

Aduana Stars

Aduana Stars return to Dormaa to tighten their grips as leaders when they host Medeama in Wednesday's tantalizing fixture. 

The Fire Boys extended their lead at the top to two points after Asante Kotoko SC failed to win their game against Bolga All Stars last Sunday and they won 2-1 at Inter Allies.

A win or draw on Wednesday will still see them top of the summit. Derrick Sassraku has been involved in four of the seven goals they have scored at home this term.

He is likely to start against the Yellow and Mauves.

Yusif Abubakar has all his players available for selection in the midweek. Joseph Addo returned to the team in the last league game.

Medeama SC saw their problem move from bad to worse when they suffered a 1-0 home loss to reigning champions Wa All Stars last Sunday in Tarkwa.

They travel to Dormaa with making amends at the back of their minds. Since match day one, the Yellow and Mauves are yet to win a game in the league.

Amos Korankye is expected back in the team for the visit to league leaders Aduana Stars. He was missing in the 1-0 home loss to Wa All Stars last Sunday.

Latif Salifu awaits first bow of the season. He received his ITC last week.  Bennett Ofori is still out with an injury. Godfred Nyarko likely to keep his place in the starting lineup after his impressive display last Sunday.
