AshantiGold face another cagey duel to overturn their patchy season around as they welcome Medeama SC to the Len Clay stadium on Wednesday

The Elephants failed to hold on to an early lead last Saturday in the FA Cup against division one side Asokwa Deportivo.

They were ejected from the competition through penalties.

It is the first home game for new gaffer CK Akonnor. His first two games in charge have been at away.

He hopes to register his first win as the head coach this Wednesday.

Prince Owusu was handed his debut since joining the club last Saturday in the FA Cup.

He could make his premiership bow against the Yellow and Mauves if selected in the midweek.

Roland Amouzou is fit for the important game.

Medeama SC are seeking to climb up the league ladder by taking advantage of the abysmal performances of the Mining club on Wednesday.

The Yellow and Mauves made a steady progress on the league table after winning two of their last three league matches.

They are currently 11th positioned.

On Sunday, they advanced to the next stage of the MTN FA Cup by managing 7-6 penalties win after being held by first division side Fijai Real United.

Shot stopper Yaw Ansah Fufuro was the hero of the day with with two saves during the shootouts.

That was his second start of the season. He is likely to maintain his place on Wednesday against Ashanti Gold SC.
