Ghana Premier League Preview: AshantiGold vs Berekum Chelsea- Miners return to base for the points

AshantiGold will try to redeem themselves from last Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Bechem when they play as hosts to Berekum Chelsea at the Len Clay stadium on Wednesday

They have lost three of their last four league matches and another could see them move downwards on the league table to the danger zone.

Just two points are separating them and the relegation zone as they sit on the 13th position on the league table.

The Miners are desperately in need of all the three points on Wednesday to cushion them in their survival pursuit.

A victory over the Blues could also prove very vital because it will push them three places up on the league ladder to the 10th position.

Centre back Sammed Ibrahim is very doubtful for the important fixture after suffering a serious injury on the weekend.

Winger Prince Owusu will also miss Wednesday's encounter through an injury he sustained at training.

Berekum Chelsea broke their two year duck at away with a 4-0 emphatic win against Bolga All Stars in Tamale last month.

They are eager to make it back to back away victories for the first time since 2011 which saw them clinch the ultimate at the end of the season.

A win over Ashanti Gold SC at Obuasi in midweek will be their first ever in the league and also mean they will be levelled on points with 4th placed Asante Kotoko SC.

Randolph Armah is travelling to Obuasi with a fully strength squad at his disposal with Francis Debrah and Abdul Ganiu Haruna expected to make a return.

The duo didn't feature for the Blues last Sunday.
