Bechem United are desperately in need of all the points at stake on Sunday when they welcome Ashanti Gold SC to the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park. 

Recording a win this weekend mean the Hunters will be shrugging off a relegation threat with a top four finish aspirations possible on the cards.

A lose this weekend can push them to the 13th position with just a point above the danger zone.

A victory on Sunday will also mean Bechem United have gone three consecutive home matches without dropping a single point for the first time this campaign.

They will be missing the services of dependable defender Alfred Nelson who is nursing an injury.

Aside him, all the other players are available for the important fixture.

Ashanti Gold SC are traveling to Bechem with high hopes of picking at least a point as they have done in each of their previous three visits in the premier league.

The Miners are currently out of the relegation zone as they sit 12th on the league table but a defeat this weekend will see them slip into the drop zone once again.

Centre back Samuel Abeiku Ainoonson is expected back in the lineup for Sunday's fixture after serving a suspension in the last league game.

Prince Owusu has recovered from a knock he sustained in their last fixture against WAFA SC. He is available for selection.

Midfielder Appiah McCarthy has also recovered fully from a lengthy lay off due to an injury.
