Ebusua Dwarfs

Ebusua Dwarfs are having roller-coaster affair this campaign full of ups and downs even though they are ninth on the league log. 

The Mysterious Club will try to bounce back after a 2-0 loss to Aduana Stars last weekend when they host patchy champions Wa All Stars at the Cape Coast stadium this Sunday.

They are also going into this game with the aim of avoiding a third winless streak at home.

The Crabs have lost one and drawn one of their last two home games.

They will be climbing up to 5th place on the table with a victory on Sunday whilst a defeat see them drop three places to 10th.

First choice goalkeeper Michael Abu is expected back to man the posts this weekend. He has been missing in the last two league fixtures.

Top scorer and skipper Nicholas Gyan is also making return to the squad after missing out last week Sunday.

Wa All Stars have not been much better in their title defence, but they at least managed to interrupt the recent negative streak with back to back wins.

It was the first and second wins for Alhaji Mumuni Sokpari who has been tasked to control affairs as the head coach on interim basis.

His presence at the bench has brought at least some sort of positive vibes as the team beat Liberty Professionals for the first time in five years.

First choice shot stopper and current national number Richard Ofori has joined South African side Maritzburg United ruling him out of this game.

The Northern Blues are sitting 9th on the table and could move into the relegation zone if they lose on Sunday.
