Ghana Premier League Preview: Elmina Sharks vs Berekum Chelsea- Visitors must prove recent form no fluke

Elmina Sharks

Premiership newbies Elmina Sharks FC will tackle free scoring Berekum Chelsea at the Ndoum Sports Complex on Sunday.

They were so unlucky to lose 1-0 against title favourites Asante Kotoko SC after conceding with the last kick of the game last Sunday at the Baba Yara stadium.

Centre back Kingsley Adjei is expected to stop league top scorer Seth Larbi Appiah from getting a goal in Sunday's encounter.

His performance against Asante Kotoko SC earned him man of the match.

Isaac Mensah could make a return after missing the last two fixtures through an injury.

Edward Ebo Mends remains out with an injury.

If Berekum Chelsea can break their nineteen away winless streak in the league, a lot will hinge on in-form Seth Larbi Appiah.

The attacking midfielder leads the league goal scoring chart with four goals. He has scored in each of the last three games in the league and providing one assist in the last.

The Blues enjoyed a rousing moment last weekend when they thumped giants Ashanti Gold SC 5-1 at the Golden City park.

The biggest scoreline so far in the season.

Enterprising centre back Francis Debrah has fully recovered from an injury which kept him out of action for some weeks now.
