Liberty Professionals hold their own destiny when they host Ashanti Gold SC at the Carl Reindorf park on Sunday in their quest of avoiding the drop.
The Scientific Soccer Lads are currently lying in the danger zone after stumbling in three matches on the trot including a home loss.
The hopes of survival will be hugely dented if they fail to make good use of Sunday's fixture at Dansoman.
A victory will also mean they will move from their current 14th position to the 12th on the league table.
The hosts were 5-1 winners last season against the same opposition at the same venue.
Top striker Bernard Kwame Arthur will be available for selection on Sunday after missing the journey to Wa All Stars last weekend.
Ashanti Gold SC's reinvigoration in the second round of the season was put on the brakes when they lost at home to Elmina Sharks FC last Sunday.
The defeat followed an 100% run of five straight wins without conceding.
This has seen the Miners drop to 13th place with only two points above the relegation zone with a game in hand.
They will be seeking for a rapid bounce since a another lose in this weekend's fixture will sink them into the relegation zone.
Amos Addai is likely to miss Sunday's game since he has not recovered from an injury he sustained last weekend.
Richard Ocran is expected to be fit to make the match squad for Sunday.
