Liberty Professionals

Liberty Professionals will come face to face with Ebusua Dwarfs with the hope of making it three wins out of three home matches this season. 

A late goal from Hamza Mohammed denied the Scientific Soccer Lads from getting a point at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park last Sunday when they lost 1-0 to Bechem United.

They are desperate to end two matches winless with the Mysterious Club as they welcome experienced Ernest Papa Arko back into the team for Sunday's game. He couldn't travel with team to Bechem last time out.

There are no injury concerns at the moment. Bernard Arthur is looking to extend his goal scoring form at home to four goals.

He has netted thrice in the home games this season.

After defeating their nemesis last Monday, Ebusua Dwarfs wish to make it two wins in a row as they make a trip to a venue they didn't lose last season.

A penalty goal by club's top scorer Nicholas Gyan gave the Crabs all three points.

They need at a least a point to cushion themselves on the log before a long journey to Wa in the midweek.

Brazilian gaffer Ricardo da Rocha will is going into this game with a full strength squad after goalkeeper Frank Andoh returned to the posts last Monday.

Ibrahim Musah had few minutes to make his debut last week against Medeama SC. He is in squad for the visit to Dansoman this weekend.
