Ghana Premier League Preview: Medeama SC vs Bechem United- Mauves and Yellows need survival-boosting win

The season has not been pretty good for Medeama SC since they are not too far from the relegation zone. 

A win against Bechem United on Saturday at the Tarkwa and Aboso park will move them a step up on the league ladder.

The Yellow and Mauves lost 2-0 to Berekum Chelsea last Sunday so they hope to bounce back from the defeat.

They came from behind to beat Asante Kotoko SC in their last home game.

Joseph Tetteh Zutah is coming back into the squad for Saturday's game.

He has been absent in the last two premier league matches.

Evans Adotey has a full strength side for the first time this season. All players are available for selection.

Bechem United are still hopeful of finishing top four at the end of the first round in the league this term despite their poor form.

The Hunters beat Inter Allies FC 1-0 last weekend at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park to claim their first win in five games.

A victory on Saturday will take Bechem United to 20 points and possibly a fourth place on the league log. They are currently 6th positioned.

Indisposed Asante Agyemang cannot travel to Tarkwa with the team.

The skipper couldn't feature in the last two league fixtures.
