Ghana Premier League Preview: Wa All Stars vs Liberty Professionals- Champions' revival faces Liberty test

Published on: 15 July 2017
Wa All Stars

Wa All Stars managed a highly-important 3-1 home win over second placed Aduana Stars to end the negative run of three consecutive matches without a victory.

The Northern Blues will try to back up the fine display this Sunday when they are about to take on nemesis Liberty Professionals at the Malik Jabir park in week 23 of the premiership.

Despite being on the ninth position on the league table, failure to avoid defeat will push the defending league champions into the drop zone.

Still waiting for a substantive head coach to be appointed, Alhaji Mumuni Sokpari will guide the team on weekend.

Alex Ofosu Acheampong is ruled out of Sunday's fixture but will be available for the next league game.

Liberty Professionals hope to capitalize on their four years dominance over Wa All Stars to prevent a third straight loss in league on Sunday at Wa.

The Scientific Soccer Lads last defeat to the Northerners in a league game is dated back in 2012.

After five matches unbeaten run, they have suffered back to back losses with the latest being last Wednesday's 0-1 defeat to Elmina Sharks FC.

With just a point ahead of the relegation zone, a lose on Sunday will see them move straight to the bottom three.

Something that is very unhealthy for the Dansoman based side.

Michael Osei has a full strength squad to make the trip to the Upper West regional capital.
