Ghana Premier League Preview: Wa All Stars vs Medeama- Defending champions to continue winning streak
WA All Stars

Wa All Stars have gotten their season back on track following a three match unbeaten streak which has taking them off the drop zone.

They take on Medeama SC at the Malik Jabir park this Sunday.

Interim coach Alhaji Mumuni Sokpari has a good opportunity to make it three premiership victories on the success at home.

The first time the Northern Blues will achieve that this season.

The defending champions are lying 9th on the league table with only four points above the relegation positions.

The Northerners have a fully strength squad ahead of the weekend's fixture with the return of Alex Ofosu Acheampong from injury.

Medeama SC will take some confidence from their last away league match as they make a long journey to the Upper West regional capital for Sunday's game.

They walloped Great Olympics 3-0 at the Accra sports stadium in their last premier league outing.

With their top four ambitions much alive, at least picking a point from Wa this weekend will cushion the Yellow and Mauves.

If they fail to avoid defeat on Sunday, they will move three places down to the 8th on the league table.

They are currently 5th with just a point behind Asante Kotoko SC.

Leading marksman and top scorer Bernard Ofori Danso has signed for Zambian giants Zanaco FC. He is out of this game.

Right back Amos Korankye will be making comeback from a club suspension if he is selected for Sunday's fixture.
