Match Preview: WAFA SC vs AshantiGold- Shrivelled Academy Boys in tight corner to trap leaders

WAFA SC have had their 46 home unbeaten streak halted after over three years last Wednesday when they lost 2-1 to Medeama SC.

The Academy Boys hope to start a new record at the Sogakope park when host table toppers Ashanti Gold SC on Wednesday.

The hosts are desperately in need of all the three points to turn things around as their campaign has taken a huge nose dive after losing four matches on the bounce.

The Team Young are currently lying in the relegation zone despite going unbeaten in their first three games in the season.

Klavs Rasmussen's boys will be welcoming back player of the month of March, Aminu Mohammed to their set up for Wednesday's crucial encounter.

He missed the trip to Techiman last Sunday with a slight injury.

Abukari Ibrahim and Daniel Lomotey are still nursing their injuries. They are out of the fixture in the midweek.

Ashanti Gold SC had their position at the top of the log threatened in the weekend when a win by Medeama SC got them levelled on points with the Elephants.

The Elephants remain top of the log with goals difference.

They had a rest last weekend because their opponents Aduana Stars were to travel on Sunday evening to Madagascar for a second leg CAF Confederation Cup play-off tie.

The Gold and Blacks suffered a setback last Wednesday to end their unbeaten run when they succumbed to Liberty Professionals with a 1-0 loss.

They conceded very late in the game to hand all the three points to the Dansoman side.

Charles Kwablan Akonnor has almost a full strength squad for the journey to the Volta region.

Centre back Mubarik Yusif is the only player out with an injury.
