2019/20 Ghana Premier League: Week 9 Match Preview - AshantiGold SC vs. Liberty Professionals

Published on: 08 February 2020

AshantiGold SC, currently riding a two-game unbeaten streak, will be hoping to extend it on Sunday when they host Liberty Professionals.

The Miners beat Ebusua Dwarfs 1-0 at home last weekend and held Hearts of Oak to a scoreless stalemate on Thursday.

Now levelled on points with Asante Kotoko SC at the 4th position, AshantiGold clinching a win this weekend will move them to the top two places.

At the Len Clay stadium this term, the Gold and Black men have conceded just once leading the only home loss so far.

They have won all of the other three home fixtures without allowing a goal in their net.

Midfielder James Akaminko returns for this match after a one-match suspension against Hearts of Oak last Thursday.

Attacking duo Amos Addai and Mark Agyekum remain out with respective injuries.

Liberty Professionals' scintillating away form this season was highlighted last weekend when they held Asante Kotoko SC to a 1-1 draw.

The Porcupine Warriors needed a goal in the dying embers of the game to cancel the Scientific Soccer Lads' lead.

David Ocloo and his men have beaten WAFA SC and Ebusua Dwarfs at away and have also drawn against Berekum Chelsea and Asante Kotoko SC on the road.

Liberty make the trip to the Len Clay stadium in Obuasi with same mentality and confidence they showcased in all outings this term.

Even though they were beaten 2-1 at home by Dreams FC in the midweek, their away form cannot be overlooked.

Goalkeeper Shaibu Ganiwu won't be available for this match due to an injury he suffered against Asante Kotoko SC last weekend.

Prediction: AshantiGold SC 2-1 Liberty Professionals
