Ghana's No. 1

2022/23 Ghana Premier League: Week 19 Match Preview - Berekum Chelsea vs. FC Samartex

Published on: 28 February 2023

Berekum Chelsea will have the chance to record back-to-back wins for the very first time in the Ghana Premier League this season when they welcome FC Samartex on matchday 19 on Wednesday.

The Bibires claimed their first away victory of the season when they pipped King Faisal Babes in Kumasi in the last league game to begin their second round on a good note.

Chelsea are hoping to count on their recent home form to see off Samartex at Golden City Park in Berekum. They have four wins and a draw in the last five home games.

Mezack Afriyie and Kusi Pandrous have combined to score 6 goals in the last 7 league games for Chelsea. They are expected to lead them against the Timber Boys in the midweek fixture.

Afriyie leads the scoring chart with 9 goals in 17 appearances.

Samartex suffered a blip in their recent form over the weekend they were beaten 2-1 by Real Tamale United in the FA Cup at the Aliu Mahama Stadium last Sunday.

The Timbers had recorded two victories on the bounce in the league including a 3-0 emphatic win over last Sunday's opposition in Samreboi.

Samartex make the trip to Berekum in search of a third successive win in the Ghana Premier League for the first time this campaign.

The newly-promoted side are currently sitting in the 9th place on the league standings with 26 points. A win on Wednesday could see them move into the top four places.
