Published on: 01 July 2011

Ghana champions Berekum Chelsea are seeking to complete a hat-trick of straight victories over giants Kotoko when the two sides clash in the President’s Cup  on Friday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Blues completed a double over the Porcupine Warriors in the Premier League in the just ended season.

They beat the former African champions 3-2 at the Baba Yara Stadium and 1-0 at the Golden City Park and are looking forward to confirm their superiority over the Kumasi-based giants.

Orlando Wellington, head coach of Berekum Chelsea, says they are fired up to to finish off the Porcupine Warriors even though their opponents will come out fighting.

“We have been training feverishly for the encounter and I can say we are ready,” Wellington said.

“We are targeting the trophy to appease our fans after the FA Cup slip. We are focused on winning.”

The one-off match is being organized by the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) to commemorate the nation’s 51st anniversary of attaining Republican status.

The match is also to honour President John Evans Atta Mills on his achievement.

    The only area we are better than the Nigerians is in SHOE SHINNING. That’s why they drove us away from their country decades ago, so we don’t steal all the SHOE SHINNING jobs in Nigeria. I suggest FIFA and CAF creates shoe shinning Championship. We’re sure we’ll win the championship every time. Again, I predict Nigeria winning by 4 goals to 1. Correct me if I’m wrong. Even our Kenkey and pepperish soup can’t be compared to Eba and egunsi. OR POUNDED YAM and AMALA

    Hey Concern what? you could not even spelt Ghanaian correctly which shows that you are not a Ghanaian but a Nigerian and you are just to cause confusion. I have read your comments all over and i have noticed that you are an intruder from Nigeria. Ghanaians are a well cultured and are therefore circumspect in all their deliberations but not like you guys who can even deviate from the main subject. You Nigerian guys are here just cause cofusion because of the second leg match between Meteors and the your Dream Team V..Your dreams will be shattered and it will become a nightmare after the second leg match in Kumasi because the Meteors will qualify for the all African games.
