Ghana Premier League Preview: Ebusua Dwarfs vs Hasaacas- Two relegation battlers fight for facelift
Ebusua Dwarfs

Ebusua Dwarfs host fellow relegation battlers Sekondi Hasaacas at the Robert Mensah stadium this Sunday in what could be an enthralling contest

Head coach Prosper Narteh has house full of fully fit players to choose ahead of the week eighteen of the Ghana Premier League.

It gives him a selection headache.

Stalwart defender Musah Mohammed faces stiff competition from Stephen Aidoo to keep his place in the set up as a centre back.

The Crabs won the inaugural regional President's Cup after beating rivals Venomous Vipers 3-0 eight days ago.

Joseph Esso and Agya Fuseini were the scorers.

Sekondi Hasaacas also lost to regional rivals Eleven Wise narrowly a week ago in the President's Cup.

They eye a win in Cape Coast to get them back on track.

But the West Giants will miss the services of midfielder Saliw Babawo in Sunday's match.

He joined the national U20 team to travel to Senegal for the African Youth Championship qualifiers.

All other players are in good shape and fully fit for the big game on Sunday.

Former Ebusua Dwarfs midfielder Ricky Adjei Mensah is expected to start for Hasmal.
