Ghana Premier League Preview: Techiman City vrs  WAFA SC- Home team hold advantage

Techiman City FC come face to face with West African Football Academy at their fortress Ameyaw Park on Sunday.

The Citizens succumbed to a penalty shootouts loss to regional rivals Berekum Chelsea in the President's Cup last Friday following a 2-0 defeat in their last league game.

They are very optimistic of making good use of their home form to beat WAFA SC.

Yusif Hussein has not recovered yet from his head injury sustained a fortnight ago against Asante Kotoko.

Bright Nsiah is back in the team after missing previous three games.

New signings Mohammed Basha and Clement Boahen have made the squad for Sunday's match and are in contention for their debuts.

West African Football Academy are coming from a shock they suffered against second tier side Hearts of Lions in the President's Cup days ago.

They lost 0-1 at home to their regional rivals.

Majeed Ashimeru is still nursing a knee injury which rules him out of the game on Sunday.

The Academy side are missing winger Charles Boateng since he is away with the national U20 team in Senegal for a qualifier.

New recruits Richard Lartey and Elvis Amoh are expected to make their debuts for WAFA
