Accra Lions

Accra Lions face a daunting task against Ghana Premier League leaders King Faisal on Thursday, 16 December 2021 in Accra.

The newly-promoted side are chasing a third consecutive home win after putting Bechem United and Eleven Wonders to flight.

Interim head coach James Francis had a baptism of fire on Sunday when his side crushed to a 3-0 defeat at Karela United.

The 39-year-old British coach stepped in for German trainer Rainer Kraft who parted ways with the club last week.

Lions have lost all their four away matches and are yet to pick a point but at home they look like impressive.

They only drew 1-1 with Elmina Sharks- and that was in their first ever top-flight match.

King Faisal are the most in-form side in the league after back-to-back wins against Asante Kotoko and Elmina Sharks sent them to the summit of the log.

Strikers Zubeiru Ibrahim and Ibrahim Osman are been tearing defenders apart this season.

Coach Nurudeen Amadu has been moulding a smash-and-grab side who have the know-how to win on the road.

They hammered Aduana Stars 3-1 in Dormaa Ahenkro on 7 November.
