Aduana Stars look to have finally managed to find the way out of the crisis by snatching back-to-back wins in the league and CAF Confederation Cup respectively.

The winning thread has seen the Fire Boys score twelve goals in two just two games conceding only once.

It is another huge test on Wednesday afternoon when they take on debutants Eleven Wonders FC at the Nana Agyemang Badu stadium in a regional derby.

There is nothing more inspiring than securing an advantage in an African club competition play-off with a 6-1 emphatic win last Sunday over Madagascar side Fosa Juniors.

The champions will be without striker Derrick Sasraku who is still in the treatment room.

Left back Justice Anane is a huge doubt for this game due to an injury he sustained in the continental fixture last weekend.

Eleven Wonders FC have their fine start of a debut top-flight campaign hit a snag following losses in their last two premiership games.

A 1-0 narrow defeat to Asante Kotoko SC a fortnight ago in Kumasi and a 2-0 home loss to Liberty Professionals at the Len Clay stadium.

A live TV broadcast of their fixture last Sunday aided the change of their home grounds from Techiman to Obuasi.

The newcomers had gone unbeaten in their first three matches in the premier league, a great beginning in a maiden elite division season.

Wonders eliminated the Fire Boys from the FA Cup round of 64 last year with a 2-0 win.

They are counting on this to upset the title holders on Wednesday.

Abdul Mumuni Gammel has almost all his players available for the derby after the return of captain Prince Gyan, Francis Larbi and Isaac Baah to full fitness.
