Liberty Professionals

Liberty Professionals go their campaign back to life after recording their first win of the season over the weekend with a 2-0 scoreline to see off newcomers Eleven Wonders FC.

They intend making it two straight victories to get out of the bottom place on the league log.

This won't be coming easily when they host leaders Ashanti Gold SC who remain the only unbeaten side in the premiership this term on Wednesday at the Carl Reindorf park.

The Scientific Soccer Lads will be searching for their first home win with the visit of the Elephants.

It will also be a first victory at Dansoman for Reginald Asante Boateng since he took over the reigns as the head coach

A 2-1 pre-season victory over the four time champions gives the hosts enough confidence to beat them in the midweek.

Emmanuel Addo is the only player on the injury list. All the others are available for selection for the crunchy game.

Ashanti Gold SC had their lead at the top of the league table widen up by four points and undefeated streak also extended to five matches following a derby win last weekend.

Two goals within two minutes in the second half were enough for the Elephants to beat Asante Kotoko SC in a crucial Ashanti Derby last Sunday.

The Miners hope to pounce on their recent form at the Carl Reindorf park to beat Liberty Professionals on Wednesday.

In their last five visits to Dansoman, Ashanti Gold SC have two wins, one draw and two defeats.

Charles Kwablan Akonnor has been named the best coach of the premier league for the month of March.

This is will serve as an encouragement for him ahead of the game in the capital.

James Akaminko has shrugged off a knock he suffered on Sunday against the Porcupine Warriors to be fit for the match in the midweek.

Left back Roland Amouzou didn't travel with the team to the Greater Accra region. He is out of the game.
