Match Preview: Wa All Stars vs Inter Allies FC- Bottom club look for a lift against poor travellers
Wa All Stars

Wa All Stars are going to take on poor travellers Inter Allies FC in week 13 of the Ghana Premier League at the Malik Jabir park on Wednesday.

The home side are having severe troubles this season as they are the bottom placed side with just seven points won.

The former champions have booked only one victory throughout the season.

The nearest safe place is five points away from them and they need if they want to avoid relegation troubles this campaign.

The Northern Blues hold all the aces at home to claim all the three points to cushion their fight to avoid the drop at the end of the season.

Failing to record a single win in seven games since joining as head coach, Sarfo Castro has resigned from his post.

Assistant and goalkeeping coach Issah Najahu is expected to lead the Northerners in the midweek against the Eleven Is To One side.

Stalwart defender Issahaku Konda is returning to the squad after leading the Ghana U20 as skipper to progress in the African Youth Championship qualifiers.

Inter Allies FC will try to take advantage of the abysmal form of Wa All Stars to claim their first away point(s) in the premiership this campaign on Wednesday.

The Eleven Is To One outfit have lost all of their six fixtures on the road this season.

They are without a win in their last twenty two away matches in the premier league.

Despite the poor away run, Inter Allies FC are sitting 7th on the league table with 18 points, just five points between them and leaders Medeama SC.

The Capelli Boys could move to the 3rd position on the league log if they are able to beat the Northern Blues in the midweek.

Shot stopper Kwame Baah has recovered from an injury he sustained against Dreams FC few weeks ago and is available for selection for this match.

The return of the goalkeeper has handed Kenichi Yatsuhashi a full strength squad for the trip to the Upper West regional capital, Wa for Wednesday's fixture.
