Match Preview: WAFA SC vs Medeama- Academy Boys under pressure to win at 'fortress'

WAFA SC will host Medeama SC on Wednesday at the Sogakope park looking to start collecting points again following two consecutive losses to Elmina Sharks FC and Inter Allies FC.

The Academy boys need quick response to their stumble with a victory against the Yellow and Mauves.

They will see their home unbeaten run extended to forty seven matches if they are able to avoid a defeat by Medeama SC in the midweek fixture.

Klavs Rasmussen's boys are expecting the league's best player of the month for March, Aminu Mohammed to recover from a knock to be able to face the Yellow and Mauves.

He couldn't make the journey to Tema last Sunday where they were 1-0 losers to the Eleven Is To One side.

Mohammed has scored in each of their home games this season with both coming from free-kicks.

Forward Daniel Lomotey Agbloe is likely to make comeback for Wednesday's game. He missed last weekend's fixture through an injury.

Medeama SC are traveling to the Volta region for midweek's fixture having at the back of their minds their recent form against the Academy lads at the Sogakope park.

The last two visits to WAFA SC in premiership have all ended in a stalemate.

The Yellow and Mauves had a rest last weekend since Aduana Stars were involved in the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup play-offs.

Enough for them to pounce on their recent dominance against the Academy lads.

Medeama SC have not lost in any of their last five matches in the premier league against WAFA SC.

Trainer Samuel Boadu will have all his players available for the trip since there is no injury concerns at the moment.

Centre back Ibrahim Yaro is coming back to the field for the first time since he was named the best defender in the 2017 FA Cup.
