Ghana Premier League Preview: Aduana Stars vs Great Olympics- Fire Boys tipped to revive title bid with win

Aduana Stars

Aduana Stars will be venting their anger on struggling Great Olympics at the Nana Agyemang Badu park this Wednesday as they eye a return to winning ways. 

The Fire Boys are winless in their last three games making their second position on the log shaky.

They suffered a 1-0 defeat against Tema Youth FC last Sunday.

Hearts of Oak will leapfrog them if they fail to take advantage of the home fixture in midweek.

Right back and skipper Godfred Saka is still nursing an injury and is ruled out of this game.

First choice goalkeeper Joseph Addo will miss Wednesday’s fixture since because of an international assignment with the Black Stars.

Sam Adams is expected back in the team for the important game.

Great Olympics will see their woes deepen as they trek to a difficult venue following two straight home losses as their survival bid looks gloomy.

They lost 1-0 to Liberty Professionals in a crunchy regional derby at the Accra sports stadium last weekend which followed a 4-0 home loss a fortnight ago.

The Wonder Club are sitting 15th on the league table and could see the gap between them safety stretched of they lose again.

Midfielder Alhassan Aminu will be making a comeback into the team after missing last Sunday’s game.
