Ghana Premier League Preview: Aduana Stars vs Liberty Professionals- Title chasing hosts cannot afford to slip up

Aduana Stars

Aduana Stars will have best of opportunities to take charge of the summit of the league log.

The Fire Boys take on a determined Liberty Professionals at the Nana Agyemang Badu park on Sunday as they target back to back home wins.

They managed to beat struggling Great Olympics narrowly in their last league fixture at home.

Winning this weekend will enable the Dormaa side claim the top spot from WAFA SC.

Left back Daniel Darkwah misses the important game since he is out of the country with the Black Stars for an international friendly.

First choice goalie Joseph Addo is available for selection following his return from the USA trip with the national team.

The appointment of Michael Osei as the gaffer of Liberty Professionals has had a great impact in their fight for survival since they are out of the relegation zone.

The Scientific Soccer Lads have not lost in any of their last five matches in the premier league as they travel to a difficult Dormaa ground.

Michael Osei’s technical and tactical prowess will be tested on Sunday.

They will need at least a draw to cushion their quest of maintaining their premiership status.

Failure to do so will be seeing them slip back on the league table to 13th position.

Centre back Samuel Sarfo is back from international assignment with the Black Stars and is line for a return to the match squad for Sunday.
