Ghana Premier League Preview: Tema Youth vs Ebusua Dwarfs- Harbours Boys in pole to trap Crabs

Tema Youth

Tema Youth FC continued their recent impressive run of form when they picked a point in their visit to Wa All Stars two weeks ago. 

The Harbour City Boys will be hoping to build on it as they are set to tackle Ebusua Dwarfs at the Tema stadium this Saturday.

They have won two and drawn two in their last four league matches which has seen them move out of the relegation zone.

The recent form was followed by nominations of trainer Edward Nii Odoom and top scorer Joseph Paintsil for the June awards.

A victory on the weekend will take the Tema based side to the 7th position on the league table.

They are currently lying 12th.

Edward Nii Odoom will have a full strength squad at his disposal going into the game since Malik Ismaila Antiri is making a return.

The lanky defender didn’t travel with the team to Wa a fortnight ago.

Ebusua Dwarfs had their top four ambitions dwindled when they lost at home for the first time in the season to Asante Kotoko SC last two weeks.

The home loss sees the Mysterious Club sit 6th on the league log with 27 points.

The Crabs hope of making a swift amends by recording their first away victory of the season in Tema on Saturday.

If the Cape Coast based outfit fails to avoid a defeat this weekend, they will move to the 13th position on the league ladder.

Stephen Nana Bentil is available for selection for Saturday’s fixture after serving a match suspension against Asante Kotoko SC.

The hardworking midfielder was sent off two weeks aback in their 1-1 stalemate with Berekum Chelsea.
