This is exactly where the Toms would want to be after they were kicked out at the one-eighth stage of the Primetime program in 2019 by city rivals, Achimota School.
With the Greater Accra regional championship drawing near, the Cantonments-based school would hope to get an act of early revenge on the hosts.
These are all part of the build-up to the national competition, which comes off in May at the University of Ghana campus in Legon.
