Preview: Kotoko face tricky test in Wa

As the festive season approaches, the weekend’s match-day-12 games in the Glo Premier League throws up some interesting pairings.

The action starts on Saturday at the Bechem Park where relegation threatened sides, Bechem United and Berekum Arsenals clash in a 3:00pm kick off live on Metro TV.

With a three-point lead to their name, Asante Kotoko travel to Wa to face a youthful and impressive All Stars side.

The game would see Kotoko coach, Maxwell Konadu return to the grounds where he started his trade as he meets the Blues and former boss Nuru Ahmed for the first time since he left down south to Kumasi.

It has been a good few weeks for both clubs who have chalked some impressive results lately. Kotoko are favourites to pick all three points but the Blues can make a statement on Sunday.

The Tema Park will host another big game when second-placed Accra Hearts of Oak visits a resurgent Tema Youth side.

Tema Youth’s great run of three straight wins was halted last weekend when they drew at 2-2 away to Mighty Jets. But the Tema side would want to re-kick their fine run beginning with the visit of the Phobians.

Ebusua Dwarfs will attempt to get back on track when they travel to the Agyemang Badu Park to face Aduana Stars.

Following their loss to Kotoko, Berekum Chelsea have an opportunity to put their act together when they welcome Heart of Lions to the Golden City Park.

The league’s top scorer, Emmanuel Baffour would celebrate his call up into the Ghana senior national team, the Black Stars for the 2012 African Nations Cup, when he leads New Edubiase to the Carl Reindorf Park to play Liberty Professionals.

At the Sekondi Stadium, Medeama will host bottom side, Wassaman in a local derby live on Metro TV at 3:00pm.

AshantiGold will try to put behind them their recent struggles when they play Mighty Jets at the Len Clay Stadium.
