Premier League

Today’s Matches Give Hope For Teams To Rise Or Fall On The League Table [Analysis]

Teams battling for survival in the Ghana Premier League will give out their best in today’s games. They will fight tooth and nail as they have points to pick. 

After losing to Asante Kotoko yesterday, Legon Cities are back to the relegation enclave. Before the game, coach Bashir Hayford and his players were expected to grab all maximum points and move ahead of the drop zone, but that did not see the light of the day. Even though Black Stars general captain Asamoah Gyan was introduced into the game, his presence could not propel his side to success. The defeat has complicated their efforts to stay out of demotion, and the remaining matches scheduled for today could rub salt in the wound. 

King Faisal play Karela United at home, a game that will give all that is needed in association game. King Faisal - with an avowed intent of moving away for the danger zone - will go into the game for all that is at stake. A win over Karela United puts Alhaji Gruzah’s men ahead of Legon Cities. King Faisal, from the blast of the whistle, will deploy all strategies for victory. As determined as they will be, win tilts towards them. 

Liberty Professionals play guest to Accra Great Olympics in Accra. The position of the Dansoman-based side makes it extremely impossible to settle for a lose. They could take advantage of the venue and see them off unscathed. A Great Olympics defeat could also derail and rule out their title hopes. Coach Andy Sinason is looking ahead to guard his impressive stewardship at Liberty Professionals. A win for Liberty Professionals takes them to 27 points, a step farther from a worried situation. Is a battle that will easily be dominated by a better side. 

Eleven Wonders victory against Aduana Stars traced a bold mark for them, as they aspire for safety on the league log. They have promised not to veer off, utilize any opportunity that comes their way in a game and enjoy another Premier League action, next season. 

Per points build at the tail end of the league ladder, Legon Cities can only count on defeat to fellow strugglers to be able to take a breath sigh of relief.
