AshantiGold defender Empem Dacosta targets winning the Ghana Premier League this season

AshantiGold defender, Empem Dacosta said the target of the club is to win the ongoing Ghana Premier League, (GPL) title at the of the campaign.

He added that, it would be a great honour to win it in style and dedicate the trophy to the President of the club, Dr. Kwaku Frimpong also known as Champion.

'We will be surprised if we don't win this year's league,' Dacosta told Kumasi-based radio station, Light FM.

The former Karela United and Asante Kotoko player will hope to be part of the Miners squad that travels from Obuasi to Accra this weekend to play Great Olympics as the GPL continues.

'We, the players, are determined to work hard to make sure that this dream becomes a reality when the season is over,' the though-tackling defender made known.

On the upcoming GPL Matchday Eight encounter with Great Olympics, Dacosta acknowledged that, the Wonder Club are playing well at the moment, but, they (AshantiGold) will be going all out to collect the maximum points.

AshantiGold SC are fourth on the table with 12 points from the seven matches they have played, and, could go top of the stairs if they win on Sunday and results elsewhere goes their way this weekend.

To record a win at the Accra Sports Stadium in this fixture, AshantiGold must overcome a Great Olympics side that is unbeaten at home so far and have been one of the most exciting sides to watch.

Olympics, are sixth on the table with 11 points, and, on home soil, they will target the three points which could move them top of the log after these round of matches.

Dacosta, is however unmoved by the expected threat being passed by home side ahead of this game, and insists the three points would be carried to Obuasi after the final whistle has sounded on Sunday as they aim to win their fifth GPL title at the end of the season.
