Match Preview: Medeama seek redemption against AshGold

Medeama will hope to recover from recent setbacks when they host Ashantigold in a crunch Ghana Premier League fixture on Sunday.

The Mauve and Yellows dropped to fifth on the table after picking just a point from their last matches.

The two-time FA Cup champions lost 2-0 at Aduana Stars last weekend which followed their 2-1 defeat at home to West African Football Academy.

They managed to just sniff a point off Liberty Professionals – which has seen the side dropped to 5th on the table.

Medeama are now five points adrift of leaders Asante Kotoko and three behind second-placed Hearts of Oak going into the remaining nine matches.

Coach Yaw Preko is beginning to feel the heat with the side’s Premier League title aspirations slipping through their hands.

Recovery is needed and fast as they host the miners at the Akoon Park.

Striker Amed Toure could be available for selection after returning to training following a slight injury.

He missed the side’s defeat at Dorma Ahenkro but could get his chance against the miners at the Akoon Park.

AshGold ended a poor run of form to beat Great Olympics 1-0 last weekend.

Prior to that the Miners has gone three matches without a win, losing two and drawing one.

Midfielder David Abagna Sandan has found the back of the net in the last two home games. He is expected to inspire his side again this Sunday.

The Gold and Black outfit will continue without a head coach as assistant Thomas Duah leads them for a fifth time against Medeama
