An uncompromising encounter is expected on Monday when Police Ladies and Hasaacas Ladies clash at the  Military Academy Training School (MATS) Park at Teshie in the first leg of their quarter-finals clash in the Women’s Special Competition.

The match, which was to have been played on Sunday, was rescheduled as the pitch was unavailable as Accra Great Olympics had a home game at the same pitch.

The postponement will, however, not affect the determination of the two sides as they search for places among the final four of the competition being organised by the Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

It has been intense rivalry between the two sides and that is expected to play out in today’s game.

Police, who come into this game as winners of Group D, look the better side and at their favourite home will seek to claim all three points.

During their group campaign, Police Ladies lost just a match from the six games played, winning the other six with 11 goals.

Hasaacas on the other hand have been making steady progress since the competition began and will seek to maintain that form by at least returning to their Sekondi base with a draw.

The former NWL champions finished as runners-up from Group C, recovering to snatch the spot after a rather disappointing start to the group campaign, during which they won two games, drew two and lost two games.

Coach Yusif Basigi’s ladies scored six goals and conceded eight, but with the likes of Linda Eshun and Janet Egyir back, their quarter-final campaign will be a different story.
