Medeama to smoke out Chelsea?

BY: Enoch Darfah Frimpong

The Tarkwa T&A park is the biggest attraction this weekend as  league title aspirants, Berekum Chelsea, dare league leaders Medeama F/C A at their stronghold  in  an anticipated thrilling MTN FA Cup round of  16 encounter Sunday.

Both teams are seriously poised for a title this season and their respective positions on the Glo Premier League ladder is a testament to their ambitions.

But it is Chelsea who will have their back against the wall as the T&A park is always a difficult terrain for the most formidable opposition and the Tarkwa lads will want to maintain that home invicibility.

The Tarkwa-based club did well to eliminate  Wa All Stars away from home and are expected to maintain their steam, particularly before their home fans.

The truth however, is  that feat was spearheaded by their former coach, Bashir Hayford, whose romance with them is now history, and stop gap coach Evans Adotey, has a huge task to justify the confidence reposed in him.

Berekum Chelsea’s  opposition cannot be easily dismissed no matter the venue because in Bismark Idan, Jordan Opoku, Edward Kpodo, Owusu Jackson and Abdul Bassit they boast a strong force capable of causing an upset tomorrow.

Another hot spot is the Tema park where Tema Youth host Aduana Stars tomorrow in the other all-premiership clash.

Accra Hearts of Oak welcome division one side, Starke FC, to the Accra Sports Stadium in a game that should give Coach David Duncan another moment to celebrate Hearts’ return to form, while Division One side, Gold Stars, welcome premiership opponents Ashantigold to Bibiani, both on Sunday.

On Monday, Eleven Wise take on Nania FC at the Sekondi Gyandu Park, while sensational premiership debutants Amidaus Professionals play Guan United on Tuesday.

Champion club Kumasi Asante Kotoko, who ditched Agbozome Weavers last Wednesday, take on surprise package Rainbow FC next Wednesday.
