After the disappointing display against Real Tamale United at the Aliu Mahama Stadium last Sunday, the Premier League leaders, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, will seek to bounce back from their 1-2 defeat when they host Legon Cities in a 26th week fixture at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday.

Kotoko are still eight points clear of their closest challenger, Bechem United, but face a dicey duel against Legon Cities who dismissed helpless Medeama SC 3-1 in Accra last Sunday.

On Saturday, Hearts of Oak will clash with city rivals, Accra Lions, who beat King Faisal 1-0 away, at the Accra Stadium with the hope of claiming the three maximum points to close in on Kotoko, while second-placed Bechem United engage visiting Karela United at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park on Sunday.

At Dawu on Sunday, Dreams FC will host fast-sinking King Faisal, while Techiman Eleven Wonders trek to the Bibiani Dun's Park to face Goldstars.
