Match day two kicks off on Friday when Ebusua Dwarfs visits New Edubiase at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi. Both sides will be eying a first win after falling to Dreams and Hearts of Oak respectively on matchday one.
The other match to be played on Friday will be at the Sekondi-Essipong Sports Stadium where Hasaacas welcome new boys Techiman City, a side which shocked Berekum Chelsea to a 1-0 home triumph last weekend. Yusif Basigi’s men, on the hand, come into the game as wounded lions following matchday one’s 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Wa All Stars.
Premier league giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko will not have the opportunity to make quick amends for their defeat to WAFA at Sogakope in the premier league opener. Their opponent Ashanti Gold will instead be engaged with Algerian side MO Bejaia in the Caf Champions League on Sunday, forcing their match to be postponed to March 9.
Elsewhere, Kenichi Yatsuhashi would be facing one of the toughest opponent in the premier league in matchday two as Hearts of Oak play Medeama at TNA Park in Tarkwa. The Phobians will have to do without Samudeen Ibrahim, as he battles with fitness. Medeama on the other hand will be on a search for their first win, having lost to Ashanti Gold in matchday one. The last time the two met at the same venue ended in a scoreless stalemate.
Meanwhile, newly-promoted side Dreams FC will hope to continue their fine form in matchday two having recorded a 1-0 win over Dwarfs last weekend. Making it two wins out of two is something Dreams coach CK Akonnor is hoping for, but there is a mountain to climb at Bechem, a side which has also been in an explosive form beating Liberty Professional 2-0 on matchday one.
At the Golden City Park, Berekum Chelsea will hope to get back to winning ways following last weekend’s loss to Techiman City as the face in-form WAFA, a side which come into the game with high spirits having defeated Kotoko 2-0 last Sunday. Also, the last time the two met, John Killa’s Academy boys emerged 2-1 victors.
2009-10 champions Aduana Stars will host Wa All Stars at the Dormaa Park. The latter recorder the highest recorded the highest score-line of matchday one – a 3-0 win over Hasaacas – while the former suffered a 2-0 humbling at the hands of Inter Allies.
Tema-based Inter Allies will be guests to the Scientific Soccer Lads, Liberty Professionals at the Carl Reindorf Park. Coach George Lamptey’s outfit will be on search for their first win, having lost to Bechem United last weekend.
