GPL Match day 5 Preview: Overthrown All Stars eye top spot recapture

Wa All Stars are targeting nothing short of a win when they host New Edubiase in week five of the 2015-16 Ghana Premier League.

The Wa-based outfit surrendered their position at the top of the league table to Hearts of Oak after matchday four’s 1-1 stalemate with Dreams FC, and will hope as much to bounce back in style on Sunday.

Week five of the topflight, however, begins on Friday when a David Duncan-led Asante Kotoko chase their first win of the season in their clash with Sekondi Hasaacas at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

It will be the turn of reigning champions Ashanti Gold to fight for three points on Saturday when they welcome Aduana Stars to the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

At the Tema Sports Stadium on Sunday, leaders Hearts will be in action as guests to Inter Allies. The last league meeting between the two sides ended in a scoreless stalemate.

Bechem United will hope to get back to winning ways after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Phobians when they face newly-promoted Ebusua Dwarfs.

Techiman City tasted defeat at the hands of Liberty Professionals last weekend and they will eye a strong comeback with victory in their home fixture with third-placed Dreams FC. The two teams are part of the three newly-promoted sides in the topflight this season.

Liberty, however, will be at the Sogakope Park where they will battle it out with Wafa. The Scientific Soccer Lads lie fifth on the standings following last weekend’s triumph over Techiman City.

Medeama’s away clash with Berekum Chelsea has been rescheduled due to the former’s Caf Confederations Cup encounter with Libyan side Al-Ittihad Tripoli on Sunday.
