Tomorrow’s game will be the 78th league between the two sides. Pressure is mounting on Coach David Duncan to win his first match of the season. Injury worries have been the bane of the Porcupine warriors, having suffered series of injuries, before and during the start of the season.

Hasaacas have lost their 2 away league games for the season, but their 4 points were secured at home, beating Techiman City and sharing honours with the champions, Ashgold.
