GPL Preview: Wafa vs Techiman City – Academy Boys hosts debutants at Sogakope

West African Football Academy face a stern test when they play improving Techiman City FC at the Sogakope Park on Sunday.

This marks a thirteenth week fixture of the 2015/2016 season.

The Academy side defied odds to hold Wa All Stars to a 1-1 draw thanks to a league debut goal from newly signed Togolese attacker Komlan Agbegniandan.

Komlan will make a home debut on Sunday for the Academy lads if selected by the Dutch trainer John Kila.

Charles Boateng is away with the Ghana U20 team in Ethiopia for an international assignment this weekend whereas Majeed Ashimeru won’t be available for selection because he is nursing a knee injury.

Techiman City FC were idle in the midweek since their league game against Medeama SC was postponed due to their opponents’ participation in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Hardworking midfielder Yusif Husein could retain his place in the starting line-up of the premiership newbies after emerging man of the match weeks ago against Wa All Stars.

Yusif Abubakar face a selection dilemma since he has a full strength side ahead of Sunday’s visit to the Volta region.
