GPL Wk25 Preview: Kotoko, Hearts step up the chase on the league title

Accra, May 19, GNA – The boys are gradually being separated from the men with nine matches to end 2020/21 Ghana Premier League (GPL) season.

Second-placed Accra Hearts of Oak kick start match-week 26 with a trip to Techiman to face an Eleven Wonders side who have not won a game in their last three matches.
Hearts would be looking to continue their unbeaten three-match streak as well as ousting their rivals Asante Kotoko at the top of the table with just two points separating them.

Asante Kotoko who are currently occupying top spot would be searching for the 13th win of the season as they look to extend their lead against West Africa Football Academy (WAFA).

WAFA on their last trip stunned Medeama in Tarkwa and would be looking to do the same against Porcupine Warriors who have the best defence in the league having conceded 13 goals.

Great Olympics would want to avoid a third defeat in a row when they host bottom-placed Inter Allies at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

Inter Allies are currently unbeaten in their last three matches and were the big winners in the last round of matches having put five goals past Berekum Chelsea as the quest to avoid relegation.

Great Olympics have their title dreams gradually slipping away after two successive defeats and would want to get back on track with a win against Inter Allies.

Legon Cities who were recently awarded three points by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have moved out of the relegation zone as they are now placed 13th position with 29 points.

The Royals would be looking to move further away from the drop as they host Aduana Stars, a side who just lost once in their last five matches.

Ebusua Dwarfs on the other hand have moved into the relegation zone after the points deduction and face a stern task when they host relegation-threatened Liberty Professionals.

Medeama would be looking to bounce back to winning ways after losing their last two matches when they host Ashanti Gold at the Akoon Park while Elmina Sharks host King Faisal at the Ndoum Sports Stadium.
