By Kojo Owusu Okyere and Edmund Bobie


Kumasi Asante Kotoko will welcome Amidaus Professionals to the Baba Yara Stadium in tomorrows encounter. Asante Kotoko, the most in-form team in the league are without a loss in their last six games and have an impeccable home record; they have won all eight of their home games and will be hoping to continue the trend on Wednesday.

Amidaus will attempt avenging their painful 0-1 loss suffered at the hands of the champions, Asante Kotoko in the corresponding fixture,fans should expect a frenetic clash on Wednesday.

Inter-Allies kick off Wednesday's round of games welcoming the league’s most worst away side King Faisal to the Tema Park. The Kumasi based side have managed just a point away from home in the campaign. Inter Allies are not in the best of form themselves having lost three in the last five matches, they are still languishing at the bottom of the table.

With 13 games to go, Inter Allies will attempt a win to enhance their survival in the top flight.

All eyes will be at the Accra Sports Stadium where Accra Hearts of Oak will be hosting Ebusua Dwarfs,a venue where Dwarfs do not have the best of records.

Hearts aren't particularly strong at home either and are without a win in their last five games.  They have a tough task on their hands against a wounded Dwarfs side.

After an impressive 1-0 win away at Aduana, Hearts of Oak will fight for a win to keep their title challenge on track. Dwarfs are without a win in their last six games, a performance which keeps them drifting closer and closer to the drop zone.

Edubiase picked their first back to back victory in the league and will be hoping to build on that when they host Medeama SC at the Gyamfi Park. Medeama have come under criticism for failing to win in their last five games at the Gyamfi's Park.

Aduana, whose fine run came to an end with back to back losses against Hearts and Edubiase will be travelling up North to lock horns with inform Wa All Stars at the Wa Park.

This mid-week most anticipated game pits second from bottom FC Berekum up against high-flying Heart of Lions at the Golden City Park. FC Berekum who are at risk of getting cut off at the foot of the table have shown signs of life recently having picked up four points from their last two games (with one game at hand).

Lions have done well so far and are sitting comfy in third place with a realistic chance of qualifying for African next season.

Ashantigold's dreams of a top 4 finish keep fading further and further away with each passing game. The Obuasi based club have dropped into fourth place and  have not recorded a win in their last four games, they travel to the Sekondi Stadium to face the “doo boys”, Hasaacas.

Liberty Professionals have a tough task on their hands as they host Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium. Expect Bechem to take advantage of the game after their recent victory over Ashantigold. With a player like Augustine Ocran fans should anticipate a delightful game.

Liberty will be looking to get a good result from the fixture to increase their point haul.
