Berekum Chelsea take on Dreams FC this weekend at the Golden City park, with the Blues trying to bounce back after a controversial defeat on the first week of the season.
The Blues lost 1-0 to Ebusua Dwarfs last Sunday after a dubious penalty awarded against them at the Cape Coast stadium.
The last time they met the top-flight returnees,it was a sweet victory. They walloped the “Still Believe” side by 3-0 at the same venue.
They are undefeated in their last twenty two home matches. Enough booster for the Blues ahead of Sunday’s clash.
Amoako Antwi Kwame and Edmund Arko Mensah awaits their debuts for the Blues. They could be given this weekend if they make match squad.
Two returnees Collins Ameyaw and experienced Bismark Idan could be given a chance to prove their mettle.
Following the success in the G8 pre-season tournament, Dreams FC’s return to the elite division started on a bright note after edging Elmina Sharks FC in the season’s opener.
Zuberu Sharani’s 90th minute strike was all what the newcomers needed to collect their first three points of the season.
In order to record their best ever start to a top-flight campaign, the Believers need to overcome Berekum Chelsea to make it three wins in a row.
The “Still Believe” outfit are sweating on the fitness of James Wiafe, Emmanuel Hayford and George Dwubeng ahead of their trip to Berekum.
Good news is that captain and best player of the G8 pre-season tournament Leonard Owusu could be making a return after missing their first game with a slight injury.
A lot will depend on experienced goalkeeper Isaac Amoako if they are to pick at least a point at the Golden City park.
He was on top of his game in the match day one fixture and was the reason why the away did not score.
