Team news and match facts

Medeama

The Yellow and Mauves outfit have had a poor start to the season, having secured a point in three games, lost to Ashgold and Hearts of Oak, before earning a 2-2 draw against Kotoko.

Medeama is one of the teams that maintained a core of their players who were instrumental to their FA Cup title chase: The likes of Kwakwa, Malik Akowuah, Muntari Tagoe, Kwesi Donsu, Paul Aidoo, Benjamin Bature are still there.

The Tarkwa lads are entering into this game after brushing aside, the Libyan giants, Ittihad Tripoli from the CAF Confederations Cup, when they overturned a 0-1 first leg deficit with a 2-0 win last week Sunday.

Medeama have had a poor start to the league though, their win against Ittihad Tripoli should edge them on to earn their 1st league victory.

This season Medeama threw away their home invincibility as one of the clubs that never lost a game at home last season, when Accra Hearts of Oak broke the jinx of poor performances at the home grounds of Medeama with first ever win.

A lot of tension grew between Coach Tom Strand and the management of the club, but the scuffle has been ironed out.

Bright Lukeman, the 2014-15 GN Bank Division One League top scorer is yet to find his feet in the Ghana Premier League, having struggled to hit the back of the net.

The last time Dwarfs had an away premier league victory was October, 26, 2014 when the piped Inter Allies by a goal to nil on match day 9 of the 2013-14 season and have since gone 12 away topflight league games without a win.
