After our one-all draw in our visit to the Akoon Park last weekend against Medeama, we return to our home grounds, Baba Yara Stadium, on Sunday afternoon, hoping to continue the feel-good factor when we take on Legon Cities.

Paa Kwasi Fabin’s side will travel to the Baba Yara Stadium for the first time this season with pride after their recent good show in the league.

Legon Cities trips to Baba Yara Stadium would be termed successful as we have yet to record a win over them after switching from Wa All Stars to Legon Cities. 

During our resurgence in the first round of the league, we suffered a brief scare last time out against the Legon Cities. Following the early shock, via a free kick goal from Nasiru Mohammed, the floodgates were open in the second half, and the Warriors came back from the disappointing first-half show to beat Legon Cities 3-1 to spare our blushes at the WAFA Park last November.

An intelligent workout from the team forced Legon Cities defender Suleman Mohammed to score an own goal from Steven Mukwala’s cut-back pass in the penalty area. Steven Mukwala and Isaac Oppong completed the comeback in a perfect, dominant fashion.

We go into tomorrow’s game a point adrift of our opponent, who have 38 points with a game in hand against Dreams FC.

Legon Cities have appeared to be rejuvenated following a great run of games and head into Sunday's game with back-to-back victories over Hearts of Oak and Berekum Chelsea. Their frontline of Stephen Asare, Frederick Akatuk, and Albert Amoah have contributed five goals in their last two games.

Prosper Narteh Ogum and his squad will be aiming to keep the momentum and ensure that we record our first successive victories in the second round of the league to have a perfect start to the new month.

It's good to be back home after the win over Samartex and a draw on the road against Medeama, and to have the right focus and determination to produce a great performance in front of our cherished home supporters.


• Henry Ansu got injured against Medeama last week; he will be out for tomorrow’s game.

• Justice Blay will serve a one-game suspension tomorrow after receiving his third yellow card of the Premier League season against Medeama.

• Richmond Lamptey will continue to be missing through injury.

• John Tedeku had gym and individual field sessions during the week, but he is expected to be out.

• Isaac Oppong and Peter Amidu Acquah are available again after sitting out of the Medeama game.

 • Nurudeen Yussif Mohammed trained a couple of times during the week, but will be assessed by the medical team.

• Midfielder Michael Kyei Dwamena is finally back and available for selection.

• Sherif Mohammed (midfielder) is out for the season after undergoing successful surgery.
