Kotoko face Liberty in Kumasi

By The Statesman

The 2007/08 Onetouch Premiership enters the ninth week on Sunday with league leaders Asante Kotoko and fourth-placed Liberty Professionals duel toping the 16-club contest at the refurbished Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

The match that is expected to attract a record spectatoring at the Ghana 2008 venue, will definitely generate lots of thrills, considering Kotoko's spectacular performance this season. And with Liberty"s former striker Eric Bekoe now in their camp, the Porcupine Warriors' aspiring goalking will certainly lead his new club into victory.

Heart of Lions will also welcome Hearts of Oak to the Kpando Stadium, where fans will also have much to cheer about.

The Phobians are not finding the competition easy and the Lions who are riding high without a defeat, will make things difficult for their opponents at their unbeaten Kpando home grounds.

At Berekum, Arsenals look stronger for Tema Youth, while Real Tamale United will open the newly constructed Sports Stadium for Ghana 2008 with a win over Kessben FC.

The Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park will also witness Zaytuna against King Faisal, who drew with Kotoko last Wednesday. Zaytuna must rely on the presence of Chelsea bound Gideon Baah to win.

At Wa, All Stars will be too strong for Sekond Hasaacas, as struggling Great Olympics will look for a win against Swedru All Black at the El-Wak Stadium in Accra.

On Saturday, Real Sportive will play Obuasi AshGold at El-Wak, where coach David Duncan will inspire the Miners to return home with the three points.
