Listen to article

Accra, June 21, GNA - Coach Oti Akenten's Black Satellites will on Wednesday play as guest of Premier division side, Berekum Arsenals in a friendly football match at Berekum.

The Satellites are currently in camp in their preparation towards the African Youth Championship tie against Gabon and the friendly is expected to give them the necessary test and match against the Berekum lads.

The Satellites are scheduled to play guest to the Gabonese and honour the return leg on July 17 and 31 respectively.

Coach Akenten has so far led the team to record impressive displays against four premier clubs in the last two weeks in which they won all their matches.

The Satellites defeated Kpando Heart of Lions, Power FC, Real Sportive and drew with Liberty Professionals in similar trials start as favourites on Wednesday.

The homesters who have so far fared well in all three league games played, are buoyant about their chances of matching the visitors. Arsenals are poised to hand the Satellites their first defeat when they clash on Wednesday.

Oti Akenten would likely parade players like Prince Tagoe, Kwaku Essien, Michael Helebge, Eric Bekoe, Samuel Asante and Nafiu Abdul to continue his unbeaten run.

An arsenal official has meanwhile announced a flat rate of 10,000 cedis to be charged at the gates.
