Last kick for 16 clubs

Last kick for 16 clubs

An eventful football season filled with passion, action, intrigue and drama and capped by joy and pain comes to an end this weekend.

The premiership season finally winds down and with the title already won, the quest for continental places and the fight to avoid relegation would keep the heat on.

Accra Hearts of Oak won the championship on match-day-29 while Power FC got relegated by match-day-25.

Though the two sides are uniquely placed apart and have nothing to prove on the final day of matches, the remaining fourteen clubs do have a lot to play to for.

For some, it's the points to secure continental slots while others shrug off the relegation threat when matches kick off at 15:00 GMT on Sunday.

Run away winners, Accra Hearts of Oak host Berekum Arsenals at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape Coast.

The Phobians have nothing to lose but would seek to avoid defeat to the Gunners who handed them a 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season.

However, the Gunners, fifth on the table are seeking a top four finish and are expected to put in everything to achieve a positive result.

Now, up the table, the competition for the second Champions League slot remains a straight battle between AshantiGold and Asante Kotoko as both fight for the second position on the log.

Kotoko, who lie third, failed to defend the league title won last season and have played poorly in their last three games a situation which has raised questions about their chances of leapfrogging the Miners to the second position.

Successive defeats to Hasaacas and Arsenals coupled with uneasiness in their camp has heightened the tension within the ranks of the red army.

But the Porcupine Warriors would have the chance to maybe move second if they manage a win over Great Olympics at the Nkawkaw Park depending on the result of AshantiGold's game.
