Heading into the festive season of Christmas and the Onetouch Premiership feeds us with lots of action as the league rolls out match-day-6 beginning on Saturday.

The first game of the weekend's clashes would be at the El-Wak Stadium where Real Sportive test their strength against newly promoted Wa All Stars, who have had a fairly good start to the season.

The Blues from Wa lead their opponents for Saturday's game by three points and would seek to grind out if possible a draw against Sportive who have had a rather poor run so far.

Sportive are just a step above the bottom side on the table and defeat would further hamper their plans to pull away from the 15th position that they are clinging onto.

Then on Sunday, the weekends biggest pick, the game between AshantiGold and table toppers, Asante Kotoko.

Kotoko travel to the Golden City Park in Berekum with the enviable tag as, table toppers, to play the Miners – playing away from home because of a three-game home ban – in a grudge game.

David Duncan's Miners, who have not fared too well this season have picked four out of a maximum of 15 points so far would try to halt the winning run by the Porcupine Warriors – five wins out of five matches.

As AshantiGold and Kotoko battle, Liberty Professionals and Heart of Lions would be competing for honours at the Carl Reindorf Park at the same time.

Lions are three points adrift the league leaders and wouldn't want to be pegged back but Liberty smarting from the midweek defeat would seek to collect all the three points at home.

At the Anane Boateng Park in Abrankese, defending champions, Hearts of Oak would play home team, Kessben FC.

The Phobians have failed to be consistent but would be propped on by their win over Liberty in midweek. However, they are up against one of the league's best sides so far who are very confident.

Sekondi Hasaacas welcome Real Tamale United to the Gyandu Park. The Pride of the North have been good away performers this season, would seek to take that mentality to the Gyandu grounds against a Hasaacas side that has struggled even at home.

The Swedru Park would host the match between Gamba All Blacks and Tema Youth while King Faisal return to the Coronation Park to play Berekum Arsenals.

Great Olympics, who are pegged bottom of the table, partly due to their poor performances would play Zaytuna FC at the El-Wak Stadium on Sunday.

The Wonder Boys are still in search of their first win and this could be the game to help them make a positive statement in the league.
