Who Makes It To Premiership?

The El-Wak Stadium in Accra will be a scene of tension and evoke fond memories today as it hosts one of two decisive games in the Division One Middle League.

Sekondi Eleven Wise play Samartex at El-Wak in Zone 2, while B.A. United clash with Chelsea at the Baba Yara Stadium in Zone 1 in two games that will decide two of three new comers for next season's premiership.

As the venue that hosted Sekondi Eleven Wise's return to the Premier league in 1997, the El-Wak Stadium might just hold great memories for the once-formidable side in local football.

By some kind of fate, the Western Show Boys have their last game rescheduled for the El-Wak Stadium to avert what the Division One League (DOL) board believes could emerge from the tension that has built up around the match.

Wise have waged their campaign on the strength of a new management that has injected the experience of Angelo Dedon and former Great Olympics player, Winfred Dormon, while Samartex have done battle mainly on the unity around the squad of young men.

In similar vein, the B.A. United versus Chelsea game in Kumasi holds potentially explosive scenes for fans as B.A. United seek their return after five years of absence.

While B.A. remain solid in experience, their opponents have been boosted by the presence of John Cudjoe and Fuseini Adams, two players who have walked the length and breadth of the local terrain.

Soccer Warriors and Upper Stars also clash in the other group game.

In Zone 3, leaders Royal Knights take on St Mirren at Cape Coast, while Power FC and Fair Point clash at Sekondi in the zone's second games.
