Listen to article

Accra, Aug. 27, GNA - Kumasi based King Faisal football club will miss the services of their experienced and inspirational player, Godwin Ablordey and defender Illiasu Shilla in their second leg match of the GHALCA Special Knock out Competition against Kumasi Asante Kotoko scheduled for Wednesday, September 1.

Ablordey received his second yellow card in the competition in their first leg match in which they lost 1-2 to their city rivals.

Shilla has been a regular figure in the defensive network of Faisal for the past two years whilst Ablordey, a regular player in the midfield now operates alongside Shilla in central defence.

The absence of these two players is likely to affect the tactical plans of coach Sanzio Bahner in the second leg match as he will need at least one goal to advance to the finals due to the advantage of the one goal scored in the first leg of the semi finals.

Real Tamale United (RTU) will also go into the second leg game against Obuasi Ashantigold at the Kaladan Park without Mohamed Baker. Baker received his second yellow card in the competition in the first leg game at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

RTU lost the first leg game 2-0 and are expected to make amends next Wednesday in order to book a place in the finals.
