PREVIEW; OBUASI ASHANTI GOLD SC VS. BECHEM UNITED- Troubled “Elephants” to show no mercy to the “Hunters.”

Obuasi Ashanti Gold SC returns home after their gruesome defeat to Berekum Chelsea last weekend at the Golden City Park to battle it out for all three points with Bechem United at the Len Clay Sports Stadium in match-week-six fixture.

The wounded “Elephants” were totally annihilated and taking to the gutters by the Brong Ahafo side and will continue again today to host their compatriots from that region who recently returned from their debut campaign in Africa.


 Ashanti Gold SC do have it fresh in their minds with nostalgia of how things panned out against Chelsea in Berekum and will be on a redemption exercise today to get them fighting back for the league trophy as they were tagged as of the favorites to win the league this season.


The humiliation last week can only be erased from the books of the “Aboa Kese” team when they pull the trigger against Bechem United today to get all three points.


Coach Bashir Hayford and charges will love to appease their fans from what happened last week at their comfortable grounds against another Ahafo team who have been a toast in the flesh of the Obuasi side.


Ashanti Gold SC do not record so many injuries in their side which keeps them stronger and having full throttle of their arsenal to redeem themselves from the disgrace they received last week in the league.


Idan Conney and Richard Acron should be back in the set up of Ashanti Gold SC to face Bechem United with their ex-factor star, Emmanuel Osei Baffour leading the attack together with newly import, Hans Kwofie who has already scored thrice in the league after week five.


However, Bechem United have started well in the season after their exit from the CAF Confederations Cup which they first lost to Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in their maiden league game of the season.


They have gone further to pick vital points both home and away since then placing themselves very well on the league log with seven points after playing four games with an outstanding left to be played.


Bechem United do not look to stop their impressive performance this season against Ashanti Gold on the road but will push stronger to get the result that will place them comfortably in the league before it gets late in the dark hours of the season.


The “Hunters” are with a deep squad trekking from Bechem to Obuasi with Ahmed Toure looking forward to score his third of the season today. Hamza Mohammed and Hajj Saddick Abubakar who were superb in their game against Liberty Professional should relish for a start against Ashanti Gold today if called upon by their Italian coach Vincenzo Alberto Annese.


Ashanti Gold SC are not seeing the light of day in the season which they wanted a better performance this season as compared to last season which they started poorly and will take this match as the final of the season to get everything from the game that might push them away from the relegation zone.


Bechem United are on a two matches winning streak and will like to continue from there today at Obuasi even though they have not been good away travelers in the league. Getting the results from this game will catapult them upwards from their current position to at least, the top four position where they seek to achieve at the end of the season.
