Ebusua Dwarfs host the giants Asante Kotoko this afternoon at the Cape Coast Stadium to clear out an outstanding match-week seven of the ongoing Ghana Premier League.

 
 

This game was supposed to have been honoured weeks ago but got rescheduled due to Kotoko's participation in the CAF club competitions.

 
The Crabs head into this game with huge motivation after picking  a crucial victory over Liberty Professionals after rising from a goal down thanks to goals from Michael Asamoah and Moro Sumaila 
 
However, Asante Kotoko were stretched by WAFA to a 1-1 stalemate in Sogakope thanks to Kwame Opoku's second half equaliser which earned the Porcupine Warriors in the end.
 
Ebusua Dwarfs after eight games are currently sit 11th on the table with 11 points with a win today likely to send them places up the top. 
 
Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko are also found 7th on the league log with 13 points after eight matches and will want to claim all three points to make a way into the top four.
 
TEAM NEWS
 
Dwarfs coach Ernest Thompson-Quartey has stated his boys are well prepared and poised for the game as they look to grind maximum points this afternoon.
 
Good news as lanky midfielder Mudasiru Salifu has returned from injury and will be available for selection today.
 
Meanwhile, Muniru Sulley has been ruled out of this game due to injury he picked against WAFA last Sunday.
 
Abdul Latif Anabila limped off from training yesterday and look very doubtful for the game whiles Kwame Adom Frimpong has also still not recovered.
