West African Football Academy will welcome Great Olympics this afternoon at the WAFA Arena in Sogakope, in the opening fixture of match-week 23 of the ongoing campaign.

 
 

This encounter is a herculean one and promises to be one of the interesting pairings most football fans in the country will want to witness.

 
Coach Prosper Nartey Ogum and his charges have commenced the second round on a very brighter note and will want to maintain their home record intact having won all their home games since the league took a curve and will want to extend it to three by the close of the day.
 
Great Olympics however, have been very poor since the start of the second part of the campaign but redeemed their image last week with a resounding 2-0 triumph over High flying Liberty Professionals thanks to goals from Maxwell Abbey and Joshua Kwame Rhule.
 
Meanwhile, WAFA also picked their first away win in the second round coming from a goal down to beat Berekum Chelsea by 3-2 at the Golden City Park to end their invincible home record in the league which has stood for over five years.
 
With three wins, a draw and a loss in the opening five games in the second round, WAFA sit 8th on the league table with 32 points.
 
Great Olympics also, have now built on their points to 37 leapfrogging Hearts of Oak to claim the third position on the league standing after 22 matches, trailing leaders Medeama SC with two.
 
TEAM NEWS 
 
The Sogakope-based outfit have been in a stupendous form in the second phase of the season with the introduction of Abdul Basit Issah and Justus Torsutey making a significant impact in the team as both found their names on the score sheet in their last games.
 
Also, their newly signed goalie Osei Kwadwo Bonsu had a fantastic game against his former club Berekum Chelsea last week but had to end the game in an ambulance after collapsing in the course and was rushed quickly to the hospital but is currently doing very well.
 
Prosper Nartey sweats on the return of young forward Eric Asmany who still hasn't recovered from his injury so as John Tedeku who has also been ruled out of this game.
 
On the opposition end, there is no any major injury concerns in the camp of Great Olympics as coach Annor Walker will have all his players at his disposal to select from this afternoon.
 
The good news is, reliable centre-back Jamal Deen Haruna has returned and has been involved in the team's training sessions throughout the week.
