The Berekum Golden City Park will host citizens, Chelsea and visiting club New Edubiase United in match day twenty-one (21) encounter between both sides.

Berekum Chelsea are gearing up for much enough and needed points to keep them sailing on board for a respectable position in the league now that it is unlikely for them to win the league, though not highly.

Solomon Odwo's led team have been on the descendent tray in the second round of the league dropping to the nineth (9th) position with twenty-six (26) points after entering the last ten round of league matches.

Playing at home in this fixture will look to be a plus for the "blues" as they have not lost any of their home games in the second round beating Inter Allies and Ebusua Dwarfs by 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.

Adding New Edubiase, who have been woeful on the road, to the culprits could catapult them to the fifth (5th) position with a win, which could rekindle their hopes of making amends in making the top four or even going further to win the league.

New Edubiase United are on a three-match unbeaten run in the league which is their longest since the league started and having been able to pick up a point against Aduana at equally intimidating grounds like the Golden City Park, the "Yenko nkoaa" boys will be motivated enough to go for the kill so as to ensure their survival in the league.

The Adansi-based club are at the bottom of the league log with a paltry eighteen (18) points after match week twenty (20) and getting at least a points in Berekum will go head ways to instill in them the hopes of survival.

The records are against New Edubiase United as they have only won four (4) times as against Chelsea's seven (7) with only two (2) ending in a drawn game.

With this, New Edubiase will be at the throat to at least close the gap between them and Chelsea which will bring the best out of them.
