The Wonder club remained bottom on the league log after failing to pick at least a point in their visit to Wa All Stars last weekend in an outstanding fixture. They were beaten 1-0.

Swedish trainer Tom Strand will be chasing his first victory in all competitions since taking over as the head coach of the capital club on Saturday.
Centre back Douglas Opoku returned to training this week after recovering from an injury.
 
Osah Bernardinho Tetteh, David Amuzu, Douglas Mintah, Christopher Nakai Nettey and Godfred Odametey are still not available for this match.
 
Asante Kotoko SC got their season move backwards once again when they lost 3-1 in the first leg of the Ghana@60 President’s Cup to fiercest rivals Hearts of Oak last Monday.
The Porcupines are currently lying 5th on the league ladder following a six match winless streak.
 
It’s over a month they last won a game in regulation time in all competitions.
 
Technical director Frimpong Manso still leads the team as the interim coach. He has not won a game within 90 minutes since taking charge.
Another lose could see them sink further to 6th place on the league table.
 
Ollenu Ashittey is battling an injury which rules him out of Saturday’s game. The skipper Amos Frimpong is also not available for selection.
