KING FAISAL FC VS KARELA UNITED
King Faisal stuttered in the last game, against Eleven Wonders in Techiman. That game was expected to go the way of in-form King Faisal, who are enjoying one of their best opening spells in the Ghana Premier League ever. That defeat caused them to drop off into 3rd place. Though quite respectable, coach Nurudeen Amadu will prefer a winning streak to the capitulation at Techiman. Karela presents an even more formidable opponent than Eleven Wonders. Playing at home at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium will be a confidence boost for Alhaji Grunsah’s side.
Karela United have fallen off the pace as top four contenders and lie 11th on the table, after playing 12 games. They have won only 3 of those games and drawn the most times, 5, losing 4 along the way. A hard-fought draw against Great Olympics away from Ainyinase was the last result they registered in the GPL – a good result. Will they succumb to the drudgery of traveling away for more than one weekend or be boosted by the draw in Accra?
