Match Preview- Medeama vs Liberty; League Leaders seek to continue perfect start against winless Liberty

The season’s table toppers Medeama SC travel to Dansoman on Saturday hoping to keep intact their impressive start to the campaign against a winless Liberty Professionals side.

The Mauves and Yellows were in ruthless form when they easily dealt with Hearts of Oak in their second match of the campaign. Aside the emphatic nature of the result, their overall performance should give Coach Samuel Boadu’s side confidence when they travel to the Carl Reindoff park; a venue they have recorded very positive results.

The home side, Liberty Professionals have unimpressed so far, failing to win any of their two games. They would however feel hopeful following a resolute performance in their last outing against Berekum Chelsea.

In a game many expected them to lose, the Scientific Soccer lads pulled hair through their noses to hold out for a hard-fought goalless draw with their young goalkeeper Ganiwu Shaibu emerging the man of the match.

If form is anything to go by, this should be Medeama’s game to lose but never underrate a Liberty side desperate to prove a point after an average start to the campaign.

Coach David Ocloo’s side will be determined to claim maximum points against one of the best teams in the league this season.

TEAM NEWS:

The home side have no major injury worries and coach David Ocloo should keep faith with the squad that made the trip to Berekum to secure the 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
