Match Preview: WAFA vs Aduana Stars, Academy Boys hoping to quench fire of defending champions

WAFA will look to bounce back from a heavy defeat against Legon Cities when they host defending champions Aduana Stars in this match week 14 clash at Sogakope.

The Academy Boys lost their unbeaten away run to the Royals and that surely must be confidence denting coming into this fixture. They will however draw inspiration from their last home game when they trashed title chasers AshantiGold SC 6-1.

The defeat on Sunday ended WAFA’s 6 match unbeaten run and they will be keen to start anew when Aduana Stars come to town. The reigning league champions are also on an unbeaten run of their own and will seek an extension when they face their opponents.

Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side has won 2 of their last 3 games drawing the last encounter at home to AshantiGold. They have kept clean sheets in those 3 matches and their confidence levels will be very high as they slug it out with WAFA.

Aduana Stars have quite a decent record at Sogakope. Since losing on their first visit there in 2015, the Ogya Lads have gone unbeaten on the road against WAFA. They recorded 1-1 draws twice in August 2016 and February 2017.

The likes of Yahaya Mohammed will hope to draw inspiration from this to get a favorable result in Wednesday’s encounter.

TEAM NEWS:

WAFA’s Richard Danso will sit out this game due to suspension while Coach Prosper Narteh is expected to make some few changes in the team that lost embarrassingly to Legon Cities.
