They have recorded 2 wins and a draw. Coach David Ocloo’s side beat both Dwarfs and WAFA 2-1 on the road while drawing 0-0 with Berekum Chelsea at the Berekum Golden City Park. They will be all geared up for this match.

The match will be the played behind closed doors as part of GFA imposed sanctions on Asante Kotoko.

AshantiGold v Ebusua Dwarfs

AshantiGold are currently in a patchy run of form in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season. After a bright start to the season, they have picked up only a point in their last three games and will be aiming to get back to winning ways as they lock horns with struggling side Ebusua Dwarfs.

Dreams FC vs Hearts of Oak

The Still Believe lads were beaten by Ebusua Dwarfs in their last game and they will be looking to put that defeat behind them as they welcome the Phobians.

Hearts of Oak, on the other hand, are coming back from a defeat against their bitterest rivals, Asante Kotoko and will be looking to get back on track after that defeat.

The Phobians have seven points after six games winning two drawing one and suffering three defeat. Hearts have to play above themselves if they plan to end Dreams unbeaten record at home.
