The 2019/20 Ghana Premier League enters into Match Day three as all eighteen (18) clubs look set for the weekend round of games.

Bottom-placed Hearts of Oak will seek their first point of the new campaign when they host Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Phobians have had a poor start to the new season, losing 1-0 to Berekum Chelsea before being thumped 3-0 by Medeama SC at the Tarkwa Park.

They come up against another side [Ebusua Dwarfs ]who are yet to pick up a point this season. A win for either side will come as a breather but Hearts of Oak could use that more after coming under increasing pressure to perform following a relatively active transfer window.

Six (6) clubs are aiming to maintain the winning record after two games; defending champions Aduana Stars will face struggling King Faisal at the home while Asante Kotoko play 7th-place Berekum Chelsea.

The Porcupine Warriors came from a goal down to beat Legon Cities 3-1 on Friday night at the Accra Sports Stadium. Coach Maxwell Konadu and his charges will look to replicate similar form when they face Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Ashanti Gold SC will welcome Eleven Wonders to the Obuasi LenClay stadium. The visitors are without a point so far.

At the Dawu Park, Dreams FC will face talk-of-the-town Legon Cities FC in what promises to be an interesting fixture.

The rebranded Legon Cities will be seeking their first three points of the season after having picked just a point in their first two games.

They will aim to overcome the 3-1 loss to Asante Kotoko in the last fixture, but this will not come easy as they face Dreams FC at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ in Dawu.

After suffering an opening day defeat to Bechem United, Elmina Sharks managed a point at home against Karela United last Sunday.

They have been presented another opportunity to play at home but this time it comes against West African Football Academy (WAFA) who have won all two games; beating Karela United and Ebusua Dwarfs 1-0, 2-0 respectively.

After an emphatic victory against Hearts of Oak, Medeama SC will test their resolve when they travel to the Dansoman Karl Reindolf Park to play Liberty Professional.

The scientific soccer lads have picked two points in their two opening games so far; a 2-2 draw against Legon Cities FC and a goalless stalemate away to Berekum Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Karela United will play Inter Allies FC at home. Following a 4-0 opening day defeat to Aduana Stars, the ‘Eleven is to One’ side recovered with a 2-1 victory against Bechem United last Saturday.

The Liberty Professionals – Medeama SC game is scheduled for Saturday, 11th January 2019 with the rest of the games set for Sunday.
