Herculean King Faisal task awaits Medeama

Leaders Mede­ama SC need 270 minutes of com­posedly focused football in the last three games to determine their maiden champion­ship glory in the betPawa Ghana Premier League.

The Mauve and Yellow, on 53 points, have just a solitary point lead off the pack and have sworn fire and brimstone to maintain their head as they head into their match-day 32 tricky tie against relegation-threatened, King Faisal, this afternoon.

Alhaji Karim Grusah’s Faisal, are deep-neck in the drop – lying last-but-one on the log with 36 points and can only offer their campaign a temporary kiss of life by beating Medeama at the Akoon Park today.

Faisal have hit a terrible patch of form as they have remain win­less in their last five games, picking just a point.

On the reverse, Medeama have racked up nine points from a possible 15, winning their last two games that included a thumping 5-1 famous victory against Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadi­um on Sunday. It was a result that was highly unexpected. It was the Phobians’ heftiest loss on home soil.

That ‘cut-throat’ Accra win, executed in the most ruthless manner, had everybody tipping the Tarkwa-based side as favourites for the title.

Indeed, if they proceed to beat King Faisal today, that age-long dream could be that near; a poten­tial reality hitherto leaders – Adua­na Stars, do not want to imagine.

One thing that Medeama can, however, be assured of from their opponents this afternoon is total aggressive football – aware that anything aside from victory could mean farewell to elite football.

Nevertheless, the likes of Mede­ama’s Vincent Atinga, in-top-form Jonathan Sowah, Derrick Fordjour and midfield-general, Kwesi Don­su, appear to find themselves in a stunningly fine fettle and could be too hot for Grusah’s red-eyed boys to handle.

The wild manner in which players, officials and their support­ers romped into celebration after the Hearts win, is demonstrable of what may have been ringing in their mind. The visitors are famished for a title that has eluded them several times.
