Final matches for this season’s GN Bank sponsored Division One - zone 2 - league will be played at the various league centers this weekend with action in zone one on hold as the DOL Board conducts investigations into allegations of bribery between Brong Ahafo United and Bolga All Stars in their match Day 28 fixture. Action is ongoing in zone three where week 28 matches will come on this weekend.
Following the crowning of Elmina Sharks as Zone Two Champions and their consequent promotion to the premiership, Karela FC and Bibiani Gold Stars coming in second and third respectively, the last top four spot is the best thing left to fight for at the upper end of things. On the bottom, the fight to avoid the drop will continue with at least five teams working hard to avoid the fate of relegated Tarkwa Utd who are off to the abyss of Division Two soccer.
Thus, Dunkwa Utd who have the 15th spot on 31points from 12 wins and 4 ties perhaps due to legal and disciplinary issues etc. will take on relegated Tarkwa Utd for the chance to improve on their points tally, two points off the first safe spot relegation threatened Venomous Vipers will welcome Gold Stars to their turf with hopes of a big win and a prayer for at least one of the three teams ahead of them on 36 points to falter and fall short of saving their season. Vipers have won their last three matches at home and that should be enough motivation for them as they go in search of one more win that may perhaps save their fate. And, the once powerful franchise - Kumasi Cornerstones - that at one them rivaled Kumasi Asante Kotoko will have much to play for as they take on 5th placed Nzema Kotoko on the road with their survival on the line as they look to avoid the drop.
In what is definitely the most intriguing matchup of the day, two relegation engulfed sides – 11th placed Starke FC and 12th placed Proud Utd with 36points apiece will duke it out at the Essipong stadium for a shot at redemption with the loser likely bound for the exit in case of a Vipers/Cornerstones win. And 10th placed on 37points Achiken will need all but a point go across the finish line as they host Wassaman Utd with a strong chance of picking up the maximum points.
Elsewhere, Eleven Wise will take on Karela FC for a shot at the last top four spot, Samartex FC will welcome Asokwa Deportivo and King Faisal who are well beyond the relegation fray will host Division winners – Elmina Sharks.
