Aduana Stars will aim for a third win on the spin when they take on West African Football Academy on Saturday 04 December at the Nana Agyemang Badu Stadium.
Aduana made it a back-to-back win when they defeated Legon Cities 1-0 in Accra. The win came courtesy of a powerful free-kick by Yahaya Mohammed from the edge of the box, and the goalkeeper had no chance of stopping the rocket.
Credit to the Aduana goalkeeper Joseph Addo for keeping a clean sheet. He had a defining performance from the poles, making crucial saves and commanding his area. The defence also put their bodies on the line, defending with composure when put under pressure by Legon Cities.
The victory ensured that Aduana moved into the top four of the Ghanaian Premier League. It’s still early days in the season; however, it looks like Joseph Bediako’s team will have a good season.
“We have just started the league; we are gradually picking up. We have new players, and we are waiting for them to gel, then we can see the real Aduana,” said Bediako in his post-match interview.
They seem to have found the balance between defence and attack, which makes them a well-drilled team. In the last two games, they have scored six goals and only conceded one.
Aduana will take this good form to their next game against WAFA, which by no means will be an easy one. But the home advantage will be on the side of Aduana, and they will look to utilize it and put away WAFA.
In their last game at the Nana Agyemang Badu Stadium, Aduana thrashed Real Tamale 5-1, making their home stadium a fortress. On Saturday 04 December, the world-class facility will host WAFA, who is coming off a 1-0 victory over Great Olympics – their first win of the season. The three points they won moved them up to 14th place on the log.
WAFA has not been good travellers on the road this season. They have lost their two away games so far this season; the first was a 1-0 loss to King Faisal, and then they also went down 2-0 to Tamale. On the road, they struggle to score goals and let goals in.
Their away form is something that Aduana head coach Bediako will look to exploit when doing his preparations for the match. Another motivating factor to get a win on Saturday is the home loss Aduana suffered at the hands of Faisal, something that still bothers Bediako; he wants to compensate the supporters with a run of home wins.
With all facts considered, Aduana stand a good chance of winning over the weekend against WAFA.
