Karela United welcome Great Olympics to the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park on Friday afternoon for Week 27 of the Ghana Premier League.
The game – which kicks off 15 : 00 GMT – represents one of the interesting fixtures of the second round of the Ghanaian top-flight. The stakes are high for both sides. The home team are currently 5th on the league table on 42 points and can go third on interim basis a win against the Accra-based side.
Meanwhile Olympics – who have defied odds this season by producing some wonderful football and results – would want to add more points to their 43 already amassed after 26 matches but they know that dangerman Diawisie Taylor would have to dealt with if they are to achieve that purpose.
Taylor leads the Goal King chart of the league on 15 targets and has shaken the net three times in his last four outings. His last goal came at the Golden City Park against Berekum Chelsea during Week 26 as Karela drew 1-1.
Abdul Mudasiru is on the other side a striker on form after scoring 4 goals in the last 4 games he’s played.
Olympics recently won 3-2 at WAFA and so Karela are warned.
