Yendi based Division Two club Great Amphibians have intensified their preparations towards their MTN FA Cup clash against Tamale Division One club Steadfast FC which will come off on the 14th May, 2021 at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium.
They engaged Yendi Soccer Heroes in a friendly game just to prepare themselves for the big game against the Division One League giants.
It was an exciting game at the Yendi Islamic No.1 JHS Park, both teams were ready to entertain the fans around the park.
The game which ended 2-0 against the Great Amphibians had so many positive impacts on both sides, Amphibians per the results recorded yesterday against Soccer Heroes knew that for them to go far in the competition, then they must work on their defense and the midfield, as those were the dominant areas by their opponents.
The first goal came from a defensive error while the second was a free header from a fine cross by Oly who run over their defense to make that fine cross.
The midfield found it difficult to win balls and distribute passes. This made it easy for the opponents to outplay them in the middle.
Coach White and his boys still has many work to do as they faced the free scoring Mohammed Gargo’s Steadfast FC.
It will be a tough game for Great Amphibians especially if the Division One League heavyweights decides to treat the game as DOL game.
Steadfast are currently on 2nd position after 20 league games played, they are on a run to securing their first qualification to the Premiership. They were the leading scorers in Zone One after the first round, led by an attacking trio of Abdul Fataw Issahaku who had 8 goals, Alhassan Siisu with 10 goals and Abu Abdullah with 4 goals.
Amphibians will participate in this year’s Division Two League which will begin very soon. They have been competing in the division two for so many years now, and with their experience in the league it will be unfair to underestimate their potentials against Steadfast fc.
An exciting game at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium on Friday, with either side wanting to qualify to the next stage of the competition.
Other games in the Northern zone will see Real Tamale United lock horns with fellow division side Yendi Gbewaa FC, and Tamale City will also entertain Sky FC from Tamale.
