Match Preview: Legon Cities vs Medeama SC
The large financial investment in the now Accra-based club has not reflected in on the field success and it was no surprise that Legon Cities parted ways with manager Goran Barjaktarevic earlier this week. New coach Bashir Hayford will have quite a task at hand as Legon Cities have turned in two poor performances this season but Hayford, who is an experienced GPL coach will not be fazed by it. Medeama SC. Medeama have been underwhelming up to this point and Samuel Boadu will be hoping his team can bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Dreams FC. The loss of key players Prince Opoku Agyemang and Nana Kofi Babil is still being felt and it will be interesting to see how Medeama cope with that going forward.
