On Sunday,  the remaining 6 games will be played concurrently at differing venues. Eleven Wonders will make a stop at Kumasi where they play away to Asante Kotoko. Aduana Stars will seek to redeem their dented image when they play at home to International Allies at their Dormaa Park. Will Hearts of Oak keep up their never say die spirit when they battle Dreams FC at the Cape Coast Stadium?  Time will tell! 

At the Dansoman Park,  Liberty will play as hosts to Medeama whilst Chelsea will travel up north to do battle with All Stars. Dwarfs and Karela will battle it out for the points at stake at Aiyinase. 

Here are some things worth knowing ahead of the 4th round of games; 

1. All 5 goals scored in the league by Inter Allies this season have come in the second half of their games. Interestingly, the only goal they have conceeded also was netted in the second half of the game. 

2. After Prince Antwi's goal that defeated Kotoko at the Babayara Stadium in 2016, Kotoko have played 26 home games after on without a defeat. 

3. Aduana Stars have conceeded just 2 goals in their last 10 home games. All 2 goals have been scored in the first half period of the games. 

4. In 2012/13, RTU in their first 20 games in the league, lost 19 and drew 1. They ended that season without a win,  scoring 19 and conceeding 73 in 30 games.  Abysmal!

5. In their last 20 league games,  Ashantigold SC have won 13. Surprised at their start to this season? 

Exchange of pleasantries, WAFA versus Aduana 
6. Between 09/10/11 and 01/04/12, Bechem Utd played 22 games and managed only 2 wins. 

7. In 2017, Ashantigold's Hans Kwofie scored 4 goals against Chelsea and repeated the dose against Aduana Stars.  8 goals in 2 matches?  Top class. 

8. In his two coaching stints in Ghana, Kenechi Yatsuashi has met Kotoko on matchday 2 with two different clubs and got beaten on both occasions. 

9. Do you remember the last time Hearts won four games on a trot?  Well,  that was between 29/09/13 and 13/10/13. In that period the miracle of Tema occurred.
