Ashanti Gold's struggle is real here at Len Clay Stadium with only 6 points collected from 6 Premier League games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 1-3-2. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Ashanti Gold to get some points in this home game.

Preceding that match was the home game against Medeama that was lost 0-1.

The lack of attacking qualities in Ashanti means that they have only scored 3 goals in 6 league home games, less than half a goal per match.

Elmina Sharks form and stats

There's been little loot from Elmina Sharks's travels as they have only collected 1 point from 6 away games in the Premier League. Elmina Sharks only have 0 wins to counter their 5 defeats and 1 draw. With the Elmina losing streak of six defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking.

Mensah was the last player to score for the away team. Elmina haven't scored a league goal in the last 576 minutes.

The manager was unhappy after their last game, a Premier League match played at their home ground Paa Kwesi Nduom Stadium. Elmina Sharks suffered a 0-1 loss to Aduana Stars (placed 2nd).

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against WAFA wasn't a success with a 0-2 loss.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Elmina's away games in the league this season with only 2 goals from 6 matches. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Elmina Sharks have conceded 11 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
