Medeama travel to Dormaa Ahenkro to battle Aduana Stars FC in an epic Ghana Premier League match on Sunday with a depleted squad following injuries to several key players.
The champions are without at least four of our starters for the crucial away match at the Nana Agyemang Badu I Stadium.
Top striker Jonathan Sowah has been ruled out of the match after he scored in the 2-2 draw at home to Accra Lions on Wednesday.
The Black Stars striker picked up the setback on Wednesday and did not make the trip to Dormaa.
Wingers Derrick Fordjour and Theophilus Anobah are also out of reckoning with varied degrees of injury.
Coach Evans Augustine Adotey will need to strategise without his in-form midfielder Manuel Mantey, who also picked up an injury during the stalemate against the capital-based side.
However, Zimbabwe international Kudakwashie Mahachi and experienced defender Kwadwo Amoako are back in the squad for the long trip to Dorma Ahenkro.
Mahachi, 27, is now line to make his competitive bow for the Ghana champions since he arrived in Tarkwa after his debut was delayed due to paperwork.
