Dwarfs chief Nana Aidoo eyes Berekum Chelsea scalp on home return

Ebusua Dwarfs will host Berekum Chelsea at home on Sunday

Ebusua Dwarfs Chief Executive Nana Aidoo is confident their return to their home grounds will provide the impetus to spark their campaign.

Dwarfs will play at the Robert Mensah stadium for the first time since August after serving an eight-match ban.

The stadium was closed after irate supporters allegedly assaulted referee Patrick Kyeremanteng  during a Premier League clash against Aduana Stars last season.

The Cape Coast-based side will host Berekum Chelsea on Sunday, knowing victory would enhance their ambitions of finishing among the top-four.

Dwarfs were touted as one of the serious contenders for the title until the unfortunate incident occurred which affected their chances greatly.

But after playing home away from home for the past four months, their affable and ever-smiling chief is thrilled with the turn of events and positive it will revitalize their campaign.

“I want to use this opportunity to thank the management team, supporters and everybody who helped in diverse ways to ensure we maintain our top-flight status despite the difficulties that we went through,” Aidoo told Accra-based Peace FM

“I just want to assure members of the Referees Association of Ghana that the episode won’t occur again. I give them my word.

“I will urge the fans to exercise restraint in times of difficulties. They (fans) must understand that in football, you either win, lose or draw.

“I will however thank almighty God for granting us travelling mercies as we played week-in-week out away from home.

“We have a good record against Chelsea. Two seasons we beat them 3-1 but they managed to pick a point  at Cape Coast last season.

“Nevertheless I am confident we’ll beat them to make our fans happy.

Dwarfs recorded a 2-1 win at All Stars in their last encounter on November 11.
