With Smith Osei and Karim out, the stage is now set for Sunday's “Big Do” where surviving teammates, Kobina Essien, Godwin Gakpo, Joseph Adams, Gabriel Darko and Bernard Gyimah will battle for supremacy.

In a friendly test match, Darko hit the back of the net four times to lift his tally to 27 goals, when they thrashed Tullow Oil FC 6-0 to set a new record in the competition, whilst Essien and Gakpo scored one apiece on the evening.

Gyimah escaped the tensed eviction exercise as he emerged the captain of the week, while Darko crowned his day's efforts by winning the Most Valuable Player Award.

Coaches David Duncan and Augustine Ahinful expressed satisfaction about the players' performance and said they believe that whoever emerges winner on Saturday will be a worthy champion.
