2022/23 Ghana Premier League: Week 14 Match Preview – Samartex v King Faisal

Published on: 29 January 2023

Samartex will welcome King Faisal to Nsekyire Sports Arena on Sunday in week 14 of the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League.

Kick off for the game is set at 15:00 GMT. King Faisal and Samartex have not met in a Ghana Premier League tie yet.

The hosts will come into this fixture busking in the glory of frustrating Hearts of Oak to a goalless draw in Accra the last time out in the league.

On the other hand, the In Sha Allah lads are approaching this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Tamale City in their previous outing.

The two sides are separated by just a point, with King Faisal up in 12th place (17 points) while Samartex sit 15th (16 points).

Samartex have lost just one of their las five league games, a heavy 3-0 defeat to Bibiani GoldStars. They have also registered two wins and two defeats each.

King Faisal’s form on the road hasn’t been good. They have lost three of their last five games in the league, with a win and a draw each.

Samartex will still be without head coach, Annor Walker, who led Ghana to a quarterfinal exit at the 2022 Championship of African Nations (CHAN). He won’t return in time to oversee this game.
