Legon Cities search for their first win in the 2019/2020 season continues on Wednesday night when they welcome Ashantigold at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The mega rich club has picked only two points out of the nine possible points available in the three games.

A draw against Liberty Professional and Dreams FC sandwiched by a defeat to Asante Kotoko leaves them with only two points in three games.

Cities showed some glimpses of their quality against Dreams over the weekend and they will be looking to improve upon that against the Miners.

Coach Goran will be looking to pick his first win of the season to calm the nerves of the teeming fans who have been supporting the club since day one.

Ashantigold are coming into the game unscathed after three round of games.

The Miners have so far defeated Olympics, King Faisal and Eleven Wonders in their three games so far, and they will be looking to add Cities in the list of their victims.

The miners are among the three clubs in the league who are yet to concede a goal in the league so far.

They have been brilliant in both attack and defense making it difficult for the clubs to hold them.

The attacking trio of Mark Agyakum, Shafiu Mumuni and Amos Addai have score four goals in three games they will be looking to add more in the subsequent games.
