AshantiGold will host Liberty Professionals on Matchday 13 of the Ghana Premier League.
The game is scheduled to kick off at Len Clay Stadium at 3pm on Sunday.
The Miners will hope to return to winning ways at their backyard having gone four matches without a win following defats against Legon Cities (5-2), and Ebusua Dwarfs (2-1) and two drawn games against Medeama SC (0-0) and Asante Kotoko (0-0).
The Obuasi-based outfit currently sit 8th in the league standings with 17 points.
Meanwhile, Liberty travel to Obuasi with no away win this season having recorded two draws, four defeats on the road so far.
The Scientific Soccer lads find themselves in a early relegation dog-fight and will need a result on Sunday to kick start their season.
Coach David Ocloo knows his team have to dig deep to cause an unlikely upset against AshantiGold on their home turf.
But the gaffer will take some inspiration from their much-improved performance against Aduana Stars in midweek.
