Premiership football beckons for two sides as the final-day of matches in the Division One League play-offs on Wednesday will confirm their places.

It will certainly be a thrilling last day with the permutations not lost on any side competing for promotion.

The winners after three rounds of matches from every group make it to the topflight league.

Former premiership side, Real Tamale United, relegated from the elite division last season could make a quick return after just a season in the second-tier league depending on the result of their final match.

Mohammed Gargo's R.T.U will go head-to-head against Unity F.C. in Kumasi for the sole ticket from Zone I.

Both sides have won two straight matches apiece ahead of their meeting. Unity F.C, who sit top the standings with a better goal advantage need a draw to make their premiership debut while R.T.U must win the game at the Baba Yara Stadium to return to the more lucrative competition.

The result of the game between Bazooka F.C and Bofokwa Tano at the Bekwai Park will make no difference to the qualification chances of top two clubs.

The competition in Zone III goes down to the wire for three teams, Instanbul, Amidaus and King Solomon. The fourth, Danbort are out of contention.

Leading by four points with a better goal difference, Instanbul must win their clash with Danbort F.C, bottom of the table in Cape Coast and keep a better goal advantage to make them a candidate for the elite division.

Sitting second with the same number of points, four, as have the leaders, Amidaus must also win and improve their goal's difference in their match against King Solomon and hope Instanbul lose or draw.

On the other hand, King Solomon also have an equal chance of qualifying if they win and Instanbul lose or draw in the other match.
