Chelsea seek to halt Hearts’ run

The Ghana Premier League (GPL) excitement continues with match day 10 fixtures to be honoured this weekend with Hearts playing as guests of Berekum Chelsea as the biggest fixture at the Golden City Park in Berekum.

Under-pressure Berekum Chelsea will hope to apply the brakes on the high-flying Hearts of Oak side that has enjoyed some progress under Serbian coach Kosta Papic.

Bent on earning a top-of-the-table position, the Phobians would go all out to cause more havoc to the Hunters who have not seen the best of runs.

The return of forward Kojo Obeng Junior, Emmanuel Nettey and Lawali Mameni is a huge boost for the Phobians and explains why they go into the clash as clear favourites.

Coach Yaw Preko will hope to guide Olympics to a second feat after snatching a comfortable 2-0 win over Inter Allies last weekend.

But the clash against league leaders, Karela United will come with its own dynamics.

Karela emerged 4-1 victors in their last game over Berekum Chelsea with their hitman, Diawusie Taylor expected to lead the charge against the Wonder Club.

With the return of Coach Evans Adotey, Karela will be eager to ‘feed’ on Olympics to maintain their place at the top.

However, Olympics at home has become a new force to reckon with, playing some of their nicest games at the capital, the same venue they subjected Karela to some football drills in the truncated season before beating them 2-0.

Ahead of Olympics next game against their biggest rivals, Hearts of Oak, the AGOSU lads will need a big statement of intent to their fans and that will mean beating the leaders to indicate their readiness.

Dreams FC will welcome Liberty Professionals to the Dawu Park in a dicey affair.

Despite picking a point in their last game, the ‘Still believe’ lads could ease past Liberty who are yet to pick a point in their last two games.

The Tarkwa Akoon Park will host the Medeama SC versus Inter Allies game tomorrow.

Without a win in their last two games, the Yellow and Mauves would aim to bounce back to winning ways against an Inter Allies side that could also surprise the home team.

Dwarfs will welcome Sogakope based WAFA to the Cape Coast Stadium in a game expected to be full of thrills.

Coach Ernest Thompson Quartey and his charges would not have it on a silver platter against a tricky WAFA side.

However, the visitors would miss the services of top scorer Daniel Lomotey who traveled last Sunday to complete his move to Tunisian outfit AS Soliman.

Coach Prosper Narteh would count on the individual brilliance of Augustine Boakye, Lawrence Agyekum and Godwin Agbevor to power the Academy lads.

Bechem United will make a trip to Elmina to square off with Elmina Sharks at the Nduom Stadium.

Sharks earned a point in their last away trip to King Faisal and could use that experience to amass the maximum points against a Bechem side that have recorded a single defeat in their last game nine games.

King Faisal will have a daunting task when they make a trip to Techiman Eleven Wonders.

With a good run at home, Coach Ignatius Ofosu could deepen the woes of King Faisal who are sinking and lie 17th on the table with just a point above bottom placed Legon Cities.

Kotoko and Aduana Stars will clash at the Accra Sports Stadium tomorrow at (6pm).
