GPL Preview: Hearts to test the prowess of Aduana



Accra Hearts of Oak will on Sunday seek to continue with their newly-found winning form at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa-Ahenkro as they come face to face with league title favourites, Aduana Stars in their fifth week match of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

Hearts were unable to win their first three league games against Inter Allies, Medeama SC and Ebusua Dwarfs until last Sunday when they welcomed the CAF Champions League debutantes and defending GPL champions, Wa All Stars, back to the premiership with a 2-1 win.

Two years ago at the Nana Agyemang Badu park, Hearts managed to spoil the party of the Dormaa boys when they won 0-1 but Aduana came back strongly a year later and also won by a lone goal against Hearts at the same venue. The two teams again played a goalless draw game last year at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Elsewhere, with their historic 1-1 feat at Wa last Wednesday against Wa All Stars, new entrants Elmina Sharks will make a stopover at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi and engage second-placed Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

The other fixtures will have Chelsea welcoming Ashgold to the Golden City park, Bechem United hosting Liberty Professionals at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour park, while Tema Youth, who lost at Elmina last Sunday, travel to the Tamale Utrecht Academy park to play against Bolga All Stars.

Coach Godwin Attram’s Great Olympics will trek to Sogakope to try and salvage a point against WAFA, with Medeama, who have always been a thorn in the flesh of Ebusua Dwarfs, visiting the Cape Coast Stadium to face off with Dwarfs.

Wa All Stars, who are yet to win a match after their return from international duty, will also welcome Inter Allies to the Wa Stadium.
