2020/2021 GPL Matchday 19 Preview:AshantiGold SC v Hearts Of Oak -Can the Miners silence inform Hearts?

Accra Hearts of Oak are currently unbeaten in their last six games, resulting in a significant leapfrog on the League log,picking up 14 points out of a possible 19 with four wins and two draws.

The Phobians last weekend overcame the forces of Aduana Stars scoring in either half courtesy of a Victor Aidoo bullet of a penalty and a closing stage own goal by defender Hafiz Adams wrapping up a perfect victory for the Accra giants.

Hearts of Oak have scored six goals in two games and seem to have rediscovered their goal scoring shoes with Victor Aidoo netting 7 goals in the on-going campaign. Nuru Sulley, Mohammed Alhassan, Raddy Ovouka and Mohammed Fataw have made the backline their own following consistent displays for the Phobians.

The Miners began the second round with a gallant away display that earned them one point against Karela United at Aiyinase.

New signing Kofi Mensah put up a man of the match performance to win them one point as he pulled some crucial saves to keep them in the game until Umar Basiru’s late equalizer. The former Ghanaian champions have not lost a game in Obuasi this season, sitting in 10th  place with 23 points.

New Coach Romain Folz would expect Mark Agyekum, Isaac Opoku Agyemang, Amos Addai, Jacob Apau and Seth Osei to pull some magic against an improved Hearts of Oak side on Saturday with the club currently struggling in front of goal aftet the departure of their hitman Hans Kwoffie who joined Money Tycoons Legon Cities earlier in the second transfer window.
