Hearts of Oak ready for Miners' challenge

8 years ago

Hearts of Oak were sent packing from continental football over the weekend and now face another big task when they turn to domestic action on Wednesday.

The Phobians will be at home to Premier League leaders, AshantiGold at the Accra Stadium.

Following their dismal exit from the CAF Confederation Cup, where they were not good enough for Tunisia's Esperance, Herbert Addo needs his side to go past the Miners to restore some hope of their dream treble - Premier league title, FA Cup and Elite Cup.

It's been five seasons since the Phobians last won a domestic title and their inconsistent form guide this season does not pit them as one of the title hopefuls despite the poor run by their rivals, Asante Kotoko.

However, sitting 12th on the table and 9 points adrift AshantiGold, clearly shows the gulf that exist between Hearts of Oak and the league's best side so far.

A win for the Miners will give them a further boost in their quest for a fourth Premier League success.

The match is expected to kick off at 3:00 pm.
