Liberty look to derail Hearts' surge

14 years ago

Another round of matches unfolds this weekend as some big games are lined up in the the weekend's Glo Premier League match programme.

Match-day-17 of the League sees champions, Hearts of Oak playing in the regional derby against Liberty Professionals, All Stars hosting Asante Kotoko and leaders Aduana tackling Eleven Wise.

After a goal-rush resumption of the second round, producing 22 goals, the weekend's match action is tipped to be thrilling but with fewer goals.

Liberty Professionals make the short trip in the capital, Accra, to tackle Hearts at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

A superb run in midweek where Liberty thrashed Hasaacas 4-1, would see them go into the derby with much confidence after the Phobians could only draw goalless away.

A win for Hearts would mean a league double over Sellas Tetteh's side. The tie would certainly end with a winner with the odds favouring the champions.

Asante Kotoko's gradual rise would be tested when they travel up west to face All Stars.

The Porcupine Warriors are aiming to break into the top four but the game in Wa would be a rather difficult task for their ambitions.

An intriguing fixture is to take place at Dormaa as leaders Aduana Stars attempt to hold onto the top spot while their opponents, Eleven Wise plan to pull out of the relegation zone.

Elsewhere on a weekend that boasts a packed fixture list, New Edubiase and AshantiGold would be locked in another derby at the Len Clay Stadium.

Heart of Lions entertain fourth-placed contenders Kessben FC at the Kpando while Chelsea take on Great Olympics at the Coronation Park.

King Faisal's struggling campaign that has seen them remain in the bottom three continues at the Baba Yara Stadium where they host Real Tamale United.

For bottom side, Hasaacas, their position on the table could be made worse if they fail to beat visiting Berekum Arsenals at the Sekondi Sports Stadium.
