Liberty Professionals host Hearts of Oak Wednesday – Preview

1 year ago

Liberty Professionals have won just two of their last 9 Premier League games, leaking 21 goals across matches (home and away) with their last win coming in Obuasi against AshantiGold on Sunday, February 7.

The Scientific Soccer lads who were condemned to their sixth defeat of the season in a 2-0 loss to Karela United on Sunday, hopes to bounce back to winning ways against Accra Hearts of Oak on Wednesday.

Liberty lacks cutting edge, creativity and leadership at the back, a problem Coach David Ocloo needs to address before they take on the Phobians. The lightening of Abraham Wayo isn’t glowing as expected, the finesse of George William Ansong has yet to sparkle and George Amoako hasn’t been himself since his move to Tunisia collapsed.

Kwame Karikari has scored some crucial goals to win them points on the road but the youngster lacks the needed consistency to turn their fortunes around.

Hearts of Oak beat Dwarfs 3-2 on Sunday to give record their first win in four games, to end a run of poor results. Victor Aidoo scored a brace on Sunday to take his tally to 7 goals in the season. The former Samartex attacker has fitted in perfectly for Kojo Obeng Jnr. whose season has been plagued by injuries.

Hearts of Oak sit in 9th place with 20 points, 8 behind Karela United who occupy the first spot with 28 points.

The game is scheduled for 3pm kick off at the Carl Reindorf park in Dansoman and it will be broadcasted live on StarTimes Adepa channel 247.
