Defending Champions of the premier league, Accra Hearts of Oak have made it two wins out two matches for the first time this season in a very long time, as they keep pressing harder for a better finish in the top 4 before the season ends with just 7 matches to go.
Hearts of Oak are harbouring the ambitions of defending the league title they won last season, but that is now practically seeming impossible considering the distance between themselves and Asante Kotoko who are leading the league log. However, the Phobians will send a strong signal should they beat Bechem United at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park on Saturday.
The Hunters have never lose a game this season at home, but Accra Hearts of Oak have built for themselves a reputation of having good run of results anytime they went visiting to the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park. Ahead of the premier league match week 28 clash on Saturday, head coach of the Phobians Samuel Boadu has cautioned his players against complacency against the back drop that the team has scored 6 goals in their last two league games (against Accra Lions and Dreams FC), and that they as well have a better record against Bechem United at Bechem anytime they went visiting.
Hearts of Oak beat Bechem United by 1-0 at the same venue in the league last season when the Phobians were in red hot form, and have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two with one going in favour of the Hunters.
“We have [good] record at Bechem, that doesn’t mean we should be swollen headed”, Boadu told StarTimes on Sunday.
“We are going in tactically to play well and if they [Hearts of Oak players] stick by our instructions I believe that something different will happen over there”, he stated.
Bechem United sit second on the league log, and despite not having title ambitions, want to finish in a respectable position and also to protect their unbeaten record at home this season when they come up against Hearts of Oak this weekend.
