GPL matchday four preview: Pressure mounts on Nuttall & Hearts

ShareClose Comments
The Accra-based side face an uphill task to claim maximum points for the first time this campaign as they play reigning champions All Stars

With three draws on the bounce, one can only imagine the pressure on Hearts of Oak as the Ghana Premier League enters week four on Saturday and Sunday.

And it will, perhaps, be the Phobians’ biggest match of the season yet, as they come up against defending champions Wa All Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Rivals Asante Kotoko, on the other hand, have a far calmer atmosphere in camp, having won three and drawn one of four games. Their quest to make it four wins faces a real test, with the Porcupine Warriors playing as guests to 2014-15 champions Ashanti Gold, who scored three times in their last home game.

With maximum points in all games thus far, Aduana Stars are indeed the team to beat. The ‘Ogya’ Boys, however, have a tricky fixture away at the Sogakope Stadium, where they lock horns with eighth-placed Wafa in the only game on Saturday.

At the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman, Accra, Liberty Professionals will hope to return to winning ways in their home encounter with Medeama, who sit third on the table.

Without a win thus far, Bolga All Stars have turned out to be the whipping boys. The side will, however, hope to turn things around in their home tie with fellow newly-promoted Great Olympics.

In another clash of the new boys, Elmina Sharks will take on Tema Youth at the Nduom Stadium, same day Bechem United host Berekum Chelsea at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park.

Finally at the El-Wak Sports Stadium, Inter Allies will lock horns with Ebusua Dwarfs, who held Hearts in their last fixture.
