After going four matches unbeaten in the Ghana Premier League, Accra Hearts of Oak will aim to make it five as they host Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium tomorrow. Their target faces a huge challenge as Bechem United count on getting points to maintain the chase for top spot.
Following their dismissal displays in CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup, the rainbow club tilted focus to replicating last season’s heroic performance. Coach Samuel Boadu and his chargers stayed purposeful to calm nerves as they scored a goal to pluck three points from a short trip to Elmina. The victory against Elmina Sharks urged them to score two unanswered goals against Accra Lions in another league match. The two wins rekindled interest and raised expectations ahead of another clash against Dreams FC. Accra Hearts of Oak got the opening goal in Dawu through Daniel Afriyie Barnieh but had to be rescued by Salim Adams deep into stoppage time, after conceding through goalkeeping blunders and dreadful defending. The encounter - which ended in two goals apiece - handed a point to the Phobians.
Fans reactions were divergent as many craved for all points against a dilapidated Dreams FC side. The players exhibited a spirited performance to dispatch Berekum Chelsea in an outstanding league game. Kofi Kordzi’s brace pulled off three points. Coming up against Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium will add another bite to the game after playing home away from home.
Coach Samuel Boadu will go all out to fish for goals and points, making it a requirement for Kofi Kordzi and his fellow front men to deliver.
Meanwhile, Bechem United are in top shape with three points adrift of log leaders. They go into the game with complete motivation, having defeated log leaders King Faisal last weekend. A win in Accra tomorrow could elevate them to second spot depending on how events wrap up among the top three teams. To be able to cause an upset in the capital, in-form Augustine Okrah will need to maintain his stellar performance and emerge the standout for his club.
The fixture may serve all that is needed in an association football since both sides are capable of converting goal bound chances that will come their way. A win for Accra Hearts of Oak will largely uplift their confidence and elevate them on the ladder, while a win for Bechem United will make a daring statement of what they have up their sleeve.
