Hearts of Oak will taste defeat at Tamale on Sunday - Claims RTU

Ghana Premier League, (GPL) side Real Tamale United, (RTU) have vowed to beat reigning Champions Accra Hearts of Oak in their league encounter at the weekend.

The 'Pride of the North' insists their guests will not escape defeat as they visit the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium on Sunday.

This will be the last away game for the Phobians in the first round of the competition as the 2021-22 season reaches the halfway point.

And, RTU intends to make it a not too pleasant visit for the GPL champions up north on Sunday as they seek to move up the table.

"It is going to be a different ball game for the rest of our home matches beginning on Sunday when we welcome Hearts of Oak to Tamale," Coach Shaibu Tanko said after their last game.

That was a 2-0 setback away to King Faisal Babes in Kumasi last Sunday, a defeat that leaves them in 12th position on the table with 19 points from the 16 matches they have played.

"Things will turn around for us in the second round of the campaign and, I am positive that teams will fear playing us at home," Coach Tanko added.

After a bright start to the season on their return to the Ghanaian top-flight after 13 years, RTU has picked just four points from the last 15 available.

They will need to do more in the second round of the campaign if they hope to survive the GPL for another season at least.

And, they will look to close this first half of this campaign on a high with a win over the champions whose title defence is not going according to plan after yet another defeat in the Accra derby against Great Olympics last Sunday.
