Hearts of Oak will be hosting Medeama SC in the penultimate game of the 2016 Ghana Premier League which will come off at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Hearts of Oak in the first round fixture made history as they beat Medeama 2-0 in Tarkwa – which happens to be the first win for the Accra giants at Medeama’s backyard.

The two clubs will be going into the game with the aim of cementing their position in the top four as they are out for the race of the league title.

The Phobians in their last game ended their seven games winless streak with a 1-0 home win over Ebusua Dwarfs while the Mauve and Yellows settled for a pulsating 1-1 drawn game with Asante Kotoko in Tarkwa.

The last time, the Phobians recorded a home win against Medeama was three seasons ago when they won 2-1 in Accra.

And Inusah Musah believes that, the Phobians has the men to beat Medeama at home.

“We have to end the season well, that game will be our last home game so we have to make the supporters happy. It will be a tough game but we will beat them for the three points,” Musah told

“In the first round we won against them at their own backyard, so we are determined to beat them again because we have the men to do that.”

Though the odds will be against Medeama, but their best player in the ongoing campaign Akwasi Donsu is optimistic of his side’s win over the Phobians.

“It is an away game and interms of support Hearts of Oak will have it, but we will not be perturbed because our aim is to be them. I’m sure of a win against them no matter what they will do.”
