Posted: 19 April 2011 Time: 11:06 am
Accra Hearts of Oak will return to action in the Glo Premier League on Wednesday determined to pick themselves up from the relegation scrap they are getting involved in.
With seven matches to the end of the campaign, the Phobians who are more used to challenging for League honors are having to battle to preserve their top flight status. They sit one point above the final relegation spot and increasingly worried that in their centenary year, they could be heading out of a league they have bossed for so often. Their striker Mahatma Otoo, on international duty with Ghana at the Africa Youth Championships insists they will beat the drop and that they are too good to go down. In the course of the season they have not showed that. Dwarfs, in their first season back in the top flight have had a much better campaign and are four points clear of the Phobians. They provide the opposition at the Ohene Djan Stadium on Wednesday determined to keep that good run on course. Defeat for Hearts in front of their own fans will be disaster in every measure. King Faisal will be looking to give themselves a chance of beating the drop too when they take on Wa All Stars in Kumasi while RTU will have similar ambitions of preserving their three decade old top flight status with inform Asante Kotoko the visitors. RTU like Hearts of Oak have done a lot of talk about being too good to go down but have not produced the result to back it up. Liberty Professionals have done their survival hopes a lot of good but must negotiate another six pointer against Berekum Arsenal in Berekum. Berekum Chelsea look all set to become League Champions with their 13 point lead and head into the Brong Ahafo derby against defending champions Aduana Stars in good health. Aduana meanwhile need the points to boost their chances of finishing in the top four thus season.
