The Onetouch Premiership continues to offer thrilling but tougher challenges for not only the top cubs but also relegation threatened teams as the contest gradually draws closer with ten fixtures from the end, writes Sammy Heywood Okine.

On Sunday, the 21st week fixture will be honoured at the various centres with the match between league leaders Hearts of Oak and Feyenoord at the Swedru Stadium, emerging as the top liner.

Hearts, with 35 points at the top, have not been feeling comfortable as they are being haunted by traditional rivals Asante Kotoko (34 points) and Ashantigold (33 point). And being hosted by the youthful Feyenoord side can be a tricky assignment, despite their 14th position in the league table. However, the superiority of Hearts can overshadow the relegated threatened Gomoa Fetteh boys.

Hasaacas must put the smiles back on the faces of their fans when they host Berekum Arsenal at the Sekondi Gyandu Park whilst Great Olympics are tipped to collect the points from Gamba All Blacks at the Ho Sports Stadium.

At the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium, AshGold's home advantage will earn them the points over King Faisal and Tema Youth and Heart of Lions are likely to share the points.

Bofoakwa Tano won"t have much difficulty disposing of Power FC at the Sunyani Coronation Park but lowly-placed Real Tamale United are determined to beat Liberty Professionals at the Kaladan Park.

Asante Kotoko, who are engaged in the African Champions League against Gambia's Port Authority at Obuasi tomorrow, have their match against Real Sportive at Tema rescheduled for February 21.
