Hearts of Oak are determined to avoid any delay in lifting the title when the premiership enters match-day-29 over the weekend.

Everyone knows the title is heading to the capital for the 19th time in the 96 year history of Accra Hearts of Oak.

But with a 6-point advantage over second-placed AshantiGold, Mitko Dobrev's side need only a point from their final two games to wrap up the title.

The Phobians are determined to continue with winning form from last weekend when they hurt the Lions 2-0 at home.

Hearts could clinch the title on Sunday with a win or a draw in Swedru where they battle Gamba All Blacks.

Last year the Phobians saw their archrivals, Asante Kotoko win the championship by seven points clear but will this time hope to jealously guard their lead to the finish line.

A game against the Black Magicians who are placed 11th on the table with just three points separating them from the 15th placed club is expected to be a difficult match for the Phobians.

The Black Magicians could delay the title party for a while with a win at home in the penultimate round of matches on match-day-29.

In waiting for a Phobian defeat are second-placed, AshantiGold who will be at home to Real Tamale United at the Len Clay stadium.

The Miners will seek to grind out a win to secure them a place in the Champions League and keep their title dreams on depending on the out of the game in Swedru.

Asante Kotoko, who have surrendered the title won last season after defeat last Sunday at home face another uphill task that could derail their continental ambitions.

The Porcupine Warriors who lie third on the log with just a point separating them from the second-placed club be guest at the Golden City Park to face Berekum Arsenals.

At the Kpando Park, Heart of Lions battle the premiership's underachievers, Liberty Professionals.

Real Sportive will be home to Bofoakwa Tano who are struggling to avoid the drop at the Robert Mensah stadium in Cape Coast.

The Ho sports stadium will witness the game between Great Olympics and Sekondi Hasaacas.

In Sunyani, King Faisal, who lie 15th on the table take on bottom-placed Power FC at the Coronation Park. A win for Faisal will boost their chances of staying in the premiership but first they will need to go past the relegated Power FC.

The penultimate round of matches comes off this weekend with match action beginning first the Robert Stadium in Cape Coast on Saturday where Tema Youth shrug it off with Feyenoord Academy.
