Great Olympics captain, Gladson Awako, says he is confident of a win ahead of their matchday 11 game against regional rivals, Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

Olympics will be hosted by Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium as they battle to show supremacy.

Awako, a FIFA U-20 World Cup winner has been in a good shape for the two times Ghana Premier League champions in the ongoing 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season.

According to him, his side are in fine form and confidence was running deep in the side to defeat Hearts this season, and believes the results will be different in this season’s encounter.

He stressed that he is looking forward to proving a point in the Accra derby since those clashes always brought out the best in players.

“I can’t wait for that clash, it is going to be a tough contest and I can assure you that it is definitely going to be a different result this time around," he told Graphic Sports.

“This is a derby match over who rules Accra and we want to prove a point that we are the best in the capital by beating them. That is the only way to do that,” Awako added.

Both Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics failed to win the games over the weekend with both clubs picking a point fro their games.

Hearts thrashed Olympics 4-0 in last season’s truncated league, but the Wonder Club’s impressive display this term could make the Accra derby a mouth-watering clash.

Hearts of Oak sit on the 2nd position with 16 points whiles Great Olympics also sit on the 7th position with 15 points on the league log.
