PLB directs Tema Youth and Hearts to clear disputed game

Listen to article

The Professional League Board has directed Accra Hearts of Oak and Tema Youth to clear the outstanding 7th Week Premier League tie on Sunday December 31st.

The match remains outstanding due to a long drawn out court battle between the GFA, Hearts of Oak and Tema Youth.

Before that though, Hearts of Oak have to face their long time rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Christmas Eve at the Cape Coast Robert Mensah Stadium to officially end the first round of the Onetouch Premiership.

Kotoko could open up a seven point lead at the top of the Premier League if they win against the Phobians.

However, Hearts could reduce the difference between the two sides to just a point with a win, and still have the advantage of one game in hand.

Hearts Chief Executive Thomas Okine is confident his side has the trump card for Sunday's game.

He is reported by the Ghanaian Times newspaper as saying his side has had the best of results in recent games between the sides and will repeat the trend.

'We beat them at Ho and Mpraeso and I can assure the fans that Cape Coast would be no exception. We will beat them again', he the paper.

Tommy is counting on a win to reward Hearts fans who he said found it difficult to come to grips with the club's withdrawal from Africa next season. Besides, victory will serve as Christmas gift.

Hearts are counting on the neutrality of the venue to inflict the loss to Kotoko, who are officially playing home after adopting the stadium following the closure of the Baba Yara Stadium.

Thomas Okine asked the club's following to throng the stadium to rally support for total victory.
