It's Hearts vs Liberty

This year's Top 4 champions, Liberty Professionals, and the newly crowned Homowo Cup champions, Accra Hearts of Oak, will clash on Sunday in the southern sector match in honour of late Finance Minister, Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu.

The match, being organised by the Retired Footballers Association of Ghana (RENFAG), is the second of two matches to bid farewell to the late minister.

This is expected to be the biggest test for Hearts' Serbian trainer, Kosta Papic, since he assumed the reins as head coach of the club, and he is promising nothing but a resounding victory over their city rivals on Sunday.

With the game coming just a week after Hearts were crowned the new champions of the Homowo Cup after thrashing Olympics 3-0, and possibly as the last game before the league season begins, the Phobia lads will seize the opportunity to silence the critics who think the team is yet to hit a devastating form.

In-form Charles Taylor, Kofi Abanga and Eric Gawu are likely to man the midfield on Sunday, while newly signed Douglas Nkrumah and David Anas will possibly lead the attack for the Phobians.

Liberty, who are no respectors of big names, have vowed to repeat the painful defeat they handed Kotoko in the Top 4 to Hearts and have warned their opponents to brace themselves for an unforgettable defeat.

Jones Attuquayefio, who knows the terrain of Hearts so well, is not perturbed by the current form of the opponent and has promised that come what may, he will secure victory over Hearts to spur his team on for the coming season.

Not even the transfer of his lead midfielder, Daniel Yeboah, is a source of worry to the former Hearts coach as he believes blending his new signings of the season and some of the old players, including Latif, Kwame Antwi and Kissi, could do the trick for him on Sunday.
