Hearts, Tema Youth Clash

Kosta Papic - Hearts Coach Accra Hearts of Oak would be hoping to consolidate their lead of the Glo Premiership when the eleventh week matches resume at all the league centers today.

The Phobians who have a seven-point gap lead would be seeking revenge against Tema Youth when the two clash. However, the Ghana Football Association has placed an embargo on the Tema Park so it is uncertain where the match will be played.

Both sides will be welcoming their respective players who featured for the local Black Stars during the Championship for African Nations Cup in Cote d'Ivoire but Hearts appear to be the better beneficiaries as they would be welcoming goalkeeper Philemon McCarthy, Osei Bonsu and Charles Taylor to their team.

Defending champions and title chasers, Asante Kotoko would welcome fifth placed Sekondi Eleven Wise at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium. Wise would be entering this game with a new mission as new coaches C.K Akunnor and Odartey Lamptey take charge.

The Sekondi lads are also hoping that the fine form of Rahim Ayew would be translated into gains in today's game though the Porcupine Warriors boast of defenders Samuel Inkoom and Ofosu Appiah alongside Jordan Opoku, Kwadwo Poku and Stephen Manu who all played for the local Black Stars.

In other matches, third placed Heart of Lions who have the same points as Kotoko would travel up north to battle Real Tamale United. The Kpando team would also be bolstered by the presence of Edmund Owusu Ansah and Dan Yeboah.

Elsewhere, fourth placed Berekum Arsenal would clash with Wa All Stars whilst impressive Kessben FC play as guests to Chelsea.

At the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park, Liberty Professionals would be hoping to revive their lost fortunes as they take on Kumasi King Faisal.

Sporting Mirren would also lock horns with struggling Gamba All Blacks at the El Wak Sports Stadium whilst the match between Hasaacas and Ashanti Gold at the Essipong Stadium could go either way.
