Today`s Glo premier league bluesCan Wise stop Hearts too?

By Kofi Owusu Aduonum - Ghanaian Chronicle

If the current razor form of Sekondi Eleven Wise is anything to go by, then an arduous task confronts Hearts of Oak in today's mid-week clash at Essipong.

With their confidence soared, having snatched victory in the jaws of defeat from defending champions in the Garden City, Kumasi barely two weeks, Wise are tipped by bookmakers to replicate the dose.

Indications are that young coaches C.K. Akunnor and lieutenant Nii Odartey Lamptey are plotting another giant-killing strategy as they host the current league leaders.

Most definitely, Championship of African Nations(CHAN) revelation, Rahim Ayew likely partnership with Winfred Dormon will be the determining factor in Wise' success. But that seem a tall order considering the indomitable spirit of the Phobians, though playing on foreign soil.

Hitherto Hearts' 1-2 defeat in Tema, the Phobians have been impressive winning five successive games and their last Sunday's victory over visiting Hasaacas is a clear testament of their capability to offer a stiff opposition in today's clash. Other games will see MTN Champions league campaigners Kotoko continue their face-saving mission as they welcome Berekum Arsenals to Baba Yara, while coach Bashir Hayford leads Kessben FC against RTU at Tamale. Liberty returns to the Ohene Djan Stadium after their 2-1 victory over Ashgold to play Hasaacas with All Stars hosting bruised All Blacks.

King Faisal travel to Sunyani to play Chelsea, while Tema Youth host Heart of Lions. S.P. Mirren will take on Ashgold at the Ohene Djan Stadium tomorrow.
