Ghana’s title race is set for an intriguing photo finish as four teams are in the hunt for the title with 5 games remaining and two points separating the top four.
We assess the road for Kotoko who are currently fourth
Hearts have three home games and two away games.
INTER ALLIES (HOME)
Hearts face Inter Allies buoyed by their draw in Wa and their Palm Sunday comeback against the Tema side but the Phobians home form has been nothing short of unimpressive. Hearts have managed only five wins in Accra and with Inter Allies in dire need points for survival, this could rather be daunting for the Phobians.
BECHEM UNITED (AWAY)
It does not get any easier for Hearts as they journey to Bechem to face in form Bechem United with their deadly duo of Abednego Tetteh and Yaw Arnol. If any club can pull magic on the road, then it is the Phobians making for an intriguing game.
Then the Phobians return to Accra for part one of a double header. They face Dwarfs who seem to be the team of the second round. First round ended goalless but a lot has changed since then. Coaches have changed and more importantly the Cape Coast side seem to have momentum on their side.
Second successive home game for the Phobians against a Medeama side who seem to be unpredictable, Hearts won 2-0 in Tarkwa and must win at all cost should they want the league title but once again, their home form has not been pretty impressive.
NEW EDUBIASE (AWAY)
Edubiase could be relegated by the time this fixture is played and that could make for a much more comfortable game for the Phobians but should the Bekwai side be harboring survival hopes on this last matchday, trust that the Phobians will be in for a massive clash. Sam Yeboah decided the first round in favor of the Phobians.
