Bechem United Determined To Halt Hearts Of Oak
Posted On Saturday, 5th October 2013
Hearts face a resurgent Bechem United side in a stern Ghana Premier League examination on Saturday.
The Phobians trail leaders Kotoko by three points and will be desperate to win to keep the heat on their sworn rivals in the title chase.
They recorded a nervy 2-1 win over struggling Hasaacas on Wednesday to maintain an impressive start to the season.
Hearts coach David Duncan must decide on the situation with goalkeepers Tetteh Luggard and Philemon McCarthy.
Duncan was forced to replace Luggard at the start of the second half to avoid fans backlash during their win over Hasaacas – a claim which has been disputed by the under-fire goalie, who insists the substitution was at his request.
Hearts they face a tricky test against a Bechem United side which is on the rise after their early slips.
The Premier League returnees find themselves in the top-four after they pulled off a massive shock to beat Aduana Stars 2-1 at Dorma with ten men.
Confidence level is up and high ahead of the visit of the former African champions and will relish a unique opportunity to be counted among the giant killers of Ghanaian football.
