Accra Hearts of Oak return to the capital city after losing 1-2 to the Miners in Obuasi to host bruised Amidaus in one of Glo Premier League top liners for this weekend.
The Obuasi loss was Hearts’ first in the second round- an indication of an improved side despite their position on the league log.
The Phobians are 13th after recording 26 points.
A second streak defeat in front of home crowd appears to be out Hearts’ books as they face the Tema-based club.
Current top scorer Mahatma Otoo seems well motivated to stretch his lead, and so are Coach David Duncan and the playing body who failed to pick a deserving point due to a defensive error.
In similar fashion, Amidaus’ quest to avoid a second successive loss is what raises the stakes regardless of the venue.
A difficult assignment awaits Asante Kotoko in Bekwai where they will clash with the Abdul Salam Yakubu men- New Edubiase.
Kotoko struggled to clinch all points when they hosted Ebusua Dwarfs exactly a week ago, and Edubiase are fired up to send Kotoko back home empty-handed.
All Stars will stay home to battle second-placed Berekum Chelsea, while bottom-placed RTU trek to Cape Coast to face Ebusua Dwarfs.
At the Tema Park, Liberty Professionals will be the guests of Tema Youth with current leaders Medeama SC hosting in-form Ashgold at the T&A Park.
Berekum Arsenals will welcome Heart of Lions to the Golden City Park, while King Faisal host Aduana Stars.
