The Phobians are hoping to end their six-year run without any major trophy but they must first jump over a significant obstacle this weekend
Medeama ‘s trip to Accra to face Hearts of Oak on matchday two of the 2017 Ghana Premier League will be a real examination of the two clubs’ title credentials after their performances on opening day.
The Yellow and Mauve saw almost half of their first-team players leaving after last season, but the new additions have been able to show their quality, applying the brakes on the young and energetic Wafa players by defeating them 1-0 at the T&A Park on the opening day.
Hearts on the other hand, failed to find the back of the net against Inter Allies as they shared the spoils in a goalless draw in Tema.
It’s true that one game doesn’t make a season, but so far, the campaign could hardly have gone any better for Medeama. However, although coach Evans Adotey will be happy, he revealed that his side were not fully stretched by Wafa.
The manager will be hoping that the early momentum built up by his side will allow them to pick another win against the Phobians this weekend, as they look to make an early statement of their title ambitions.
Hearts have already made it clear that their ambition is the title and their desire to take the goal has been evidenced in their significant transfer business during the offseason.
