Assistant Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Henry Wellington says he is confident of victory against regional rivals Tema Youth in the Match Day 24 of the Ghana Premier but admits it will be a tough game.
Accra Hearts of Oak will host Tema Youth as they intensify their pursuit of the league title. They lie third and a win will close the gap between them and League leaders WAFA who will not be in action this weekend after their game was postponed.
Meanwhile, Tema Youth are two points above relegation and have been on a decent run of form in the second round.
However, Assistant Coach of Hearts Henry Wellington has assured the fans of the club of victory.
“We lost 2-1 to them in the first round and they might wish to beat us again as they are not safe on the league log.We must go into the game with a winning mentality,” Wellington told footballmadeinghana.com
“We have some few injuries in camp but I believe it will not affect us much as we have equally good replacements. Inusah Musah has not even started training whilst Lukeman Bright and the Ivorian import Alex Kouassi’s fitness have not been all that good,”
He added: “We are going to win so I will urge the fans to be calm and come in their numbers to cheer us.”
The Phobians last won the league title in the 2007 season and have since struggled win trophy.
