Accra Hearts of Oak will be looking for their sixth straight win in the 2020/21 Ghana premier league as a crunchy regional derby beckons on Sunday, June 6.
The Phobians will be away to regional rivals, Great Olympics in match day 28 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The 20-times Ghana champions suffered a 2-0 defeat to their rivals in the first round and coach Samuel Boadu will not want that to occur under his watch.
“I believe that we have finished with this one [against Berekum Chelsea], this one is gone and now we are preparing towards the next match [against Great Olympics].
“We believe that Hearts of Oak is going to take that three maximum points.
“We don’t care whoever we are playing with, all that we need is to at the end of the day, take that three maximum points.
“Yeah, really we can [take that three points].” Samuel Boadu said.
All wins in their last five matches see the 2000 CAF Champions League winners lead the season’s table with 49 points, two ahead of bitter rivals, Asante Kotoko.
The 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners go into Sunday’s game with a 2-0 win against Berekum Chelsea.
The “Dade Boys” on the other hand claimed an important point at the dreaded Crosby Awuah Memorial Park against Karela United in match day 27.
A win for Great Olympics will push them just two points behind Hearts of Oak on 47.
Another win for Hearts of Oak will further increase the Phobians’ points buildup and a probable chance of winning the league for the first time in over a decade.
