GPL Matchday Five: Hearts vs Dreams FC

By George Osei

Accra Hearts of Oak will look for a first win of the season when we play Dreams FC in a Ghana Premier League (GPL) Matchday Five fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

This will be Hearts' fourth game of the 2020-21 GPL campaign with the Phobians having a game in hand against Aduana Stars to be played at Dormaa Ahenkro on December 16.

In the three matches played so far by the capital club, Hearts have drawn two and lost one, scoring two goals with three against. Hearts will aim for a first win of the campaign in this fixture against Dreams FC.

Coach Kosta Papic has a full squad to choose from with with reports of injury or illness reported at training this week. The boys should therefore be battle ready to contest for the three points on Sunday afternoon.

Dreams FC have five points from the four games they have played this season, scoring three goals with the same number conceded. They have in their fold former Hearts of Oak player Joseph Esso who has scored two of the three goals they have netted.

Coming up against Hearts of Oak, they will be expected to provide stubborn resistance as they attempt to register their second win of the campaign.

Hearts however should see this one through after a hard day's work and with it, bring the campaign back on truck as we challenge for the ultimate at the end of the season.
