GPL Week 4 Preview: Hearts travel to WAFA, Kotoko seek redemption against Medeama

by admin


So far, only Ashanti Gold and Aduana Stars hold a 100% record, having won each of their opening three games.

Medeama, Dreama FC, WAFA and Berekum Chelsea are also unbeaten, recording two wins and a draw thus far.

Meanwhile, favourites Asante Kotoko are not far behind with six points, after tasting defeat for the first-time last week, while Hearts of Oak also recorded their first win of the season following last Sunday’s victory over Ebusua Dwarfs.

As we gear up to matchday four of the league, Pulse Sports brings you a preview of the games:

Eight (8) games will be played on Wednesday, starting with the encounter between Inter Allies and Elmina Sharks. Inter Allies have made a dodgy start to the season, picking up a single win in three games.

Having lost 4-0 to Aduana Stars on the opening day of the season, they recovered to beat Bechem United 2-1 at home before again losing to Karela United away.

Elmina Sharks have also won just a single game this season, but are currently above their opponents with four points. This makes the counter really tricky, as Inter Allies are good home performers, while the Sharks have a patchy away form.

Asante Kotoko will also look to return to winning ways when they travel to Tarkwah to face Medeama. The Porcupine Warriors made a bright start to the season by winning their first two games.

However, they were brough back to earth last week when the tasted defeat against an energetic Berekum Chelsea side, in a game that was marred by acts of violence.

With Medeama also yet to lose a game this season, this will be a huge test for Maxwell Konadu’s men, considering the fact that the Mauves and Yellows recently humiliated Hearts of Oak by three goals to nil.

Back to Accra, Hearts of Oak will also look to make it two wins in two games when they visit WAFA. The Phobians recorded their first win of the season last week following a narrow 2-1 victory over Ebusua Dwarfs.

However, the WAFA Park has been a banana peel for Hearts in recent years, with a humiliating 5-0 thrashing two seasons ago still fresh in the minds of many fans.

The Academy Boys are one of the few teams yet to lose a game ahead of matchday four and they would definitely be hoping to keep that unbeaten run intact.

Another exciting fixture to look forward to is the game between Legon cities FC and Ashanti Gold. While the home side have upped the buzz of the league with their impeccable branding, they are yet to record a win this season.

On the contrary, Ashanti Gold have ticked all the right boxes so far, recording successive wins over Great Olympics, King Faisal and Eleven Wonders. The Miners are also joint-top of the league, alongside the high-flying Aduana Stars.

This should definitely be an exciting fixture for the neutrals.

Meanwhile, other mouthwatering fixtures to anticipate on matchday 4 include, Berekum Chelsea vs Dreams FC; King Faisal vs Bechem United; Ebusua Dwarfs vs Liberty Professionals; and Eleven Wonders vs Aduana Stars.
