Medeama coach Carlos Paullete eyes Hearts scalp in outstanding Premier League fixture
Carlos Roberto Paullete is confident Medeama can buck the trend when they host Hearts in an outstanding First Capital Plus Premier League fixture on Wednesday.
The Mauve and Yellows are back in front of their home fans after their 2-1 defeat at Moroccan side Maghreb de Fes in the CAF Confederation Cup return leg last Saturday.
The ambitious Ghanaian side qualified to the next stage of the competition on a 4-2 aggregate win but will have Hearts to contend with on their return to domestic action.
The Tarkwa-based side will be desperate for the maximum points as they push for a top-four finish.
Peruvian trainer Carlos Roberto Paullete remains defiant about their chances and says his side is showing signs of ‘building something special’.
“We are at home and we need to make it count. We have a lot of confidence playing in front of our fans and we must take that into the game,” he told the club’s official website.
“This is a team in progress and so we’ll keep working hard. The last time we lost to Kotoko here but we must be careful this time around.
“We cannot continue to slip at home. That obviously will not be good for us. We have to keep fighting hard.
“Hearts will be tough because they won their last game, but we must take the game to them and see how it goes.
“I believe we’re in the process of building something special in Tarkwa here. Give us a year or so and we shall all see the results.”
The home side will move within five points of their opponent if they negotiate the tie at the Tarkwa and Aboso Park.
