Published on: 08 February 2020

Aduana Stars will welcome Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak are the dreaded Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Sunday on match day 8 of the Ghana Premier League. 

Both clubs dropped points in midweek, with Aduana Stars shockingly losing to bottom side Aduana Stars 3-1 in Cape Coast. Hearts drew goalless with Ashantigold 24 hours later.

The Phobians have not won a game in Dormaa since February 2015, and do not have a good record in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Aduana Stars have an impeccable record at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park this season, having won all their home games this season. However two deafeats on the road has seen them slip to second position after match day 8.

Coach W.O Tandoh is unfazed by the strength of his opponents insisting the 'Ogya Boys' will beat Hearts in Dormaa.

"Playing against Accra Hearts of Oak is a special game and must be treated as such," he told Ash FM.

"We are not afraid of Hearts of Oak," he added. "We are the defending champions of the Ghana premier league and wants to defend the title once again and in doing that, there is a saying if you want to be the best,you must beat all the best and we know Hearts of Oak is one of the best clubs in Ghana so we have to beat them."

Hearts of Oak coach Edwaard Nii Odoom was disappointed by his team's profligacy in their draw against Ashantigold.

The Rainbow club have scored on three goals in their last three games, which is a cause for concern for fans of the club.

However, the Phobians will have to be weary about Aduana's attack led by Yahaya Mohammed.

In the last five meetings between both sides, Aduana have won twice with three games ending in draw.
