Edubiase out to halt Hearts' league charge

New Edubiase President Abdul Salam Yakubu is banking on the quality of his team to put the brakes on Hearts of Oak.

Hearts, who trail rivals Asante Kotoko by goal difference at the league’s summit are yet to lose a match this season.

However, Yakubu who led his Berkwai-based to a famous victory over Hearts in this fixture last season insists the dose will be repeated.

“It is true no team has been able to beat Hearts this season but trust me, the quality of the players we possess are too good to get beat by Hearts,” he told Asempa FM.

“Most of last season’s players have been maintained in the team and in fact we have recruited even more quality players.

“We currently have the best midfield in the Premier League therefore I see no reason why we cannot beat Hearts on Sunday.”

Both teams could seize the league’s top-spot with a victory in Sunday’s late Premier League kickoff.

    R u sure u can do that? do u really think u have the best midfield in the league? i wonder if you have watched Kotoko's matches? i think they have the best midfield so far. I know he will talk alot for now, but i hope he won't blame the referee when Hearts beat them 2-0 this sunday? this season is for the big boyz.
