New Edubiase United

New Edubiase United are out to block Hearts of Oak's Top 4 ambitions as they plan to finish the season with a victory on Sunday at the Bekwai Gyamfi's Park despite being relegated.

The Movers exited the scenes of top flight football in the country with about four matches to the end of the season.

They will play in Ghana's second tier league next term.

They suffered their heaviest defeat of the season in midweek when they were thrashed 5-1 by Ebusua Dwarfs.

Experienced duo Nasir Lamine and Bismark Idan won't be available for Sunday's clash with the Phobians through suspension.

They were sent off against Ebusua Dwarfs last Wednesday.

Hearts of Oak want to make good use of New Edubiase United's slump to seal their place in the top four of the premiership on Sunday.

Their target of achieving a top four spot got dented in the midweek when they lost at home to Medeama SC.

A draw or lose could see bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko finished above them this season.

Top scorer Cosmos Dauda remains sidelined with an injury.

He has failed to make an appearance in the last four games for the Phobians.
