Ghana Premier League Preview: WAFA SC vs Hearts of Oak- Phobians unbeaten away record under huge threat

West African Football Academy will come up against leaders Hearts of Oak at the Sogakope Park on Saturday.

The Academy side have not lost at home this season and will need to take advantage of that to win this fixture meanwhile the Phobians are also unbeaten at away this campaign.

Majeed Ashimeru is expected to make a strong return for WAFA SC on Saturday after four months absence with a knee injury.

WAFA SC are seeking their first ever victory over the Phobians since they joined the top flight in 2004.

Hearts of Oak will go into the crunchy fixture on Saturday afternoon without key centre back Inusah Musa.

He was sent off against Ashanti Gold SC a fortnight ago.

They have received a huge boost ahead of their visit to Sogakope with the comeback of top scorer Cosmos Dauda.

He missed matches against Asante Kotoko and Ashanti Gold SC respectively.

The former Tudu Mighty Jets striker is the top scoring player at away in the premiership this season with six.

He is expected to net again on Saturday against WAFA SC.

Anything short of win could see the Phobians drop from the summit of the log after this weekend's fixtures.
