High-flying Accra Hearts of Oak will endeavour to make it four out of four when they meet Liberty Professionals at the Accra Stadium in match day 10 of the ongoing Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee (NC) Special Competition this afternoon.

The Phobians would be aiming for back-to-back over their regional rivals due to the one-nil victory they registered over their opponents in match day five at the Carl Reindorf Park at Dansoman.

Clearly, this may not be a difficult prediction to make, judging from how the Phobians have warmed themselves into the competition.

Their resilience has convinced many that they indeed have gone through a transformation process, especially their spectacular display against WAFA, leading to a 4-0 thrashing in Accra last Sunday.

However, Dansoman-based Liberty, who are currently fifth on the Zone B log, would seek answers to the threat their opponents pose.

The “Scientific Soccer lads” have recorded a loss and two draws in their three previous matches, but that notwithstanding, revenge would certainly be on their minds today.

Coach Reginald Asante’s side have not won any game away from home so far, except two drawn games and two losses, making it a tall order for them against Coach Kim Grant’s lads, who are having a jolly ride currently.
