Match Preview: Elmina Sharks vs Hearts Of Oak.

Teams News:

Coach Kim Grant will again be without Charles MacKarthy as the midfielder is still out with illness; otherwise, the former Ghana international has a full squad to choose from as he leads the Phobians into their second game of the NC Special Competition against his former side.

Elmina Sharks are expected to be at full strength as Coach Yaw Acheampong aims to win his first game of the competition after earning a point in their opener.


Accra Hearts of Oak will look to build on their opening day win in the NC Special Competition as they trek to Elmina to face the might of Elmina Sharks at the Nduom Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

The Phobians narrowly beat Dreams FC 1-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday and, they will be high spirits as they head into their Matchday Two encounter.

Kwadwo Obeng Jnr scored the match winner for the Phobians on Sunday and the striker to hope to continue with his exploits against an Elmina Sharks side that will be expected to be very stubborn on the day.

There is a very positive feeling in the camp of the Phobians at the moment with Coach Grant imposing a very commanding style of play and, they will hope to force their play on the home side.

Elmina Sharks earned a hard-fought goalless draw game at Tema in their opening game against Inter Allies and, they will look to make things difficult for Hearts as they make their home debut in this competition.

They have been very strong at home since they joined the elite division of Ghana football a couple of seasons ago and have collected most of their points at the Nduom Stadium with Coach Acheampong being a major factor.

Sharks will have the comfort of playing in front of their home fans as they look for their first ever victory over the Phobians at Elmina in a competitive fixture.

The task that confronts them however is huge and it will require a performance of great magnitude to break down what will be a very determined and focused Hearts of Oak side.

Fans can therefore expect a very competitive affair as two unbeaten sides coached by former Ghana internationals seek to keep their record intact.
