Zito: Dreams FC feat must inspire smaller clubs

 Accra Hearts of Oak will look to put their league title aspirations back on track when they take on Bibiani Gold Stars at the Ac­cra Sports Stadium tomorrow in a top match-day 24 fixture of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

The Phobians went on an eight-match unbeaten run in the league but suffered a blip in their last game against league leaders Samartex FC who grounded that run with a 2-1.

But Coach Aboubakar Ouat­tara believes the only way to respond to that defeat is to pick all three points tomorrow.

Gold Stars have not been lucky at the Accra Sports Sta­dium, losing all their previous games against the Phobians. This remains a huge inspira­tion for the Phobians going into the game tomorrow.

However, they would be playing under the instructions of Coach Frimpong Manso who defeated Hearts while with Bofoakwa Tano. That also presents an inspiration for the visitors, knowing that they have a trainer who knows his way around their guests.

League leaders Samartex FC will look to maintain their hold on the championship when they host defending champions Medeama SC at the Nsenkyire Sports Arena.

Samartex will be chasing their first win over the cham­pions in the league after losing the first-round tie 1-0.

Medeama managed to hold the Timber giants to a goalless draw at the same venue last season, however with their form, it remains to be seen how they can stop the host from grabbing all three points.

Aduana Stars hope to return to winning ways when they host Real Tamale Unit­ed at their favourite Nana Agyemang Badu Park, in Dormaa.

Coming into this game without a Head Coach, the task of beating Aduana Stars away looks daunting for the Tamale lads especially af­ter their host suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Great Olympics in their last game in Accra.

In other games, Asante Kotoko will trek to the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park in Bechem with the hope of picking their first point from their last four games; Accra Lions welcome Bofoakwa Tano to the Accra Sports Stadium; Nsoatreman FC will host Berekum Chelsea at the Nana Amoah Koronma­sah II park in Nsoatre while Karela United face Heart of Lions at the Naa Sheriga Sports Complex in Nalerigu.

The game between Dreams FC and Legon Cities scheduled for the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu has been postponed to allow Dreams FC have their CAF Confederation Cup second leg quarter-final game against Stade Malien at the Baba Yara Stadium, tomorrow.
