ZCPL PREVIEW: Inter Allies Host Hearts In A Cagey Accra Derby

Inter Allies will welcome Hearts of Oak in a crucial Week 14 game in the Zylofon Cash Premier League to the Tema Sports Stadium on Thursday 30th, May 2018 at 3:00PM.

The Capelli folks are heading into the game with confidence high after two slim wins on the bounce in the premier league against Wa All Stars (1-0) and MTN FA Cup against Immigration FC (1-0).

Inter Allies sit 5th on the league standings with 21 points from 13 games and a victory against Hearts of Oak will take them up to second.

Kenichi’s men have won their last two Home games against Ebusua Dwarfs (2-0) and (1-0) against Berekum Chelsea respectively.

The Phobians, on the other hand, have also gained a bit of confidence following two positive results against WAFA (0-0) in the premier league and (0-1) against Accra Young Wise in the Round of 32 of the MTN FA Cup last weekend and a win against the Capelli Boys will lift them to eight.

Hearts of Oak are currently occupying the 11th spot with 16pts , nine points away from the drop zone.

Henry Wellington’s men have lost and won two of their away fixtures, (3-1) against Karela United and (1-0) against Asante Kotoko.

The two clubs have met on six occasions in the premier league. The Homers have managed just one victory with the Visitors also recording one win with four ending in a draw.

The last time the two rub shoulders at the Tema Stadium was two seasons ago where Hearts of Oak under coach, Kenichi Yatsuhashi run away with all three points. The game ended 3-2. Both drew 0-0 at the El-wak Sports Stadium in Accra last season.

In other exciting pairings, Revive Liberty Professionals will be looking to make it three wins on the trot when they take on Asante Kotoko at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman. It will be a feisty battle when West African Football Academy (WAFA) shrug it out with High-flying Karela FC at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope with Ashanti Gold playing host to Champions-league chasing Dreams FC at the Lenclay Stadium in Obuasi.

Elsewhere, Ebusua Dwarfs will be aiming to improve on their wretched start to the league as they travel to face Elmina Sharks in a Central Regional derby at the Nduom Sports Complex whereas League leaders, Medeama SC will look to put more misery on Wa All Stars when they engage them at the T and A Park in Tarkwa.

Tenth-placed Bechem United will face-off with an Aduana Stars who have three games at hand at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa Ahenkro whiles Relegation-threatened Eleven Wonders will go boot-to-boot with Berekum Chelsea at the Nana Ameyaw Park in Techiman.
