GPL 2019/20 match preview : Medeama SC vs Hearts of Oak

The Mauve and Yellows will be desperate to build on the opening day win at Ebusua Dwarfs to maintain a perfect record in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.

There are no suspensions as we battle the Phobians at the Akoon Community Park.

However, the team is still without midfield duo Eric Kwakwa and Rashid Nortey as well as defender Bright Enchil, who is out injured.

Striker Kalibo Toussaint is also not available for the crunch tie at home.

However, its a massive game for the Phobians who have won just once in a league match in Tarkwa in nine attempts.

Medeama should be in a confident mood after recording an impressive 3-1 win at Ebusua Dwarfs in their opening league match last week.
