LIVE UPDATES: Hearts vs Liberty, Kotoko vs Dwarfs

Hello good afternoon and welcome to our extensive coverage of the Ghana Premier League which enters Matchday 5 this weekend.

One of the top liners this afternoon will be in Dansoman where Accra Hearts of Oak make a short journey to face Liberty Professionals.

The Match Week 5 encounter comes at a time when Coach Edward Nii Odoom’s side seems to have found a way to overcome their wobbly start; one that cost Head Coach Kim Grant his job.

In their last two games, Hearts have picked up 4 points -a win against Dwarfs at home and a draw against WAFA at Sogakope. That’s quite a remarkable turnaround after they suffered two defeats in their opening two games of the campaign.

The Scientific Soccer Lads have 5 goals in the 4 matches played with 3 of them coming at home. They, however, have their own demons to exorcise as Hearts come to town.

Liberty has kept just one clean sheet (a goalless draw at Berekum against Chelsea). They have conceded at least a goal in all but one of the 4 games played. What makes this more intriguing is they have failed to keep a clean sheet at home, a record that will make Hearts of Oak confident going into the encounter.

Elsewhere, Asante Kotoko will start serving their stadium ban against struggling side Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The club have been banned and will play five home matches behind closed doors due to the shooting incident which left one fan badly injured last weekend after their defeat against Berekum Chelsea.

Maxwell Konadu looks to be under early pressure and his side has failed to match his feat during his previous spell at the club.

In the 2011/12 season, Kotoko only lost three games under Maxwell Konadu. His team has already lost two games after matchday 4 this season as the Kumasi based side now sit 9th on the table.

The Porcupine Warriors desperately need a boost and the upcoming clash against Dwarfs may provide it.

Stay with us for all the updates.

Aduana Stars vs Legon Cities

Dreams FC vs Medeama

Inter Allies vs WAFA
