GPL Matchday 2: Hearts look to end winless streak against WAFA in Sogakope

The Ghana Premier League resumes over the weekend with a game between WAFA and Accra Hearts of Oak kicking off matchday 2.

WAFA is out for redemption after losing their opening game of the season to King Faisal at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Hearts, on the other hand, was held to a goalless draw by Legon Cities at home, a result head coach, Samuel Boadu was not happy about.

Hearts hasn’t had a winning start to the last five seasons but the subsequent games, on several occasions, have been an opportunity to get going.

The two teams will face off at the WAFA Park in Sogakope, a venue that has tormented Hearts in their last seven visits.

Despite their away struggles, Hearts has mostly had a good show against the Sogakope-based club in Accra. The latest being a 4-0 battering last season.

WAFA has recorded four wins and three draws in seven games against Hearts at the WAFA Park, scoring 12 goals and conceding just two goals in the process. The Academy lads have also kept six clean sheets during that time.

To make matters worse for Hearts, the club has scored just twice in their last three games across all competitions while conceding six times.

Boadu already cited the need to work on his side’s attack last weekend, after their game against Legon Cities. But the weekend will be an opportunity to examine whether those deficiencies were worked on or not.

But for the loss against King Faisal, WAFA had not lost any of their last six games, keeping four clean sheets during that run.

The weekend in front of their home fans will be a good platform for them to bounce back to winning ways after the setback last Sunday.

With no injuries picked up from last weekend’s games for both teams, the two coaches are likely to have a full house available for selection for Friday night’s cracker.

A win for Hearts will see them move to the top of the league table ahead of Saturday and Sunday’s fixtures.
