Accra Hearts of Oak and Bechem United will clash at the Accra Sports Stadium tomorrow in a top 10th week fixture of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

Coincidentally, both stars are coming after lone goal losses in ninth week and would seek to return to winning ways.

Hearts lost narrowly to Berekum Chelsea at Berekum while handed WAFA their second away win of the season with a 1-0 victory at Bechem.

On paper, Bechem appear the better side leading the Phobians on the league table with 14 points in fifth position with Hearts trailing in eighth position with 12 points.

However, who is superior can only be decided on the field of play where Hearts look the strongest and it will take a lot of energy from Bechem to prove otherwise.

League leaders Kumasi Asante Kotoko failed to account for the stubborn Inter Allies at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and would seek to make amends at Tarkwa where they take on local side, Medeama SC.

Despite enjoying a smooth run in the competition, the manner in which Kotoko struggle before pulling solitary wins have often drawn concerns from their supporters and the game against the Tema lads was no exception.

They have a tall mountain to climb playing as guests of Medeama who seem to be finding their feet in the competition.

At the Elwak Sports Stadium, Inter Allies will come face to face against Berekum Chelsea as Dwarfs returns to their Cape Coast base to face Tema Youth.

Wa All Stars must be ready to face a reinvigorated Olympics side at the Wa Park as the visiting team hopes to sustain the performance that won them their first home game on Sunday.

Despite the win, Olympics would be the first to admit they were poor despite the win over Dwarfs.

At Wa, the terrain will be different and would need to put up an improved performance against the defending champions to come home with a point.

Bolga All Stars will oblige Elmina Sharks to the Tamale Utrecht Academy Park while WAFA look set to upset Ashantigold with Liberty home against Aduana Stars.
