Can Legon Cities upset Hearts?

Accra Hearts of Oak will host Le­gon Cities in their midweek betPawa Ghana Premier League (GPL) fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium today in a match day 15 clash.

The Phobians would hope to win as they aim to dethrone league leaders Aduana Stars and second placed Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the summit of the table.

Hearts are beaming with confi­dence ahead of the game, follow­ing their 1-0 victory over Medeama in the weekend’s top-liner and would go all out for a consecutive win against a struggling Legon Cities side.

The Phobians are exhibiting some flamboyant football under Serbian coach Matic Slavko and another win place them in the race for the league title.
