We’ll beat Hearts again – Sackey

The skipper of Accra Great Olympics, Philip Nii Kojo Sackey, is confident of another scalp against the regional rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak, in a match day two clash of the betPawa Ghana Premier League (GPL).

The ‘Accra Derby’ would take centre stage this weekend when Great Olympics, who won the first league match against Bechem United, face off against Hearts.

The Phobians lost their opening day fixture against Aduana Stars and would look to bounce back in style with pressure mounting on Head Coach, Samuel Boadu.

Speaking in a post-match press conference after their 1-0 victory against Bechem United, Sackey was confident of a positive outcome in Sunday’s clash.

“Last season I told them we were going to beat them and we did. It won’t be different from this season. I can’t predict the scoreline, but we are going to take all three points,” he said.

Meanwhile, Yaw Preko, Head Coach of Olympics, says winning the league title and the FA Cup is an achievable target for his side.

The ‘Wonder Club’ made an impressive start to the betPawa Ghana Premier League (GPL) after beating Bechem United 1-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

According to Coach Preko, the team had to aim at making an impact this season, and winning the double could be achievable, considering the quality we have.

“You can’t start a season without aiming at something. We have to do better in both competitions, and I think winning the league is achievable,” he said.

The former Ghana international added that their least target was to make the top four. 

Sharing his thoughts about the first game of the season, Yaw Preko described his opponents, Bechem United, as a very good side in terms of possessing but commended his side for securing the maximum three points.  

“Most often the first game of the season is a bit scrappy, but I am happy with the win and we will look to build on it,” he said. –GNA
