Medeama host Hearts of Oak in an explosive Ghana Premier League fixture at the Akoon Community Park in Tarkwa on Saturday January 28.

Umar Rabi’s side are desperate to return to winning ways and restore confidence after their painful last-gasp defeat at Bechem United on January 14.

The Tamale-born gaffer has a clean bill of health heading into the fixture with midfielder Manuel Mantey,  the only player unfit for the titanic clash in the mining town.

After a brilliant start to the season, winning their opening two matches, the Mauve and Yellow suffered four successive defeats which culminated in a dreadful outlook this season.

But the ship appears to be sailing smoothly under Umar Rabi – who has taken over on a permanent role after the departure of David Duncan.

Anything short of victory for Medeama will be disastrous with our precarious 10th position raising concerns in the West African nation.

The Akoon Community park will come alive on Saturday as the two giants battle each other.
