Medeama have received a quadruple injury boost ahead of our mouth-watering Premier League clash giants Hearts of Oak with news that four injured stars have recovered in time for the massive showdown.
Midfielders Manuel Mantey and Godknows Dzakpasu have both been absent for much of the past month while defenders Baba Musah Abdulai and Ebenezer Nkrumah have missed the last three matches as the team was ravaged by injuries to top stars of the team.
Now, though the four players are back in contention as Medeama travelled to Accra on Tuesday to battle giants Hearts of Oak.
Mantey, 19, is yet to feature for the side since he suffered an injury in the side’s Premier League opener against Accra Lions back in September.
The talented midfielder has gone on to miss six other matches on the domestic front as well as the CAF Champions League success over Guinea powerhouse Horoya AC.
However, coach Evans Augustine Adotey has been boosted by the timely return of the hugely talented midfielder to his team ahead of the epic match against the giants.
Mantey’s absence had sparked a wave of concern in Tarkwa as they struggled for stability at the heart of the park without him and is return will be a massive relief to their fans back home.
He is hugely regarded in Tarkwa and considered the jigsaw in the Medeama set-up – clocking impressive numbers since his arrival. The return of Godknows Dzakpasu, Baba Musah Abdulai and Ebenezer Nkrumah, who scored a belter against Bechem United should boost the team ahead of the hugely anticipated clash.
Hearts are firmly rooted in the relegation zone with jus six points from seven games with an outstanding against Heart of Lions looming.
Medeama are 8th on the table with 10 points from seven games with an outstanding match against Nsoatreman FC in the offing. The two teams are expected to sold out an entertaining match at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
