LIVE UPDATES: WAFA vs Hearts of Oak - Week 7

Good afternoon and welcome to Ghanaweb’s LIVE UPDATES coverage of week 7 of the Normalization Committee’s Special Competition game between the West African Football Academy versus Accra Hearts of Oak.

Premier League giants, Accra Hearts of Oak, will be hoping to break a long-standing jinx at the dreaded Sogakope Park today as they take on the Academy Boys.

The Phobians lost 0-5 two seasons ago at the same venue in the Ghana Premier League but will be seeking a much-improved result this time around but need to work extra hard to change the script.

The Rainbow Club have achieved two successive victories over Ebusua Dwarfs and Liberty Professionals despite starting the competition on a poor note.
The academy boys are second on the Southern Zone log and remain unbeaten in five matches, having won twice and drawn three times, making this afternoon’s clash with Hearts a fine opportunity for them to climb up to the top of the table with a win.

With an impressive home record to boast of, WAFA start as favourites, and Coach Kim Grant must devise an effective strategy to stop the high-flying WAFA side.

In other matches, Liberty Professionals welcome Dreams FC to the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park as they hope to bounce back from a disappointing 1-2 loss to city rivals, Hearts, last Sunday in another exciting Group B match.

Leaders, Karela United, are visitors at the Nduom Sports Complex as they slug it out with Elmina Sharks in a close contest, whiles Ebusua Dwarfs visit the Tema Stadium to lock horns with Inter Allies.

In the Northern Zone, Bechem United clash with Aduana Stars in a regional derby at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park, while Ashantigold, after their narrow 1-0 win over Medeama last Sunday, will play as guests of Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park in another exciting fixture, while Medeama, also, welcome Techiman Eleven Wonders to the T&A Park.
