Hearts keen on bust Chelsea's bubble

Hearts of Oak are keen on finishing second but face a tough fixture schedule in the season close-in games.

The Phobians travel to the Golden City Park where they must beat Berekum Chelsea in Thursday's outstanding match-day-28 Glo Premier League clash.

With the league title having been taken to Kumasi by their rivals, Asante Kotoko, Hearts, who are third on the standings know that their only consolation in the Premier League will be to finish second.

Hearts of Oak captain, Godwin Osei Bonsu is predicting a tough test for his side against a Chelsea team, who made history over the weekend by becoming the third Ghanaian club side to reach the mini-league phase of the CAF Champions League.

And a game against the former champions, who are yet to replicate their continental campaign form on the domestic front is expected to be tough as the season gradually winds down.

Both sides drew goalless in the reverse fixture but for Osei Bonsu, the Phobians will have to win every game till the season comes to end on May 27.

"Every game is a must-win. We have to try our best, they have been in good form, on a very impressive run and it will be a tough game for us," Osei Bonsu said ahead of Thursday's game.

"They are beaming with confidence after qualifying to the money zone[in CAF Champions League], and I hope they will still be in that mood so we will take advantage of the situation to collect the three points."
