Hearts of Oak will lock horns with Techiman Eleven Wonders on Sunday in round nine of the ongoing Ghana Premier League season.

 
 

The draw in Elmina last week and Olympics victory last Friday have taken off the Phobians from the top four hoping to right their wrongs this time and command all three points to move back into the first four.

 
Also, Eleven Wonders are approaching this clash with so much confidence having marmalized Karela United 3-1 last week in a game their marksman Ibrahim Salifu proved why he is one the best on the local scene currently.
 
Astoundingly, the former African champions have picked half of the possible 24 points so far sitting 6th on the log; winning three, three draws and two loses in the ongoing season.
 
Meanwhile, the Sure Wonders despite having a good start at a point went off but are gradually gathering their pieces again as they place 8th with 10 points after eight games.
 
TEAM NEWS:
 
Hearts of Oak were handed a massive boost heading into this game with the return of Kwadwo Obeng Jnr, Nigerian Mamani Lawali and combative midfielder Abdul Aziz Nurudeen who are all fully fit and ready for action.
 
Also, Emmanuel Nettey returned after a long sideline together with Danjuma Ademola Kuti but the two are unlikely to be spotted in action against Wonders.
 
Meanwhile, coach Ignatius Osei Fosu ever since he took over the Techiman-based club have picked some shocking results including a 1-1 stalemate against Kotoko in the season opener and will hope to emulate same against the Phobians.
 
Again, starman Ibrahim Salifu has disclosed they are ever ready and poised for action against Hearts of Oak and will be coming to Accra with none other mindset than to win.
