Hearts of Oak will lock horns with Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium in the Ashanti Regional derby in a crunchy week 28 showdown of the Ghana Premier League.


Dubbed as the 'Ga-Mashie' derby, undoubtedly it is the biggest local derby in the country in terms of the history that exist between the two sides possessing 22 league titles in total.

Hearts of Oak goes into this game with so much determination to snatch all three points to maintain their lead and also pay the Olympics back having silenced the giants in the first leg.  
Great Olympics secured a vital point last week at the Crossby Awuah Memorial Park, after holding Karela United to a 1-1 draw, Samuel Ashie Quaye scoring just on the stroke of half time to cancel Diawusie Taylor's early spot-kick lead.
The 'Rainbow' outfit completed five out of five last week with a resounding 2-0 triumph over Berekum Chelsea and extended it to six in all competitions with an emphatic 3-0 win over Liberty Professionals to cruise into the last 32 of the league cup.
With the exclusion of starman Salifu Ibrahim from the Black Meteors squad, coach Samuel Boadu will have all his players fit and available to select from this afternoon without any injury and suspension worries.
On the part of Great Olympics, coach Annor has already bragged they are going to beat their 'Phobian' counterparts by hook or crook to maintain their pace in the league race.
Huge blow as the 'Dade' outfit will have to do battle without their skipper Gladson Awako who is currently in the camp of the senior national team preparing for their international friendly against Morocco and Cote D'Ivoire.
Another key member of the team in Samuel Ashie Quaye won't also be spotted in action today as he is part of the Black Meteors in Japan at the moment.
