Matchday six preview: Hearts and Wafa set for thriller in Ghana Special Competition

The Phobians and the Academy Boys are set to battle it out for three points in the match of the week in the novelty league

Unsurprisingly, there has been a lot of attention on Wafa's Zone B home fixture against Hearts of Oak in Sogakope as the Ghana Football Association Normalisation Committee Special Competition enters matchday six on Sunday.

Last season, the Academy Boys handed the Phobians a ruthless 5-0 away thrashing when they met at the same venue in the Premier League, in what was their worst result of the season.

The Accra-based side are looking to make amends this time around, but are rightly treading with caution as the big game beckons. 

Both teams are currently tied on points on the standings but Wafa are higher due to a better goal difference.

Elsewhere in Zone B, leaders Karela United are eyeing their fourth win in their visit to Elmina Sharks, who sit fifth on the log.

At the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park, fourth-placed Liberty Professionals will host sixth-positioned Dreams FC. Both teams failed to get a win on the last matchday.

There will be a bottom-of-the-table clash in Tema where Inter Allies will play at home to Ebusua Dwarfs. The former, who sit second from bottom, have won only one game thus far while the latter, who occupy the last spot, are still in the search for their first three points of the novelty league.

In Zone A, Ashanti Gold are aiming to beat bottom-placed Berekum Chelsea to three points away at the Golden City Park.

Two points adrift of leaders Kotoko, the Miners are sure to take over the top spot with a win as the Porcupines do not get in action until the next matchday due to postponement of their week six fixture with Stallions FC (formerly Wa All Stars).

Third-placed Aduana Stars could tie Kotoko with a win at Bechem United as only three points currently separate the Porcupines from the Fire Boys. Bechem hold the fifth position.

In Tarkwa, Kwame Boateng will hope to add to his two goals when his Medeama side host Eleven Wonders. The Yellow and Mauves sit fourth on the table whereas the Techiman-based side find themselves two places below.
