Giants Accra Hearts of Oak are struggling to raise a team for their betPawa Premier League gameweek 14 clash with Medeama at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa on Saturday, January 28.

The Phobians are in dire need of a change of fortune having failed to score or win any of their last 3 games in all competitions, including a FA Cup defeat in the hands of Dreams FC last Sunday.

The club’s problems have compounded, with management struggling to raise a team for Saturday’s league game against Medeama in Tarkwa.

Hearts of Oak currently have 5 of their players with the Black Galaxies in Algeria for the 2022 TotalEnergies Championship of African Nations (CHAN).

The players include Gladson Awako, Seidu Suraj, Konadu Yiadom, Dennis Korsah and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who will officially be transferred to FC Zurich after the CHAN.

Hearts of Oak as well have numerous players on the sidelines. In Sunday’s game against Dreams FC, the Phobians managed to raise only 16 players for the game, with 3 of 16 players being goalkeepers

Caleb Amankwah and Isaac Mensah missed the game due to varied injuries. Gideon Asante and Linda Mtange as well missed the game due to sickness.

The Phobians in the course of the game on Sunday were forced into making two changes due to injuries, Robert Addo Sowah and Salifu Ibrahim the casualties.

The situation leaves Slavko Matic with a slim squad for this weekend’s trip to Tarkwa. Hearts of Oak hasn’t won against Medeama in Tarkwa since 2016 and the club’s current situation makes ending that poor run a difficult task.
