iAccra Hearts of Oak will host Inter Allies FC on Sunday afternoon in the week 19 fixture of the First Capital Plus Premier League, pitting two sides from the same region against each other in what should be an intriguing clash.
Inter Allies seem to be getting the best out of Hearts of Oak after Ropapa Mensah and Gockel Ahortor’s late strike helped the ‘Eleven Is To One’ to an impressive 2-1 win last time out at the Tema Sports Stadium in the reverse fixture.
Striker Eliasu Fuseini hopes his side will come good against the Phobians after drawing the first three league games in the second round.
“They lost their previous game so they are wild, we beat them in the first round, they’re playing home too and it looks like all odds favour them but we are determined more.
“We are very positive as we need to fight harder. By doing that, there’s a reward involved.”

Prosper Kasim rejoined his colleagues at training for the first time after returning with the Black Satellites from New Zealand, FIFA U20 World Cup.
Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side will be without defender Ibrahim Alhassan, winger Imoro Adams and striker Sulley Mohammed who are recovering well from their respective injuries.
