The Phobians recorded an important 1-0 win over Techiman Eleven Wonders to move to the top of the league table.
Hearts of Oak will win the league if they beat Kotoko – Don Bortey
Hearts of Oak legend Bernard Don Bortey says the club will win this season’s Ghana Premier League if they beat rivals Asante Kotoko.
This is the first time in five years that Hearts are occupying the top of the league, having struggled in recent years.
Rivals Asante Kotoko’s failure to beat WAFA last Thursday meant the Phobians ended matchday 26 as league leaders.
Hearts and Kotoko drew in the first round and will clash again on matchday 31, in a game that could decide which side is crowned champions.
Don Bortey believes that clash will be the title decider and has tipped Hearts to go ahead and win the league if they beat the Porcupine Warriors.
“With the nine games remaining they [Hearts] should win seven and even draw two of the games. If they win the game against Kotoko they have won the league,” Don Bortey told Hearts TV on GTV Sports plus.
Hearts will face Berekum Chelsea in their next league game on Sunday, while Kotoko will play Aduana Stars.
