Chairman of the National Chapters Committee (NCC), Elvis Herman Hesse says it will take be very difficult for clubs to beat Hearts of Oak at the moment.

The Phobians are on a terrific run of form after winning five games on the bounce without conceding a goal. Their superb form has seen them leapfrog Asante Kotoko to the top with two points difference.

Optimism in the camp of Hearts is increasingly growing as they see the current season as a chance to win the league and end their 12-year wait for a title.

Speaking in an interview with Joy Sports, Herman says it will be very difficult for clubs to overcome Hearts at this point in time.

“We have to say kudos to the technical team lead by coach Samuel Boadu and the players, they’ve done marvellous. From the beginning we knew we had the best of players, we had the best team to win the league but just that there were some few issues back then and we’ve been able to sort them out. There is unity in Accra Hearts of Oak and it will be very very difficult for anybody to overcome us at this moment.”

The 20-time Ghana Premier League champions will be hoping to extend their stay at the top as they take on city rivals, Accra Great Olympics in the Ga Mashie Derby at the Accra Sports Stadium.
