A former captain of the Porcupine Warriors, Joe Hendricks, has predicted a 4-0 win for Accra Hearts of Oak in Ghana’s version of El-Classico when the Phobians take on their arch-rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Monday May 2 at the Accra Sports Stadium in the Ghana Premier League.
Speaking to Class Sports, the former Kotoko defender said the current form of the Fabulous club will not be enough to stop the Accra-based club from beating them.
“I watched Kotoko in three matches against Sekondi Hasaacas, Dreams FC, and New Edubiase. If you see the way Kotoko played the last game against New Edubiase…I think if Kotoko use that performance on Monday, [Hearts will score a lot of goals].
…You remember Hearts of Oak scored Kotoko 4-0 in 2000. The players did not play well on [Saturday] and I think that 4-0 will happen again,” he stated.
Hendricks was a member of the 2003 team that won the Premier League for Kotoko.
Hearts of Oak are currently sitting second on the league log with 18 points, two points behind league leaders Wa All Stars, while Asante Kotoko are ninth on the table with 11 points after nine games.
