Match Preview: Inter Allies Versus Hearts of Oak- Manager-less Cappeli Boys Seeking For Revenge

Inter Allies FC welcome regional rivals Hearts of Oak in another capital derby at the Tema Park with a 2-0 deficit to overcome in the first game.

The Capellii Boys have been boosted with the return of star forward Victorien Adjei Adebayor for the hit and grab regional derby in the nation’s capital.

Goals from Robert Addo Sowah and Joseph Esso earned the Phobians a 2-0 win over their neighbors in the last round of matches in the first round of the league.

Head coach of Inter Allies FC, Coach Rashid Iddi, vacated his post less than 24 hours to the kick off of that controversy laden game, citing religious concentration as the reason for his departure.

The Capelli Boys earned a 1-0 win over Hearts of Oak in the last meeting at the Tema Park and will be hoping for similar feat when the 20 times league champions storm the Tema Park later today.

A 20th minute goal from Richmond Lamptey was enough to tame the Rainbow Boys on May 31, 2018 in match day 14 of the truncated domestic championship.

Goalkeeper for the Capelli Boys in that 1-0 win, Salifu Saeed, was controversially sent off in the 2-0 defeat to Hearts of Oak and will be adding to the fans when Kim Grant and his men take to pitch in Tema.

Opposing shot stopper, Richmond Ayi, will also miss the return fixture after worsening his injury picked against Ebusua Dwarfs in their last game.

On the statistical radar, the two teams have met each other on 10 occasions, the first meeting dating back to September 29, 2013, in a 2-3 away win for Hearts of Oak.

Since that 5 goal thriller, Inter Allies have recorded just 2 wins against Hearts of Oak in 6 years. The Tema based side have won 2, lost 4 and drawn 4 of the last 10 meetings.

Three of the last 5 meetings of the sides have ended in a drawn game with 5 goals produced in the last 5 matches.

Hearts of Oak SC have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their 5 away games against Inter Allies FC.

A total of 14 goals have been scored between the two teams at the Tema Park with both teams accounting for 7 goals each.

Inter Allies FC have lost 3 matches on home soil in the last 34 topflight appearances (NC Special Competition inclusive)- Olympics, Aduana Stars and Ebusua Dwarfs, winning 22 matches along that spell.

The last capital derby defeat on home soil dated back to July 23, 2017, in a 0-1 reversal at the hands of Accra Great Olympics.

Hearts of Oak have recorded 8 away wins in the last 28 outings, the latest is a 1-0 win in Dansoman.

The Phobians are seeking for their second back to back wins in the NC special competition after breaking their winning run at Sogakope.

Kim Grant’s men won their last away capital derby with a clean sheet, Kwadwo Obeng Junior , on the sheet for the visitors in Dansoman Park.
