- Hearts play host to Bechem United on Sunday in the GPL
- Hearts changed their mind to increase their gate fees by 100%
- Eric Kumi, Samudeen and Richard Yamoah are all joining their colleagues
- Hearts' PRO, Opare Addo says the team's improvement is due to the dedication of manager Kenichi to see that department grow
Accra Hearts of Oak will return to their favourite Accra Sports stadium on Sunday as they play host to Bechem United in the 4 week of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
The Phobians expect a packed stadium by their teeming supporters after the club administrators back tracked on their 100% gate fee hike. The decision by Hearts to increase their gate fees received some criticisms from a section of their fans.
With players like Eric Kumi, Samudeen Ibrahim, and Richard Yamoah who are all set to return to the team’s set up, coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi’s team are likely to put their winning instincts back on after drawing 0-0 with Ebusua Dwarfs last week in Cape Coast.
Samudeen Ibrahim and Yamoah are making returns from injury and Kumi is joining his colleagues from suspension due to a red card he attracted in their 2-0 win over Medeama.
Bechem United expect to have back their key defender, Felix Kwakye and look motivated to test the resilience of Hearts’ ‘Sushi’ tactics brought to bear on the team by their Japanese coach.
Hearts are in fine form and look far different from the side that lost pre-season matches to the discomfiture of their supporters.

Their massive improvement in form is due to huge changes their trainer Keni has taken the team trough, especially, the stamina of the team.
Opare Addo, the club’s PRO told Class FM, that what Kenichi does is, improved upon every department of the team and it is also his aim to “improve upon every game and make sure that every opponent we meet, we can say that they have been victims of our good work.”
Hearts are therefore poised to win their second game running at home on Sunday.
