Heart of Lions won't loosen grip on second spot
By Simon Amonoo
Heart of Lions say they are determined to hold onto second place position as the First Capital Plus Premier League reaches homestretch.
The Kpando-based side were brought down to earth last Saturday when they crashed to a 4-1 defeat at Ebusua Dwarfs in Cape Coast.
Lions are tied on 41 points with third-placed Hearts of Oak but have played one match less.
But Medeama, who have four games in hand including a match against Lions, are the genuine contenders to finish second.
But Lions are still remaining confident of picking up the other CAF Champions League slot for next season.
“Looking at the league table, we can’t be first, so we have to maintain the second position,” Heart of Lions General Manager Yashin Laryea told New Mercury FM in Kumasi.
“If we can’t have the first position we have to maintain the second position.”
