Jimmy Cobblah's ghost out to haunt Hearts of Oak again

Published on: 19 August 2016

Inter Allies head trainer, Jimmy Cobblah has declared that he is the bogey man for Hearts of Oak as the two clubs face off on Sunday at the Accra sports stadium.

Jimmy Cobblah replaced Herbert Addo in the latter part of the first round to help steer the club from the relegation zone, but the move has proved to be unsuccessful thus far as they are still languishing at the bottom of the league log with just five games to go.

And as the two sides square off, the former Wa All stars coach believes his track record against the Phobians at the Accra sports stadium will prove to the catalyst in winning the maximum points for his ailing team.

He said, “Beating Hearts of Oak at Accra has never been a problem for me. They are aware of the spirit I possess when playing them at their home ground. I’ve used every team I have managed to beat them both at the Accra stadium or any other ground and therefore it will not be a problem to face them with Inter Allies. And in the past I’ve used Heart of lions and Wa-All stars to beat them at Accra, and I will approach this match like I did in the past.”

“I only have one ambition going into the game, and that’s just to repeat what I’ve been doing to them over the periods. They are one of the least clubs I fear in the league, but I also know the quality they have in their team and my only prayer is to have our day for us to complete the task. I know that if we can keep the ball, they’ll not have any chance of defeating us,” Jimmy concluded.

Inter Allies will hope to avenge the 3-2 dramatic loss to the Phobians at the Tema sports stadium in the first round on Sunday.
