Published on: 12 May 2019

Hearts of Oak youngster Manaf Umar Gumah is confident his outfit will beat Ebusua Dwarfs in the GFA Normalisation Special Competition matchday 11 fixture.

The Phobians were held to a goalless by Liberty Professionals at the Accra Sports Stadium in midweek and denied their second successive victory.

However, Umar says that Hearts will make amends against Ebusua Dwarfs at Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday.

The midfielder was adjudged Man of the Match in Hearts 4-0 thrashing of WAFA in matchday nine of the competition and hopes to replicate his fine form for Kim Grant’s side in their trip to Cape Coast.

“It was not a good game for us against Liberty on Wednesday. We came all out for victory but unfortunately, it did not work out for us,” the Auroras graduate told ncspecialcompetition.com in an interview.

“There are a lot of games ahead and we are looking to responding positively in our next games which starts from the match against Dwarfs.

“We are looking forward to correct our mistakes. We have to beat them on Sunday to remain top of the table in Zone B.

Hearts of Oak are currently top of the Premier B with 19 points, one above second side Karela United and eight above Ebusua Dwarfs.
