Benjamin Yorke promises to claim a starting place at Hearts

Hearts of Oak winger, Benjamin Yorke believes he could turn things around for himself in the second round of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.

Yorke, 25 , signed a four year deal with the millennium champions – seeing him through to 2026 but his debut season has been far from impressive.

He has failed to start games under coach Samuel Boadu with the club’s following now questioning the importance of his acquisition from second tier club, Samartex.

The ebony black forward is however confident of changing the tune when the second half of the season commences on February 25. “I’m good. I feel strong, I feel confident,” Yorke told after Hearts 0:0 stalemate with Kotoko.

“This isn’t the situation I hoped for, but in a footballer’s career, you have moments like this. I’m working with calm and I’m confident I can turn it around so that when I have the chance to play, I do it as well as possible.” He added

With the second half of the season commencing this weekend, Samuel Boadu and his charges are faced with a daunting task of ensuring they successfully defend the league title.

Trailing league leaders Asante Kotoko by 12 points, it looks like an impossible quest but Yorke believes Hearts can cause an upset.

”It is a huge gap. It might look difficult but there is a possibility that we can outdo Kotoko and win the league. This is football and football is full of uncertainties.” He quipped.

Accra Hearts of Oak open their second round fixture against Legon Cities FC – a side which held them to a goalless draw at the Accra Sports Stadium.

They will need all three points from the Royals at the El Wak Sports Stadium to help whittle down the points gap in the top four standings.

The 21 time champions have 25 points from six wins, seven draws and four losses and are seated 7th, joint of points with Karela United.
