Ex-Hearts of Oak captain, Hassan Mohammed admits the Phobians will have it tough to win the 2020/21 Ghana premier league title.
The Phobians share 46 points with rivals, Asante Kotoko but lead the log on superior goal difference.
The 20-times premier league holders have won their last four matches under the tutelage of Samuel Boadu.
With the league trophy eluding the 2000 CAF Champions League winners over a decade now, they are bent on breaking that curse this term.
However, the club’s ex-defender believes they must focus and avoid any slip to win the league.
“The way the game is going, if you look at the top we have Kotoko and Hearts.
“It will not be easy for Hearts to win the league unless they focus and make sure there will be no slip.
“Because we have eight matches to end the season and definitely the two clubs cannot win all the games.
“There will be a draw, there will be loss at one point.
“I feel this weekend’s matches will play a big role.
“Hearts are at home and Kotoko are away and the games will be dicey.
“I feel the way Hearts is playing their home and away games without conceding, I feel Hearts of Oak can do a lot.” Hassan Mohammed told Africa-Foot.com.
The 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners welcome Berekum Chelsea to the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, May 30 for match day 27.
Their rivals, Kotoko will be at the Agyemang Badu Park as guest of Aduana Stars.
A slip by Kotoko will see the Phobians stretch their lead if they beat Berekum Chelsea.
