Defending league champions, Hearts of Oak will bank on their 2-1 2022 President Cup triumph over rivals, Asante Kotoko as a confidence booster ahead of their encounter against West Africa Football Academy.
The Phobians host the academy boys in a delayed week 19 fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday 3:00pm.
The 21 time league title holders are not at their best this season having claimed treble last term.
They sit 8th on the 2021/22 league table with 26 points from 18 matches and need three points against WAFA to climb into top six.
Head coach, Samuel Boadu knows how important the points will be to his title defence and is readying his charges for the battle.
“We will plan well, against WAFA. “We have to go all out and pick that three maximum points.” Samuel Boadu told StarTimes.
WAFA come into the game with a mission, having held their opponent to a 1-1 draw in the first round at the Sogakope Park.
Their general performance is however unimpressive – collecting 18 points from 18 matches and seated 17th on the 18 club league table.
Anything short of a win will keep them in the drop zone with a victory pushing last season’s third place club a notch away from danger.
