Accra Hearts of Oak are under intense pressure to win at all cost when they host Ghana champions Wa All Stars tomorrow in Accra.
The pressure, necessitated by their three winless games against Inter Allies, Medeama and Ebusua Dwarfs places them in a tight corner to record their first win.
But that will come with a lot of hard work and tactical disposition from both the technical and playing body due to the statistics involving the two side’s meetings.
All Stars have proven difficult customers for the Phobians regardless of the venue over the seasons and tomorrow’s seems to follow the same trend.
Indeed, what makes the task more difficult for Hearts is their guests quest to make amends after their disastrous CAF Champions League campaign recently.
