Published on: 17 March 2023

Hearts of Oak assistant coach David Ocloo has cautioned his team against underestimating Kotoku Royals ahead of their Premier League match-week 22 fixture on Sunday.

The Phobians will be looking to continue their unbeaten run in the ongoing season with a comfortable win over the rock-bottom side when both teams clash at the Accra Sports Stadium this weekend.

Ocloo, who has been in charge of Hearts of Oak in their last two matches - against Asante Kotoko and Bibiani Goldstars - insisted that Kotoku Royals would not be taken lightly by his charges.

Speaking to the club's media team, he said that the Royals would double their energy for the game due to their position on the table, and that underestimating such teams could result in a surprise outcome.

“Kotoku Royals will be doubling their energy for the Sunday's game because of their position on the table. Underrating such teams can result in a surprise outcome.

“We are focused and determined to secure a win over Kotoku Royals on Sunday. We are hopeful our good works will give us victory though it will not come easy”.

Hearts of Oak currently sit fourth on the league table with 32 points, while Kotoku Royals languish at the bottom with just 17 points.
