Elmina Sharks are presented their biggest test so far this season when they welcome Hearts of Oak to the Nduom Park on Sunday.
The host despite taking the lead in the last outing suffered 3-1 defeat away to Karela United.
Sharks will have to be at the very best particularly in defense after having scored in all league games this when they play a resurgent Phobian side who seem to have found their rhythm under head coach Kosta Papic.
The Phobians 6-1 win over Bechem should put Sharks Coach Yaw Acheampong on high alert.
However, Hearts’ tall list of absentees should prove a good boost for Elmina Sharks are won twice and drawn three, losing two games already this game.
Hearts of Oak will be without a number of first team players including Abdul Lawali Mamane, Azeez Nurudeen, Emmanuel Nettey, Michelle Sarpong, Kojo Obeng Jnr. and Isaac Mensah
Coach Yaw Acheampong face no notable absentee ahead of the match day 8 tie on Sunday.
Recent meetings between the two teams has seen either side win two apiece with one game ending 1-1 which was in the truncated Ghana premier league last season.
