Hearts of Oak interim head coach, Edward Nii Odoom, has unequivocally said his side is aiming for a win against their rivals, Asante Kotoko.

Hearts will host the Reds at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday in the match-day six fixtures of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians are heading into the match with a fine form as they are unbeaten in their last three league matches.

Odoom says they are aiming to take their tally to 10 when they face Kotoko in Accra on Sunday.

“This is a league match and there are three points at stake. Those are important points we want to pick up on Sunday and we want nothing else,” he said.

The former Tema Youth trainer also hailed the team’s fans who kept faith even after losing their first two league matches of the season.

“With the support of the fans, the players have been motivated to play very well. At Dansoman (against Liberty) and in Sogakope (against WAFA), the fans were marvelous and that helped the players,” he noted.

The capital club got themselves a 2-1 win over Dwarfs in Week 3, a goalless draw with WAFA in Week 4 and a late turnaround 2-1 win at Liberty Professionals in Week 5 to give them seven points on the table.

Hearts will be seeking revenge for their two most recent losses to Kotoko.

Kotoko edged the Phobians 2-1 in Kumasi on December 22 in the President’s Cup. The Reds also won the NC Special Competition semi-finals on penalties in June 2019.
