Accra Hearts of Oak SC have been hit really hard with injuries at camp ahead of their clash with rejuvenated side International Allies on Sunday evening in Accra.
The Rainbow Club this season have not had it easy concerning injuries to their players and are now set to miss four key midfielders in a crucial and season-defining game against a side struggling for survival.
Four industrious which include creative player Frederick Ansah Botchway, Nurudeen Aziz, hard tackler and ball winner from Niger Mamani Lalawi and the hard-working Benjamin Afutu Kotei.
Hearts of Oak have had injury concerns throughout the season and missing these four players at this stage of the season could be very telling in their quest to end their over 10 years trophy drought.
The Phobians lost the reverse fixture 1-0 to the Tampico Boys would be seeking for sweet revenge on the bottom club side to spark and get their title ambitions back on track with a victory over the strugglers on Sunday.
But with the exclusion of the four players mentioned above who are very important to the team, the Phobians would have to play beyond their normal strengths to be able to gun down the highly motivated Allies team.
