Hearts are hoping the break in the Ghanaian top-tier will serve as an impetus to revive their campaign in the second round of the league.
The Accra-based side dropped seven points behind arch-rivals and leaders Asante Kotoko after the first round of the campaign.
Hearts started the season brilliantly but the shocking sacking of David Duncan marked the start of a downward spiral.
However the club’s spokesman Muheeb Saed is confident the break will mark the side’s recovery.
We are very confident that the break is going to afford us the opportunity to work very hard on the players” Muheeb told Radio XYZ.
We see the break as a blessing because it is also going to give Coach Mohammed Polo the chance to know the players even better so he can impart his own philosophy on the boys.
“As a club we still think that winning the League title is possible.
"We have most of our difficult matches to be played at home and that can be beneficial to the club so we will come all guns blazing in the second round.”
Hearts will host All Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium when the second round of the League resumes on February 9, having lost to the same side 3-0 in their last encounter to end the first half of the season.
