Hearts of Oak will be without talismanic midfielder Obed Ansah for the Super Clash against Asante Kotoko on Sunday.
The 26-year-old is battling a recurrent groin injury and has not trained with the side in the lead up to the game.
His inactiveness on the training field all-week-long has given away the hint he won’t play any part in Sunday’s match at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Ansah produced one of his best ever games for Hearts in last season’s Super Clash against Kotoko at the same venue.
He bossed the midfield to show he was a class above his opponents and even his teammates.
His services will therefore be sorely missed by coach David Duncan in the second Premier League fixture.
