Hearts of Oak star Salifu 'Di Maria' Ibrahim has promised the Phobians will oust Wydad Casablanca next week and reach the Group stage of the CAF Champions League.
The winner provided the assist for Isaac Mensah to score the only goal of the match in the 1-0 win over the Moroccan club at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, 17 October 2021.
Hearts face a daunting task to maintain that slim advantage in the second leg which will be played next week.
Ibrahim posted on his Twitter account: ''Not the exact scoreline you were expecting from us today but thanks to Allah for the victory.
''We would continue to work hard until total qualification is secured. Come On All Ye Phobians.''
The Phobians failed to make good use of the scoring opportunities that came their way in the second half of the encounter.
The Moroccan club came close to getting the opener but Hearts goalkeeper Richard Attah saved the situation in the early stages of the match.
Wydad made another scoring attempt by Zouhair El Moutaradji but once again it saved by Attah.
