Hearts of Oak remain confident of toppling leaders Asante Kotoko and retaining their Ghana Premier League title despite trailing the Porcupine Warriors by 12 points.
The Phobians have struggled to replicate the form that earned them the crown last season- which ended a ten year wait.
Board member Frank Nelson believes they can give the Kotoko a hot chase in the title run-in.
"When you are a champion, you are a potential danger so everybody will know how you did it and nobody is in line for jokes so it is going to be a little bit of challenge so if you make a little bit of mistake, you put yourself under stress," Nelson told Africa-foot.com.
"I think that the Africa [CAF Champions League, CAF Confederation Cup] we went, not that it’s a problem but our boys were young and there is so much exposure in terms of travelling outside.
''But we are learning stage by stage so I think that it’s [league title chase] not over, somebody will say it’s over but I look at it and it’s not yet over.''
Hearts of Oak defeated Dreams FC 3-2 on Saturday afternoon to reach the final of the MTN FA Cup for the second successive season.
