The Phobians travel to the Len Clay Stadium where they face AshantiGold. And both teams are eager to win the FA Cup which remains the only piece of silverware available.

“For me, all our good play and performances will go waste if we don’t win this FA Cup. For once in our lives this season, let’s show the fans that we are Hearts of Oak and we never say die,” Hearts coach, C.K. Akunnor said.

Though the AshantiGold v Hearts game remains the top-liner, there are other tough games also on the day.

Berekum Chelsea will take on surprise campaigners, Amidaus Professionals at the Golden City Park.

Amidaus will be buoyed on by the fact that the eliminated Asante Kotoko from the competition as they prepare to meet Chelsea.
