Hearts of Oak are confident they can still defend their Ghana Premier League title despite trailing their rivals, Asante Kotoko by 12 points.
The Phobians who ended their 10 years trophy jinx last season have been poor in the ongoing season.
However, board member, Frank Nelson believes that they can give the Porcupine Warriors a hot chase in the title run.
“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 traveling 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,” he added.
Hearts of Oak will play Bibiani Gold Stars in the matchday 29 games at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday while Asante Kotoko play away to Ashgold at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
