Hearts of Oak will have to do without influential forward Kwadwo Obeng Junior as the Phobians take on Medeama SC in the MTN FA Cup semi-finals in Cape Coast on Sunday evening.
The 12-goal attacker is yet to shake off a leg injury he suffered just before the end of the Ghana Premier League season and is still undergoing POP treatment.
Meanwhile central midfielder Emmanuel Nettey has made a return to the squad after recovering from a knee injury he suffered while in action against Asante Kotoko in June. Nettey missed the final three games of the Ghana Premier League season and the MTN FA Cup quarter-final successes over Accra Young Wise and Elmina Sharks.
Nettey’s availability means Frederick Ansah Botchway could drop to the substitute bench.
Below is Samuel Boadu’s probable XI that will take on Medeama SC.
GK- Richard Attah
DF- Fatawu Mohammed (C), Raddy Ovouka, Robert Addo, Mohammed Alhassan
MF – Benjamin Afutu, Emmanuel Nettey, Salifu Ibrahim
FW- Isaac Mensah, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, Patrick Razak
