Hearts of Oak coach C.K Akunnor insists his side stand a good chance of beating Asante Kotoko in the weekend’s big Ghanaian derby.

The Phobians have managed back-to-back wins under Akunnor who had a stuttering start after taking over from Serbian Nebojsa Vucicevic.

Hearts in their last league outing thrashed All Stars 3-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium and the ex Black Stars captain believes his side is coming to form at just the right time – enough to upset the almost certain champions at the end of the current campaign.

“They (Kotoko) are in really good shape but we are building up gradually,” he told

“Every match we dwell on our mistakes and see the way forward.

“We’ve worked very hard this week, tomorrow we will continue till Friday.

“And so if we are able to do our homework very well I think we will go there and challenge them on their own grounds.”

Akunnor was however tight-lipped on his game plan for Sunday but insisted he is well furnished with the strengths and weaknesses of his opponent.

“It will be improper for me to tell you about that,” he said.

“We have assessed them and we are working on their strengths and their weaknesses.”
