Hearts of Oak, have had a blistering start to the 2015-16 Ghana premier league (GPL),while his outfit have been struggling.

But Opoku Nti believes the Porcupine Warriors have what it takes to silence Hearts at their home grounds, noting that Kotoko would emerge winners if they take their chances.

He called on the supporters to rally behind the team.

‘’They should remember the team in their prayers and keep their fingers cross, we believe that at the end of the day we will come out with flying colours after 90 minutes.’’

Kotoko have secured two victories against Hearts at the Accra Sports Stadium since 2009, with the rest ending in draws.
