Hearts of Oak striker Cosmos Dauda believes their week 11 clash with AshantiGold has come at the right following their opponents poor start to the season.
The Miners are at home to the Phobians on Saturday as they attempt to improve on a frustrating 3-0 defeat against WAFA at Sogakofe, a result that has left them three points adrift of safety in the relegation battle.
Hearts meanwhile, recorded their heaviest win of the season in midweek when they beat Bechem United 4-2 at their stomping ground but are not great travelers as they have lost their last three consecutive away games.
But, Dauda thinks they can deepen the woes of the Miners in the game at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Saturday.
"We have to take advantage of their current form and hit them hard,” he told FootballGhana.
"This is the opportunity to beat them at their backyard since they are struggling to earn results.
