First four matches can make or break us – Hearts Captain

Hearts of Oak captain Robin Gnagne says his sides first four matches in the First Capital Plus League can either make or break their entire season judging from the difficult nature of the fixtures.

The Phobians’ 2014/15 league title challenge gets off to a difficult start with four consecutive “away” matches, the result of an outstanding home ban they received after their last home game against New Edubiase.

“Our first match will be against one of the new comers and it will be very difficult because unlike the other four teams, we know nothing of them. But our real worry will be the match venues for our two banned home matches, because that can really affect us”, Robin Gnagne revealed to

“As it stands, we will play our first four matches away from the Accra sports stadium, and if what happened last season was anything to go by, then these first four matches can either make or break us following the results we manage to get before finally coming home
against Liberty.”

The Ivorian international mentioned that so far the technical team is doing a great job in psyching them up for what he termed the Phobians toughest start to a league campaign.

“The coaches have been good so far and since the fixtures were announced, it’s been advise upon advise, and the players are gradually getting used to the idea.”

“We know it’s not going to be easy because the supporters are the backbone of the team, but we will do our best to amass enough points from those matches before we finally return to the Accra sports stadium”, Robin Gnagne confidently concluded.
