Kotoko striker Dauda Mohammed eyes Hearts scalp

Asante Kotoko striker Dauda Mohammed claims his side will deepen the woes of fierce rivals Hearts of Oakwhen they meet on Sunday in Week 26 of the Ghana Premier League.

Both clubs have suffered their worst season in almost two decades after battling relegation during much of the campaign. Kotoko have been able to move three places away from safety following their 1-0 victory over leaders Ashantigold. However, Hearts are still stuck in the relegation battle.

The 17-year-old believes the visiting Porcupine Warriors will be victorious but that anything less will see them slip into the battle zone.

“We are aiming at winning all our matches to finish the season on a good note,” Dauda told Goal. “If we lose this game, we will be back in the relegation battle therefore we’re leaving no stone unturned.”

Dauda, who has scored four goals this season, also revealed that Kotoko lost to Hearts in the President’s Cup as a result of a little confusion in the team but insists it has been fixed.

“We had some misunderstanding before our last match against Hearts in the President’s Cup, which affected our focus. Everything is back to normal so we’re aiming at claiming all the points at stake,” he said.

“We are charged up and set to hit Hearts on Sunday. The win against Ashantigold last weekend has given us lots of confidence and I can feel the unity in team ahead of the game.”

Hearts currently lie 14th on the log with 29 points while Kotoko are 12th with 32 points.

The Porcupines have won two, drawn two and lost one in their last five league games against the Phobians in Accra.
