Selasi Adjei asks team-mates to be wary of their Ghana Premier League opening game
Hearts of Oak forward Selasi Adjei has cautioned his team-mates not to underrate their Premier League adversary New Edubiase ahead of their weekend’s league opener on Sunday.
New Edubiase who for the past three seasons have been a torn in the flesh of Hearts of Oak last season stunned the Phobians with a 2-1 double victory.
According to the former Amidaus Professionals lethal attacker, it will be one of the biggest mistakes for the team to underrate the Bekwai based club.
"We will make a big mistake if we underrate any opponent in the Ghana Premier League," Selasi told
the club’s website.
"Edubiase have lost a number of key players for the new season but I still think we cannot completely underrate them.
"They beat us home and away last season, and they also caused us a big heartache in the final game last two years.
“We have to be fully prepared for the game and treat the Edubiase match as a must-win game. We have not heard much from their camp in pre-season, and I think that even makes them dangerous.
"Our coaches will come out with strategies to defeat them but we must also play our part by taking them seriously and professionally.
“The Edubiase match is our first game and we have to start it well by getting all the three points." This will be the second time Hearts are playing against Edubiase on the opening day of the season,” he added.
