The Phobians boss has ringed changes in his squad as they face the Algerian side in the cliffhanger encounter on Sunday evening

Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has made three changes in his squad that started the game against Algerian side JS Saoura in the first leg of the Caf Confederation Cup.

After boarding five different flights and passing two countries before they arrived at the match venue in Algeria, Hearts will take on Souara at 20 August 1955 Stadium in Béchar.

First choice goalkeeper Richard Attah has been dropped as the Phobians are hoping not to concede six goals again just like they did against Wydad Athletic Club in the Caf Champions League. Atta’s place has been taken by Richard Baidoo.

Also, Congolese defender Raddy Ovouka has returned to the starting line up after recovering from his leg injury. He takes over the place of Robert Addo Sowah who missed the trip due to injury.

In attack, Isaac Agyenim Boateng who scored the second goal in the first leg replaces Isaac Mensah. He will partner Kofi Kordzi upfront in search of goals.

Meanwhile, the midfield of Salim Adams, Frederick Ansah Botchway and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh have been maintained.
