Hearts of Oak set for Caf Confed Cup return match at end of month

Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak will play the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup clash with Benin side AS Police on February 28.

AS Police will host the Accra-based giants in the second leg of their first-round tie in Cotonou later this month.

This comes after an embarrassing 1-0 home win the Phobians secured against the ordinary-looking side on Sunday despite the several scoring chances at the Accra Sports Stadium for the home side.

Hearts will travel away, albeit on relatively short bus journeys across two borders to face their opponents even though air travel has not been ruled out.

Hearts take their slender 1-0 lead over the Police side to Cotonou hoping to win there and progress to the second round.

A capacity 25 000-strong crowd is expected to cheer on the home team as they attempt to cause a major upset and oust Hearts from the Confederation Cup.

Kotoko have a bye directly into the second round, which is being played on the weekends of March 13-15 and April 3-5.
