Hearts of Oak have been boosted by the injury return of Thomas Abbey, Ezekiel Tetteh and Gilbert Fiamenyo.

The trio have not played for the Phobians in the second half of the season due to various forms of injuries.

Their absence has been sorely missed as Hearts suffered a humiliating 3-0 home loss to Wa All Stars on the top flight’s resumption last week.

They however took part in Monday’s training session but are yet to get the all-clear – something that excites under-fire coach Mohammed Polo.

“The squad is getting healthier by the day as most of the injured players have started returning,” he told Hearts Radio on Metro FM.

“We still have to check and assess their fitness to see whether they can be used in our next game.

“So I believe we are on course to getting our full set so that we can forge ahead.”

The weekend’s game at Aduana Stars might come too early for the trio but are said to be likely to return to first team action in their Week 18 game at home to Ebusua Dwarfs.

Hearts have struggled under Mohammed Polo – winning just one of their five games under the former Ghana forward and losing three including back-to-back 3-0 defeats against All Stars.
