Hearts of Oak are determined to finish the season well in order to make a return to the CAF Champions League.
The Phobians appear to be giving up the chase for the Premier League title with rivals Asante Kotoko in a comfortable 12-point lead.
Hearts are currently in the second automatic qualification spot for next season’s CAF Champions League.
And the club’s spokesman Muheeb Saheed says it’s the least the current crop can achieve to atone for their disappointing campaign.
“A big team like Hearts of Oak should be challenging for honours on all fronts locally and in Africa,” he told Metro FM.
“And therefore at the very least we should be able to finish the season well and qualify for Africa.
“But for that to happen, it means we need to win and win and win and not relent on our efforts.”
Hearts last participated in the CAF Champions League in the 2006/07 season when they failed to score a single goal after progressing to the group stage.
The Phobians qualified again after winning the Ghana Premier League in 2009 but withdrew from the competition due to inadequate preparations.
