Accra Hearts of Oak head coach Herbert Addo is set to test the match fitness of pair Emmanuel Hayford and Landry Bousson, who have made injury returns, in their MTN FA Cup game against Afienya City.
Addo has named the pair in his 18-man squad for the game at the Tema Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Hayford returned to training before the Phobians embarked on the CAF Confederation Cup first-leg humiliation at Esperance de Tunis while attacker Bousson is also available after recovering from injury.
Bousson, an Ivorian international attacker, is likely to spearhead the Hearts of Oak attack while Hayford could claim a starting spot in the midfield.
The former Amidaus Professionals midfielder had been tethered by an ankle injury which had disturbed his season.
Hearts reached the stage after brushing aside Bolgatanga Man City at the El-Wak Stadium by 3 goals to nil.
Attacker Eric Kumi opened the scoring within eight minutes of joining the action in the second half and Mason October doubled the lead with a delicious free-kick before substitute Foovi Aguidi completed the emphatic victory with an injury time strike from the penalty spot.
