Hearts of Oak coach Frank Nuttall says his side is focused and not under pressure ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup final.
The Phobians come up against sworn rivals Asante Kotoko at the Tamale Sports Stadium – their first meeting in the final since the 1989/90 season and as well outside Accra.
“I’m under no pressure, I said that the first time I took the job, taking the job is a challenge, so I’m not under the pressure to win the trophy on Sunday,” Nuttall said at a pre-match briefing.
Hearts are record winners (10 times) of the FA Cup and will be hoping to extend the record in their 14th final appearance in Tamale.
“We are taking Sunday’s game very serious regardless who is playing, we are mentally ready to play.
”I’m focused on my team, we deal with who we have to deal with, we have to show a strong attitude on Sunday,” the Scottish gaffer added.
