Samuel Boadu rings changes in Hearts of Oak’s starting XI to face JS Saoura in CAF Confederation Cup — Ghana Sports Online

Hearts of Oak head coach Samuel Boadu has made two changes to his starting XI that defeated JS Saoura in the first-leg tie as the Phobians take on the Algerian side in the reverse fixture.

Goalkeeper Richard Attah, a member of Ghana’s Black Stars squad, has been dropped out of the squad entirely while offensive midfielder Salifu Ibrahim has dropped to the bench.

Second-choice goalkeeper Richard Baidoo gets the nod to start in between the sticks ahead of Richmond Ayi while Isaac Agyenim Boateng, who came off the bench to score in the first-leg tie, gets an offensive midfield starting berth.

William Dankyi and Raddy Ovouka are both starting the game as Boadu looks to bring solidity to the vital areas.

James Sewornu maintains his place in central defence as Robert Addo Sowah still remains injured and out of the game.

Frederick Ansah Botchway, Kofi Kordzi and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh are all starting for the 2004 winners.
