The Nungua Warriors' manager is optimistic his charges will live up to the expectations against the Phobians in the FA Cup last eight

Danbort FC head coach Evans Adjei believes his side will be able to cause a major upset in the quarterfinals of the Ghana FA Cup as they play giants Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The lower-tier side eliminated last season finalists Okwawu United in the preliminary round before seeing off True Democracy and Heart of Lions in the round of 64 and 32 respectively.

They continued their fairytale campaign with a 9-8 marathon penalty victory over premier league side Liberty Professionals after holding them 1-1 in regulation time.

“We are not afraid of Hearts of Oak ahead of the FA Cup quarterfinals. Their players are just like the ones I also have in our camp," Adjei was quoted as saying by Sportsnetghana.com.

"We will match them boot for boot come Sunday. They have quality players and good coaches in their camp and the game can be likened to a David and Golliath affair of which we're the latter but we will do our best to win and obviously our best will be appreciated by all on Sunday,” he added.

Hearts also joined the competition in the round of 64 and defeated city rivals Sporting Mirren 2-1, before eliminating Kotoku Royals at home in an emphatic 4-0 victory and pipped Young Wise in the round of 16.

In the other matches, Medeama will host Amidaus Professionals while Wa All Stars lock horns with Berekum Chelsea but the game between Asante Kotoko and NEA Salemina has been postponed.
