Hearts of Oak assistant coach Edward Nii Odoom has admitted that the technical team is under pressure to grind results following the club's poor run in the Ghana Premier League.
The Phobians have picked only four points in their last five games, scoring six goals and conceding 10 goals.
They will face fierce rivals Asante Kotoko on Sunday.
"The next game against Kotoko is of course a defining moment for us (the technical team)," Odoom told Otec FM.
"It is however not for the coaches alone but everyone at the club. The supporters have a role to play ahead of the crucial game so we will work hard and improve on our last game against Bechem United.
"Although, we shared the spoils against Bechem, the players played well and created several goalscoring opportunities but it was unfortunate we couldn't make it count. In spite of all these, I believe we will be ready for the Kotoko game," he added.
Hearts are currently sitting 10th on the log with 11 points including one away win after four games.
