Hearts of Oak rallied from behind to beat Liberty Professional 2-1 at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman courtesy strikes from Bernard Arthur and Kofi Kordzi.

"Kotoko is always ready for Hearts of Oak encounters," coach Konadu said after the game against Dwarfs.

"I believe they are always ready for us. You know matches between the two sides is a high profile game and nobody is going to relax.

He added, "I know they are preparing very well and have one eye on this game."

"It's going to be an interesting game anyway. We have one eye over there. The El Clásico is on, let's wait and see what happens on Sunday."

Kotoko after losing the previous two games against Berekum Chelsea and Medeama SC beat Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium behind closed doors.

Late goals from 16-year-old Mathew Anim Cudjoe and Richard Arthur ensured victory for the Porcupines. Speaking after the game against Dwarfs, Konadu said the Porcupines are not scared of the rivals.
