Accra Hearts of Oak will host Tamale City on Saturday without their trainer, Slavko Matic who left Ghana for his native country, Serbia a day after their defeat to Bechem United.
The gaffer was supposed to touch down on Friday, January 6th but he is expected to return to Ghana latest by Wednesday.
Reports indicate the gaffer left Ghana for medical attention due to a knee injury he sustained during his playing days.
However, the Serbian trainer has been advised to undergo surgery but he has informed the doctors to schedule it for July.
His arrival on Wednesday means deputy coach David Ocloo will guide the team for their clash against Tamale City at the Cape Coast Stadium in game week 11.
Having suffered a 2-1 defeat against Bechem United on Monday, they aim to bounce back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon.
A win over Tamale City would see them climb to the top four again.
