The two-time GPL champions last Sunday played a goalless stalemate with Hearts of Oak at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park.

A draw meant that the Phobians became the first club to pick a point at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park.

According to Elvis Opoku, despite Sunday's setback which has seen Medeama, AshantiGold, Asante Kotoko and Chelsea tied on 17 points with them at the top, they are poised to win the league.

"We are well focused on winning the league. We've moved on from Hearts of Oak stalemate as preparation has already begun for the Liberty Professionals match," he told Nhyira FM.

He added that to win the league they must put in the same shift as they have been doing at home game. Aduana have lost 2 games won and drawn one compared to their impressive home form of 4 wins and a draw.  

"No, away games are a different thing altogether, we will correct our mistakes to get a respectable scoreline in our away travels.

"To win the league, you need to also accumulate points in away games."
