Defending Ghana Premier League champions, Accra Hearts of Oak, are yet to win a game this season after their latest 1-1 draw at home against Aduana Stars.
Samuel Boadu’s men, though unbeaten so far, have picked up just three points in three games this season, with three successive draws.
The Phobians already find themselves six points behind rivals Kotoko, who sit on top of the league table.
Hearts forward, Kofi Kordzi, who leads the club’s scoring chart with two goals so far, has labelled their start as shameful, and has admitted that defending the title will be difficult.
“It is very difficult, but three games without a win as champions is shameful,” he said.
“We will try and get back to our best as soon as possible.
“Its not easy at all, because as champions, every other team plays with extra determination when they come up against you.”
Hearts will travel to Obuasi next to take on Ashanti Gold.
