Half-fit Hearts of Oak triumphs over Gold Stars.

Accra Hearts of Oak have managed to overcome the miners from Bibiani despite playing with a depleted squad. The playing squad of the phobians was hit with a sickness bug that has caused many of their players to be hospitalised. The management of the club applied to the GFA for the game to be postponed but was denied. They had to raise a team to play the game to avoid any possible sanctions. The phobians also welcomed back their talismanic midfielder Sulley Muntari into their starting eleven.

The rainbow club took the lead in the 12th minute of the encounter through a controversial penalty. Samuel Inkoom stepped up to score the only goal of the game which happened to be his second since joining the phobians. Gold Stars piled the pressure on the Hearts defence with the hope of the equalizer but were denied and repelled by the phobians. The game ended with the scoreline remaining the same.

The win has propelled Hearts to the 3rd position on the league table. They are unbeaten in their last 5 games.
