Ghana Premier Match Day11-Hearts Bounce Back As Kotoko Extend Victory

Hearts of Oak moved top of the table for the first time in three weeks after Samuel Yeboah finished off a brilliant move from Isaac Mensah to give the Phobians all three points.

Hearts of Oak started Samuel Akrugu in post after first choice goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye was sent off in the super clash defeat against Asante Kotoko.

Berekum Chelsea were without their best player Saddick Adams who is with the Black Stars team B in Japan and that clearly had a toll on the team and their performance.

The Phobians whose three game home ban dominated the headlines started the game with a lot of fire power and clearly being led by Isaac Mensah.

Cosmos Dauda had an opportunity to put the visitors ahead but a little bid of hesitation in his mind saw his effort saved by goalkeeper in post for Berekum Chelsea.

Ricahrd Adjei tested Samuel Akrugu in the last minute of the first half and that was the only danger from the home side in what was a disappointing first half display from the home side.In Field Of Kotoko,

Dauda Mohammed scored twice as Asante Kotoko recorded a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Ebusua Dwarfs in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

The Porcupines made the derby win over Hearts of Oak count as they made light work of seemingly tricky task at the Baba Yara stadium.

Striker prodigy Dauda Mohammed bagged a brace in between Frank Sarfo Gyamfi’s clinical finish to send Kotoko to fifth on the table.

Kotoko made a promising start but were unable to break the defence of Dwarfs until the 29th minute, when a fantastic combination between Dauda Mohammed and Elvis Nyarko was finished off brilliantly by the former to give Kotoko the lead.

Before Sarfo Gyamfi fetched the second goal in the dying embers of the first half. The former Maritzburg right winger capitalised on defensive mix-up and placed the ball through the legs of hapless Dwarfs goalkeeper, Andoh.
