Hearts of Oak 1-2 Asante Kotoko: Phobians fall on Porcupines feet


Asante Kotoko defeated Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday in the Ghana Premier League.

The Fabulous Boys won 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium against their arc rivals in the week six of the Ghana Premier League 2019-20 season.

Justice Blay netted the first goal on the 10th minute with a bullet header following a free kick to make it 1-0 to the visitors.

Hearts of Oak dominated the entire first half but couldn’t find the equalizer before the break.

The Phobians came into the second half and continued from where they left off in the opening 45 minutes and were rewarded with their efforts when talisman Joseph Esso headed home the leveller.

Kotoko were awarded a penalty in the 89th minutes when youngster Mathew Anim Cudjoe’s attempted effort hit defender Mohammed Alhassan’s hand just inside the box.

Guinean import Naby Keita stepped up and converted the resulting spot kick expertly to put the Porcupines back in front to send the fans into a wild jubilation.

The game ended 2-1 to Asante Kotoko. 

Hearts of Oak suffer their second home game in just six games.
