Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has insisted his side is not in competition with any club and he is taking the remaining fixtures match after match.
The Rainbow club claimed a 2-0 win over Berekum Chelsea at the Accra Sports Stadium to extend their winning streak to 5 games.
Benjamin Afutu headed home an Ibrahim Salifu corner kick in the 10th minute before Kwadwo Obeng Junior scored a fine finish 19 minutes later to seal the points for the Phobians.
The win has helped the former African champions to open a 2-point lead at the top of the table and have Great Olympics lined up for the next fixture in the league.
Boadu insists his side is not in competition in any club and says he is taking in the fixtures as and when they come.
“To play with Berekum Chelsea is not an easy match up. You might think because they are not in a good in position it is easy to beat them but is not easy. We are playing match after match. We are doing our own thing. We are not competing with any club. We have finished with this one. This one is gone so we have to regroup and prepare for the next match,” he said in the post match interview.
Chelsea came into the second half very strongly and could have scored but were held by Hearts.
“When a team is down they fight. They fight to come into the game so its normal. We had to do the medium and low pressing so that we could contain them,” he explained.
The win has taken Hearts of Oak to 49 points – 2 points above second-placed Asante Kotoko. The Phobians have won their last 5 games in the league and are in the form of their lives. No team has been able to breach the Hearts defence since Dreams FC beat them 2-0 on matchday 22.
