Hearts of Oak have returned to the summit of the Ghana Premier League table following their deserving 2-1 win over Legon Cities FC on Thursday evening at the Accra Sports Stadium.
All three goals of the clash were scored in the first-half with the Phobians taking a 2-0 lead before Nigerien forward Victorien Adebayor registered his first goal of the score in the jersey of the Royals.
Ghana youth attacker Daniel Afriyie Barnieh produced a moment of magic and inspiration for the Phobians as his jaw-dropping skill saw two Cities defenders beaten inside the box with his supreme nimble foot and energy as he weaved past the defence men before laying the pass to Kwadwo Obeng Junior who has positioned himself in space to score the opening goal and register his 9th league goal of the campaign for the Phobians.
Hearts continued to exert their energy and forced their presence on the game and 9 minutes after Obeng’s equaliser, the Phobians doubled their lead through midfielder Frederick Ansah Botchway. The former Liberty Professionals box-to-box midfielder who came in for Emmanuel Nettey in the starting XI swept home a screaming low grounder after Salifu Ibrahim’s corner kick was ganged out of the box by the Cities defence men.
