Aduana stun Hearts in GHPL

Hearts of Oak suffered their first defeat of the season at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa in match day five of the Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians went into the game having drawn three and won one of the first four games of the season with Aduana coming in with a three wins and a draw.

Head coach of the Phobians Frank Nuttall named an unchanged side with Samuel Yeboah and hero from the previous game Alex Kouasi all starting for the visitors.

The home side had goalkeeper Stephen Adams fending off competition from Joseph Addo to start with Daniel Darkwa starting also in the middle for the Ogya boys.

On the contrast to popular view it was the away side who started the game on the high foot but Daniel Darkwa profited from a very good Zakaria Mumuni pass to put the home side in front on the 9th minute.

One quickly became two in the space of ten minutes with Derrick Sassraku putting the ball beyond goalkeeper in post for Heart.

That was too much fire for the first half of the game and the center man called it half time after Aduana went tow up.

The second half saw the Phobians starting with verve and fire to put the game  in grasp but tried as they did the home side stood resolute and strong to pose challenges.

Cosmos Dauda was given the last opportunity on the 80 minute to put his team in a fighting position but his effort was too weak.

The defeat was the first the Phobians had suffered this season with the win giving Aduana who are leading the pack their fourth victory of the campaign.
