Hearts of Oak bounced back to winning ways by beating Inter Allies 1-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday evening.
The Phobians, after losing 1-0 to Ashantigold in Obuasi on match-day 19 triumphed in the last fixture for the weekend via Paul Abanga’s own goal.
Hearts began with a strong mode in midfield and in attack as they forced Allies to defend. The visitors then had their moments but were wasteful.
In the 10th minute, Samuel Armah could have broken the deadlock but he only shot wide.
Same happened for Richard Arthur in the 19th minute but the effort was deflected and it could only land on the side net.
Hearts then took over the encounter and began with some delightful midfield play to create the game’s opener.
The 26th minute of the match saw Daniel Afriyie connecting to a well-struck cross from the flanks before Abanga, in an effort to clear, tapped into his own net.
Hearts then held on till half time and searched for the second goal of the game after the break. But upfront they lacked the right fire power.
In midfield, Allies suffered as Gockel Ahortor and Richmond Lamptey struggled for space.
Their hosts then controlled the lead till full-time, claiming their ninth win of the season. Now lying 3rd on the league log, the Phobians will play King Faisal in Accra.
For bottom-placed Allies, Elmina Sharks is their next opponent at Dawu.
