#GPLwk22: Dreams punish 10-man Hearts with 2-0 victory

Dreams FC recorded their second win in five Ghana Premier League second-round games with victory over 10-man Hearts of Oak on match-day 22 at Dawu Sunday afternoon.

Ali Huzaif and Sylvester Simba were on target for the Believers as they profited from Nuru Sulley’s costly red card for the Phobians.

The centre-back was sent off for a second booking after bringing down Dreams FC’s Victor Oduro in the 52nd minute.

Hearts – who had been profligate after a dominant first half – were punished from the free-kick conceded by Nuru.

And it was forward Ali Huzaif who stabbed the ball home from close range after his initial header was parried back by Hearts goalkeeper Ben Mensah in the 54th minute.

The opener and man advantage propelled Dreams to get going.

Second-half substitute Sylvester Simba then killed the game by squeezing in the second goal at near-post in the final of a 7-minute additional time.

Dreams FC climb to fifth, behind Hearts who drop to fourth from third. The two sides are, however, level on points – 34 – but the Phobians edge the Believers with the head-to-head rule, having won their first meeting 3-0 in Accra.
