Hearts home struggle continues

Hearts of Oak are having a patchy form this season. The Phobians have struggled to find consistent results hard to come by and as a result, are 9th on the standings.

The Phobians have not fared well in their home games this season and yesterday played a goalless stalemate with AshantiGold at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Yesterday's result means the Continental Club, have picked up only a win, lost 2 and drawn a match in their four games at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Dwarfs shock Aduana

Ebusua Dwarfs produced the shock of the season in their midweek fixture against Aduana Stars. Dwarfs stunned Aduana Stars on Wednesday to pick their second win of the season.

The Mysterious Dwarfs posted a 3-1 win over the visitors courtesy Michael Asamoah, Seidu Abubakar and Isaac Donkor's strike with a consolation from Mohammed Yahaya.

 

Yahaya Mohammed breaks away 'curse'

Yahaya Mohammed has finally scored his first away goal of the season. Prior to the Dwarfs game, Yahaya who has been in scintillating form having notched 7 goals was yet to find the back of the net outside the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa. 

However, he silenced critics by scoring his first away goal to move to 8 strikes after 8 games as he tops the goal king chart being followed by Victorien Adebayor on 7 strikes.
