Samuel Inkoom scored his second goal of the season to power Accra Hearts of Oak to a 1-0 win against Bibiani Gold Stars in their Ghana Premier League Match Day 29 fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The former Dnipro right-back who joined the club in the second round of the season converted from the spot inside 11 minutes after Benjamin Yorke was fouled in the box.

Inkoom sent Bibiani Gold Stars goalkeeper Yaw Ansah the wrong way as he calmly slotted home from the spot.

The goal gave the Phobians their third win in four matches – taking them to the third spot in the League standings with 47 points – one point behind second-placed Bechem United and nine points adrift of leaders Asante Kotoko.
