Hearts of Oak came from behind to pick a point against Bechem United in the Ghana Premier League on Saturday.
The defending champions were hoping to make it continue their winning streak after victories over Accra Lions and Dreams FC, but Bechem United held them to a 1-1 stalemate at the Nana Gyeabour Park.
Hearts Of Oak pick the maximum over Bechem at the same venue last season but the latter proved to be a tough nut to crack this time around.
In the 28th minute, Emmanuel Owusu broke the deadlock of the game to give the home team the lead.
