Legon Cities 1 – 1 Hearts: ‘Lack of Concentration’ cost Phobians in Accra-Derby


‘Underwhelming’ Hearts of Oak SC threw away a 1-0 lead in the closing stages of their Ghana Premier League week 18 clash with Legon Cities FC to draw 1-1 at the El Wak Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Rainbow Boys preserved their early lead till the dying embers of the match when they gave away a cheap and avoidable goal to lose two precious points.

Sulley Muntari’s pinpoint delivery from a corner kick found Isaac Mensah’s head to head home the opening goal of the game to put the visitors 1-0 up.

Cities almost scored but Richard Attah reacted well to parry the ball over the crossbar to keep it at 1-0.

Isaac Mensah nearly made it 2-0 to the away team but his effort was saved by the Cities goalkeeper.

Daniel Afriyie Barnieh should have made it 2-0 to Hearts but failed to connect with Mensah’s low cross across the face of goal.

The second half was not on a high level and both teams failed to put passes together due to the poor nature of the field.

Osman Amadu scored two minutes into four minutes additional time period to snatch a point for the home team. 

Hearts of Oak SC are winless in four thelr last four outings in the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League season.
