Accra Hearts of Oak returned to the top spot of the GPL with an imposing spectacle against Legon Cities on Thursday night at the Accra Sports Stadium
Bashir Hayford’s men started tougher creating numerous half chances in the early exchanges, but the Royals failed to convert and were punished by exciting Daniel Barnieh who created for Kwadwo Obeng Jnr to score.
The Phobians regained control after the first goal and doubled their lead through a long range effort from Frederick Ansah Botchway.
Legon Cities responded minutes later when magical Victorien Adebayor buried a free kick from improbable range to reduce the deficit.
The eagerness in the game dropped in the second half as chances were few as the Rainbow lads felt content with the result.
Samuel Boadu’s Phobia boys held on to stretch their unbeaten run to 11 games.
Hearts of Oak will face rivals Asante Kotoko in the Super Clash on Sunday, with their current motivation, they look favourites.
