1 month ago

Hearts of Oak's relegation fears were eased after a 2-0 win over Nations FC in the Ghana Premier League on Friday evening.

Two quick first half goals secured the crucial victory for the Ghanaian giants at the Accra Sports Stadium as they opened a five-point gap to the drop zone.

The Phobians got off to the perfect start when the club's top scorer Hamza Issah opened the scoring as early as the 7th minute, connecting a beautiful cross from left-back Dennis Nkrumah Korsah.

Ivorian Kassim Cisse doubled the lead seven minutes later when he found the back of the net after receiving a pass from Congolese midfielder Linda Mtange in the 14th minute.

Hearts have now jumped to 11th on the table after the win and will go into the remaining two Premier League matches with huge optimism.

Nation FC's quest to challenge for the Premier League title is now off the radar following the defeat as they trail leaders FC Samartex 1996 by seven points with just two games to end the season.
