Hearts of Oak stun Chelsea to go top

6 years ago

Accra Hearts of Oak stunned Chelsea in Berekum to regain top spot from Wa All Stars who went down in Techiman.

A 58 minute strike by Samuel Yeboah was enough to ensure the Phobians returned to winning ways after their week 10 setback against arch rivals Asante Kotoko.

Many wouldn't have given Hearts any chance of victory considering the home side's frightening home record, but the Phobians defied the odds to underline their own away superiority this season.

Hearts are unbeaten in six difficult away games this season, and the victory in Berekum was their 4 away win of the season in six games, having won at Medeama, Inter Allies and Ashantigold.

The only blemish on their away record were the drawn games at Dwarfs and Techiman City.

The win, apart from being a welcome relief to Coach Kenichi, it also lifts the Phobians above Wa All Stars to the top of the league table.

Incidentally, Hearts lost the top spot to All Stars a couple of weeks ago after losing to the Wa side in Accra.
