Aduana FC recorded yet another home win on Sunday – this time a 1-0 win against Champions Accra Hearts of Oak on Match Day 20 of the Ghana Premier League at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park at Dormaa.

Aduana FC scored seconds before halftime and held on for their first win over Hearts of Oak under Coach Samuel Boadu.

Boadu's side had not lost in their previous two meetings against Aduana FC and came into the clash high on confidence after back-to-back wins against Asante Kotoko and WAFA.

Sam Adams converted that proved the match winner as he received a through pass in a good position before calmly smashing home the match winner beating substitute goalkeeper Richmond Ayi with a powerful low effort.

Ayi came on for Richard Attah who was stretched off over what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

Aduana FC are now eight points behind leaders Asante Kotoko who beat Bibiani Gold Stars 5-0 later on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Hearts have seen the points separating them and the top four increased to five points.

The defeat also means Hearts haven't won at Aduana in eight years.
