Accra Hearts of Oak’s quest to stretch their lead over rivals, Asante Kotoko to five points was given a jolt at the Cape Coast Stadium in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
The Phobians had to rally from a goal down to draw 1-1 against Ebusua Dwarfs in matchday 32.
Intelligent Dwarfs left-back, Dennis Korsah shot the Crabs into the lead from an advantageous free kick on the 85th minute.
Hearts of Oak however left it late to pull parity from the boot of striker, Kwadwo Obeng Junior who smashed home a left-footer from Fatawu Mohammed’s cross.
Hearts coach, Samuel Boadu admits his charges underestimated Dwarfs.
“As you know the relegation team and the team which wants to take the league is highly competitive.
“It’s quite unfortunate we conceded a goal before we came back. We are not done yet, we are still on course, we wanted to win this match so that we can widen the gap, I’m not happy at all.
“They [Hearts players] were a little bit down, they think that Dwarfs is a weak side so they can score them so they relaxed.
“But we don’t go like that, we should go all out so that we can win the subsequent matches because we need to take the league title.” Samuel Boadu said.
Notwithstanding the drawn game, Hearts of Oak still have their three point’s lead over Kotoko. The 20 times Ghana champions have 60 points against Kotoko’s 57.
With two matches to end the season, Hearts of Oak need a win to be crowned champions for the first time in 12-years.
