Obeng Junior late goal saves Hearts from Legon Cities humiliation


Hearts of Oak and Legon Cities shares spoils at the Accra Sports Stadium

Hearts of Oak needed a last gap Kwadwo Obeng Junior strike to draw 1-1 with Legon Cities in the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday night.

The capital based club were coming into this fixture on the back off losing two consecutive duels, Accra Great Olympics in the Mantse derby as well as Medeama SC at the Akoon Park in midweek. 

With that in mind, the local giants needed to make amends to this bad patch of form, Obeng Junior missed the glorious chance to shot his side into the lead, moments later they were awarded a penalty following a push on Razak Patrick of which the young Manaf missed. 

Four minutes later, Jonah Attuquaye smartly skipped past Nuru Sulley to slot a beautiful one past Richard Attah in post for the Phobians. 

The second half would see, Hearts of Oak push resolutely for an equalizer, which they will get through Obeng Junior in the dying embers of the game to save the day. 

Hearts are up to 9th with the latter 13th on the log.
