Hearts of Oak moved up to third place after a narrow victory over Bibiani GoldStars on Wednesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Phobians have had a difficult few days, with several of their players hospitalized due to unknown illnesses.
Samuel Boadu raised a team, naming only five players on the bench, with Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, Abdul Aziz Nurudeen, and Isaac Mensah all absent.
They could, however, rely on goalkeeper Richard Attah, who is back in action, and experienced duo Sulley Muntari and Samuel Inkoom. One of the more experienced players decided the game in Hearts of Oak’s favour.
Inkoom scored the game-winning goal earlier in the game, giving Hearts their third win in four games and increasing their chances of finishing in the top four.
After 11 minutes, Hearts of Oak were awarded a penalty, which Inkoom calmly converted to give them the lead.
The defeat extends GoldStars’ terrible run away from home. This season, they have gone winless in 15 away games.
