Hearts of Oak beat Nations FC to move out of the relagation Zone

Hearts of Oak secured a vital 2-0 victory over Nations FC, moving them out of the relegation zone in the Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians dominated the match from the outset, Kassim Cisse's early goal gave the Phobians the lead. Hamza Issah extended the lead in the 13th minute to give his side a 2-0 lead in the first half. The Phobians defended well in the second half but their poor offensive play meant they couldn't increase the tally.

The victory sees Hearts of Oak moving into 11th place with 41 points. On the other hand, Nations FC remains in the 4th place with 48 points, meaning their chance to win the title is gone.

Hearts of Oak's win was a testament to their determination and resilience, as they aim to avoid relegation and finish the season on a high note. The team's coach, Abubakar Outarra, praised his players for their hard work and dedication, saying "This win is a good win for us but it is not easy with all the pressure to avoid the drop. We're not out of the woods yet, we are trying to survive and thank the supporters for their support.

Coach Kassim Mingle lamented his team's lack of concentration for Nations FC, saying "We conceded poor early goals and it caused us. We need to regroup and focus on our remaining matches."

The win sets up an exciting derby game for Hearts of Oak, who face Great Olympics in the Mantse Derby and Bechem United in their final two matches. Can they continue their momentum and secure their place in the top flight? Only time will tell.
