Hearts of Oak failed to complete a season double over Liberty Professionals as they settled for a 1-1 draw at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Patrick Razak earned a penalty for Hearts in the 44th minute which was expertly converted by centre-back Vincent Atingah. Hearts were lucky to not go down 2-1 after Eshun headed home from another Kissi Boateng cross but the goal was controversially overruled for an offside. The Phobians remain third with 27points
