Legon Cities 1-1 Hearts: Watch Osman Amadu’s goal which has put Samuel Boadu’s job on the line


The Phobians have now failed to pick a win after four games in Ghana Premier League after Legon Cities broke their hearts late on Saturday

Pressure keeps mounting on Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu as his side shared the spoils 1-1 with city rivals Legon Cities at the El Wak Sports Stadium on Saturday.

After losing to Great Olympics and sharing the spoils goalless against RTU and Asante Kotoko, Samuel Boadu was in dire need of a win and although Sulley Muntari proved why he is regarded as one of the reasons the Phobians may have an improved performance in the second half of the season, a late equaliser dashed the hopes.

The 37-year-old was handed his third start in a row and despite initially struggling to deal with the poor nature of the pitch, he was able to stamp his authority in midfield.

After a slow start to the game, Hearts had their noses in front thanks to Muntari’s decisive assist to Isaac Mensah by the 16th minute.

The former Inter Milan and AC Milan midfielder sent in a tailor-measured cross from a corner kick which was met by Mensah by the eleventh minute.

However, Legon Cities left it late and pulled even late in additional time. A terrible mistake by Dennis Korsah who joined Hearts from Ebusua Dwarfs last month gave Ousmanu Amadu the chance to score the equalizer.

Hearts, before the game, were trailing Asante Kotoko by twelve points which has now been reduced to eleven. However, Kotoko can extend it too fourteen points on Sunday if they are able to defeat Dreams FC at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
