The Phobians were stung at home by Ashanti Gold as the Porcupine Warriors proved too strong for the Crabs

Although, there was no positional change among the top four, Asante Kotoko have moved very close to rivals Hearts of Oaks on points as the Ghana Premier League thrilled fans with matchday 20 action on Wednesday.

Only seven matches were played as Berekum Chelsea's tie against Medeama has been rescheduled to Thursday due to heavy rains in Tarkwa.

At the Accra Sports Stadium, third-placed Hearts of Oak suffered their fifth defeat of the season by a 1-0 reversal to Ashanti Gold. Daniel Gozar scored the all-important goal.

The Phobians are now separated from Kotoko by just a point as the Porcupine Warriors picked a 1-0 away victory at Ebusua Dwarfs to close up the gap. Baba Mahama's 31st minute strike secured full points for the Kumasi-based outfit.

At the top, however, surprise package Wafa had Musah Nuhu's lone goal to thank for a 1-0 home triumph over Elmina Sharks, effectively protecting their three-point lead.

Second-placed Aduana Stars, though, still keep up the chase on the Academy Boys by beating Great Olympics 1-0 at Dormaa. Bright Nsiah was on target.

Wahab Ackwei was the hero as Inter Allies pipped Bechem United 1-0 to move to the fifth position. The match was played at the El-Wak Stadium in Accra.

At the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman, Liberty Professionals played without captain Samuel Sarfo, who is currently away on international duty, but that did not stop them from thrashing bottom-placed Bolga All Stars 3-0. Yusif Mubarik, Ben Eshun and Richard Kissi Boateng ensured three points for the Scientific Soccer Lads.

But at the Malik Jabir Stadium, reigning champions Wa All Stars and new boys Tema Youth shared the spoils following a 1-1 draw. Tawfiq Yakubu Mohammed put the visitors in front before Paul Asare De Vries restored parity for All Stars.
