The Phobians drew goalless at the Agyeman Badu Park to place 13th on the standings and continue with their unbeaten run in the second round

Accra Hearts of Oak’s invincibility in the second round continued as they recorded a 0-0 draw against Aduana Stars on Wednesday.

Aduana’s Saddiq Adams was the first to define the pattern of the game as his shot in the opening minutes flew yards off Tetteh Lugard's goal.
The rough nature of the pitch did not help matters as it affected the style of play of the two former champions.

Daniel Darkwah put up a good show as he constantly troubled veteran defender, Emmanuel Osei of Accra Hearts of Oak.

 Hearts of Oak also responded in equal measure with Mahatma Otoo and Yakubu Musah combining well to set-up Moro Abubakar whose final delivery went off target.

In the 27th minute, Aduana Stars appealed for a penalty as Robin Gnagne blocked a goal bound shot by Robert Arhin but the referee did not heed their call.

Mahatma Otoo and Godfred Saka of Hearts and Aduana respectively later had good chances but failed to hit the back of the net.

 Back from recess, both teams still looked desperate to snatch the three points at stake.

John Adomah was lucky to escape a red card as he brought down Mahatma Otoo but Referee Gyasi thought it was rather a yellow card offence.

Former Hearts of Oak player, Bernard Don Bortey who just returned from a one year ban joined the action in the second round and brought some bites to the attack of the home team.

In the end, the two teams shared the spoils as Hearts remain unbeaten in the second round of the league.
