The Phobians have inched close to the drop zone after failing to pick at least a point in Kpando on SundayHearts of Oak are returning to Accra with a broken heart as Heart of Lions beat them 2-0 on Sunday.
The Phobians were dealt a heavy blow at the Kpando Stadium, which saw them dropping on the standings from ninth to the 12th spot.
Coach David Duncan tasted his second consecutive league defeat in charge of Hearts on Matchday-11. Two weeks ago, the Rainbow club lost all the spoils to Ashantigold in a 1-0 defeat and today’s loss affects their title chase.
