The Phobians dropped points in Kpando against Lions, but still remain at second position on the log with just two points separating them from leaders Kotoko

Hearts of Oak traveled to Kpando on Matchday-7 to share the spoils with Heart of Lions on Sunday missing a clear opportunity to be at joint-top with rivals Asante Kotoko.

After a hard-fought battle between the two sides the score line was 1-1 to give the Phobians 16 points to remain at the second spot just behind the Porcupine Warriors.

Emmanuel Hayford put the former African champions in the lead in the 36th minute but their party did not last.

After seven minutes the hosts pulled level through Tanko Mohamed to ensure they move into the interval on the same score.

Few chances were created in the second half. It ended one all at Kpando. As it stands two points separates the Phobians and the leaders Kotoko, who continue to seize the summit on 18 points.
