Medeama had never lost to Hearts at home since 2011, a record which the Mauve and Yellow were looking to replicate but didn’t materialized under the Management of coach Kenichi.The home team moved straight into the ascendency with some delightfully telepathy between Akwesi Donsu and Benjamin Bature with the latter being brought down in the penalty box by the center referee who had some of his decisions being contested by both supporters.Both coaches made substitution to the game but it was the Phobians who got the better of the day, scoring two in the second half.ERIC’S TALKING POINTS There was an even representation by both teams in the area of support. The stadium was almost filled to capacity with both set of fans firmly behind their teamIt was a great game by both teams as they exhibited both defending and attacking prowess. It was a great spectacle for Ghana football.The Phobians  had the needed stamina to play Medeama who last season used that as an advantage. Kenichi’s men were up for the battle especially after the hour markKenichi was very composed throughout the game. Despite being on the backfoot for large portions of the game, Kenichi kept his team as he was confident of his game plan. Hearts had some of their board members and chairman coming to watch the game.
