Kenichi punishes Hearts as Inter climb to 3rd in Ghana Premier League

Inter Allies are yet to drop points at home this season

A 20th minute strike by Richmond Lamptey separated Inter Allies and Hearts of Oak in their Match Day 14 fixture played at the Tema Sports Stadium.

The match on Thursday was definitely centered around former Hearts of Oak trainer, Kenichi Yatsuhashi.

The American-Japanese parted ways with Hearts two seasons ago but returned to the Ghana Premier League with his appointment as Inter Allies’ gaffer.

There were lots at stake in the encounter in Tema.

The balances tilted in favour of the home side, who still kept their clean record at home.

The 1-0 win takes them to 3rd on the log, on 24 points – same as second-placed Ashanti Gold SC –  while Hearts of Oak drop to 12th, just two points above the relegation zone.

Allies travel to Ainyinase to take on Karela United this weekend while Hearts welcome league leaders Medeama SC to the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Meanwhile, champions Aduana Stars also pipped Bechem United in the other Week 14 game to continue their surge up the log.

The win only kept them 14th on the log though they have four outstanding games.
