AshantiGold say they were attacked by armed robbers while travelling back to Obuasi after their Ghana Premier League clash with Hearts of Oak in Accra.

The robbers opened fire but fortunately, no one on the bus got injured.

“We got attacked by armed robbers on our way back from Accra at Assin Endwa,” the club announced on Monday.

“The robbers shot three bullets at the front bulletproof glass as the team driver meandered his way through a terrible scene of gunshots.”

“Thankfully, no individual sustained any injuries. The entire team is currently safe in Obuasi,” they added.

Ashgold who are struggling this season suffered defeat to the Phobians at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday evening.

Daniel Afriyie Barnieh found his scoring boots as he netted a brace to secure a 2-1 win.

The striker who hadn’t scored since January 16 opened the scoring in the 12th minute when he converted a penalty.

The lead lasted for 13 minutes as the Miners levelled through Aminu Adams who headed in the rebound after a brilliant play by Yaw Arnor.

Arnor was lively and caused problems for Hearts but his finishing was poor. He missed a couple of good opportunities before Barnieh stunned Ashgold with his second goal.

Barnieh found the net with a powerful shot from outside the box to secure three points for Hearts to return to winning ways.

Ashgold are four points above the relegation zone following the defeat.
