Barnieh the hero as Hearts of Oak beat Kotoko in Accra


fans have every right to believe the trophy would be theirs at the end of the season as they won the potential title decider against Asante on Sunday courtesy of a second-half by Daniel Afriyie Barnieh.

Barnieh, who was rejected by Kotoko about two years ago when he went on trial, got his revenge at the perfect time, one that Hearts fans would forever cherish.

The U20 captain, left unmarked in the box, hit a one time shot which overpowered Kwame Baah into the net. The goal capped off a wonderful weekend as Saturday was his birthday.

Augustine Okrah, however, squandered a glorious opportunity to level the score as Hearts held on for a 1-0 victory at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The victory means Hearts of Oak remain top of the table but are now three points ahead of Kotoko with three matches to go.
