GHPL: Hearts survive WAFA test as Kotoko suffer double-agony; All Match Day 4 results

There was midweek action as the 2019/20 Ghana premier league entered into Match Day four.

Among the week’s top liners was Hearts of Oak traveling to play WAFA while Kotoko play Medeama Sporting Club at Tarkwa.

The Phobians survived what appeared a tough test having begun the campaign on a rather poor note.

Hearts of Oak managed to pick a point from the tie after pulling a goalless stalemate against West African Football Academy on Wednesday.

It wasn’t the same story for their archrivals, Asante Kotoko who lost their second premier league game of the season, 1-0 defeat to Medeama SC in Tarkwa.

The Porcupine Warriors fell behind as early as the third minute as Prince Opoku converted from the penalty spot to put the Yellow and Mauve in front.

Despite facing a daunting task to find an equalizer, Kotoko got reduced to 10 men as Imoro Ibrahim picked his second yellow card of the game to receive his marching orders.

With a man down, Kotoko kept pushing for an equalizer but Medeama defense was resolute as they held to earn their third win of the season.

Meanwhile, Kotoko has been changed by the GFA to play 5 home matches behind closed doors and as well as pay a fine of 10,000 Ghana cedis for crowd violence in their Match Day 3 game against Berekum Chelsea.

Berekum Chelsea 1-0 Dreams FC
Eleven Wonders 1-0 Aduana Stars
Ebusua Dwarfs 1-2 Liberty Professionals
King Faisal 2-2 Bechem United
Inter Allies 2-3 Elmina Sharks
Legon Cities 0-0 AshantiGold

The game between Great Olympics and Karela United is scheduled for Thursday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
