Head Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak , Frank Nuttal insists referee Yaw Ametepeh’s performance in the game against Wa All Stars must be reviewed following their defeat to the champions.

Accra Hearts of Oak’s premier League title aspirations was blown away after their 2-1 defeat to the Northern Blues.

The rainbow club opened the scoring through Samudeen Ibrahim before defender Robin Gnagne scored an own goal. David Abagna scored the second from the spot.

The build up to the second goal infuriated the Scotsman who thinks the penalty should not have been awarded and Hearts did not deserve to lose in that game.

''We were perfect in possession and we were very much in the game, there were some misunderstanding among and we conceded a goal,'' Nuttall commented at the post-match conference.

''For the second goal, what I can say is that it was a decision by the referee. At the moment there is one report at the FA on the referee who handled our game with Aduana and we are going to add this game also.''

Hearts of Oak are now seven points adrift of leaders Aduana Stars, who beat WAFA on Wednesday.

With three games remaining, the Accra-based club can only win the league if they win their last three games and hope both WAFA and Aduana lose their remaining games.
