Hearts of Oak thrash Tudu Mighty in friendly

Published on: 10 January 2019

Hearts Of Oak walloped Tudu-based Mighty Jets 3-0 in a friendly encounter at the Pobiman training complex.

The Phobians continue their resurgent under new-coach Kim Grant as goals from Selassie Bakai, Kwadwo Obeng Jnr and Abubakar Traore ensured a big victory on the day.

Hearts took the lead through Selasi Bakai strike after connecting a perfectly struck corner kick from Alidu Namhan in the 43rd-minute mark. The first half ended with Mighty jets trailing by a lone goal.

Kwadwo Obeng Junior doubled the Phobians lead as they continued from where they let off by increasing the tally on the 61st minute.

Abubakar Traore put the game beyond the reach of Mighty Jets after tapping home the third from close range to give the Rainbow boys a comprehensive three-goal lead.

The Phobians have been testing the strength of their team by engaging in friendly matches to help the coach sharpen any rough edge.

This is their second win in five days following their narrow win over Future Soccer Academy last Sunday at the same venue.

The Accra based side look to be experimenting with their team to ensure they improve the side ahead of the Novelty competition which is expected to start later this month.

It is likely the Hearts will be engaging in another friendly match this coming Sunday
