Acting head coach of Hearts of Oak, David Ocloo has acknowledged the performance of King Faisal despite their defeat in the encounter.

The Phobians left it to secure all three points at the expense of a resilient Faisal side.

Eonde fed Salifu Ibrahim to chip the ball into the net to break the deadlock on 89 minutes and Linda Mtange sealed victory with a 92nd minute tap in.

The win ensured the rainbow boys are back to winning ways after back to back defeat in their last two games.

"This is marvelous. You see we kept it late until the late minute. That makes it so sweet. I'm impressed. King Faisal played well. They were very disciplined and they gave us a very good game but we did the necessary thing which was to score."

Hearts of Oak are now 4th on the league standings with 45 points after 29 matches in to the campaign.

The Phobians' next league assignment is a trip to Samreboi to face Samartex.
