Accra Hearts of Oak and Inter Allies settled for a barren drawn game in their last Ghana Premier League tie at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday.
It was the visitors – Allies – who wanted the result more as they celebrated wildly after the crunch game, aware that they have survived relegation.
Hearts started the game on a fierce note as they threatened to open the scoring but were denied by goalkeeper Saed Salifu whose heroics drew spontaneous applause from the sparse crowd throughout the afternoon.
On many occasions, Salifu came in between Hearts and an avalanche of goals.
Meanwhile, at the Dansoman Sly Tetteh Park, Liberty Professionals came from behind to beat Kumasi Asante Kotoko 2-1, thus retaining their Ghana Premier League status on a tensed day.
But yesterday’s result also meant Kotoko failed to snatch a top-four finish.
It was the Porcupine Warriors who first shot into the lead through Baba Mahama in the 32nd minute after receiving a gleaming pass from Kwame Boahen to poke home to end the first half 1-0.
Liberty came back from recess and fetched the redeemer after 66 minutes through Samuel Sarfo before unmarked Samuel Annan got the winner with less than eight minutes to end it all.
