Hearts of Oak put their troubled week behind them by beating Ebusua Dwarfs in the Ghana Premier League thanks to a late goal by Isaac Mensah.

The Phobians led by Samuel Nii Noi following mass resignation in their technical team beat Dwarfs 3-2 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Head coach Kosta Papic resigned as well as assistant coach Asare Bediako and the goalkeeper’s trainer Ben Owu which saw Hearts trend for the wrong reasons ahead of the match.

However, the players reacted well to end four games’ winless run. Victor Aidoo scored a brace as he converted two penalties in the first 19 minutes but Dwarfs drew level courtesy of Moro Sumaila and Dennis Korsah-Akoumah, who scored a penalty of his own.

The game looked destined to end in a stalemate but Isaac Mensah found the net in the 93rd minute with a fine strike.

Elsewhere, Ahmed Toure scored two goals on his debut for Medeama, who beat Elmina Sharks 2-1 at the Nduom Sports Stadium.

There are reports of Sharks fans attacking referee Eric Owusu Prempreh after the game.

Another debutant, Hans Kwofie found the net. His goal helped Legon Cities earn a point at Bechem United.
