Captain fantastic Otoo rescues Hearts



Mahatma Otoo is prone to the occasional outstanding display for Hearts, and he did it again at the Golden City Park on Wednesday as he prevented another loss for the Accra side.

It finished 2-2 against Berekum Arsenals, whose goals from

Isaac Ayisoni

and

James Boadu

took the game into the final minutes with defeat staring at Hearts.

But after drawing his team level twenty minutes after the break, Mahatma Otoo again scored two minutes into injury time. This means the Phobians have not won in five consecutive games.

"Like I said before this game, we are working on our team and we will come back to our former form. It's a matter of time and patience," the skipper told supersport.com in Berekum after the game.

The Accra side are two points and a place above the relegation zone, a very unusual place for the former African champions, but Otoo - named Man of the Match against Arsenals - insists "the season is not over and we can get back into the top four if we put our minds to it."

Arsenals 2-2 Hearts, Kotoko 3-2 RTU, Medeama 0-0 King Faisal, Liberty 5-0 Chelsea, Aduana 1-0 Tema Youth, Heart of Lions 1-0 Edubiase, AshGold 2-2 Dwarfs
