Medeama lost 1-0 at home to Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Akoon Park in Tarkwa.

A solitary goal from Kwadwo Obeng Junior in the first half was enough for the Phobians to return to winning ways after back-to-back draws in the previous two games.

Medeama gaffer Umar Abdul Rabi made four changes to the team that was pipped by Bechem United in the last league match a fortnight ago.

Kwasi Donsu, Kofi Asmah, Joshua Agyemang and Jonathan Sowah made way for the inclusion of Kelvin Nkrumah, Nana Benyin Quayson.

The others were Isaac Gyamfi and Hafiz Mohammed Akadom while goalkeeper Felix Kyei who joined from Karela United this transfer window was named on the bench.

Hearts opened the scoring of the match against the run of play through forward Kwadwo Obeng Junior in the 32nd minute.

Medeama came back from recess with more intent as they looked for the equalizer. Quayson came to close levelling matters but his effort hit the goalposts three minutes into the second half.

The Yellow and Mauves kept pushing for the equalizer but the Phobians’ defence and some decent goalkeeping from Richmond Ayi sealed the victory.
