Accra Hearts of Oak travelled to Samreboi in the Western Region hoping to get all three points in their game against Samatex 1996 DC but their wish could not materialised as they lost the game by three goals to two.

Samatex took an early lead in the fourth minute through Kwasi Fosu.

Hearts came in strongly with an equaliser and snatched the lead in the 42nd and 63rd minutes respectively through Dr Congo's Linda Mtange.

Emmanuel Keyeke scored in the 80th minute to bring the game to parity.

The keenly-contested match almost ended in a draw just as the first league but a 94th-minute goal from Dauda Yussif Seidu sealed Samatex’s fate as winner – the three points were theirs.

Reacting to the game, former FC Basel and current Hearts defender Samuel Inkoom expressed his disappointment at the way the referees handled the game.

"I have to say, I am very very disappointed about the referees,” he bemoaned. “Some of the decision are very bad. Wae have to make the game beautiful. We want football and Ghana is a football nation. The passion is going down because some of the decisions are not good. To be honest they are uncalled for."

Hearts of Oak is at the 5th position on the league table with 45 points, just one point ahead of their bitter rivals Asante kotoko who has 44 points.
