Bottom club, Real Tamale United, inspired by former Kotoko attacker, Nasiru Ganni, yesterday managed to snatch a crucial away point from Hearts of Oak after forcing their Onetouch Premier game into a goalless draw at the Tema Sports Stadium.
The visitors resisted a second half pressure from Hearts who are still struggling in search of their first win since thrashing Kotoko early this year at the Robert Mensah Stadium at Cape Coast.
After an unventful first half which was brought alive only in the 44th minute when RTU goalkeeper, Najawu Issah, reacted to Hearts' striker Moses Andoh's adventure the game was only illuminated in the second half as the Phobians began to assert themselves.
Hearts' Stanley Afedzie was denied the opener in the 50th minute when his brilliant volley sailed off the post after he had latched on to an Eric Gawu, pass.
In the 23rd and 24th minutes the stadium came alive again when Hearts roared again as Gawu's diving header to a pass by Moses Andoh shaved off the upright while Afedzie was denied by goalkeeper Najawu.
