Accra, Feb 27, GNA - Accra Hearts of Oak and Real Tamale United (RTU) sold out a boring goalless drawn game at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium in Accra on Sunday when they clashed in the Coca Cola Top Four competition to lower down the curtains of the tournament.

The Phobians approached the game with a must win situation in their quest to win the trophy, but their depleted team fared below their pre-match bluff to humiliate the visitors. Hearts dominated the early minutes of the game with consistent raids in RTU's vital area but it was their recruit goalie, Abubakar Sulemana who stole the show on the 34th mark when he dived to his elastic limit to retrieve a goal bound ball to the relieve of the scanty Phobian's who thronged the arena.

Four minutes later, his opposite number, Michael Abu kept his side in the game when in a splendid fashion he pulled to safety a Wisdom Abbey well-delivered volley to draw applause from the partisan crowd. The pattern of did not change much from recess as both team battled for supremacy in vain.
