An injury time goal by Hassan Mohammed ensured that Accra Hearts of Oak opened a six-point gap at the top of the standings after match-day-25.
The Phobians were 1-0 away winners over AshantiGold at the Len Clay stadium in a heated atmosphere.
The Miners who still have game to spare have slipped to the fourth position.
Both sides played a goalless first half game though the Miners appeared the better side.
However the second half produced a different ball game as the Phobians held on brilliantly and with two minutes into injury time, Hassan Mohammed was hand to deliver the killer punch before an expectant home crowd.
