Hearts Brush Mirren Aside

By Our Sports Reporter -

Accra Hearts of Oak survived a scare to make a winning start of their league campaign after beating newly-promoted Sporting Mirren 2-0 at the Ohene Djan Stadium on Monday night. 

Two second half goals were enough to deny Mirren who had a chunk of territorial dominance but lacked the cutting edge.

Striker Eric Gawu slotted in the first goal on 87 minutes after he was left unmarked in the box.

Winger Douglas Nkrumah's corner-kick in injury-time richocheted the foot of the Mirren goalkeeper at the near  post and rolled into the net.

Hearts move to second place on the league table.
