Steven Mukwala's brace and a goal from Isaac Oppong inspired Kotoko to the vital win while Linda Mtange and Martin Karikari scored the consolation goals for the Phobians.

The victory was Kotoko's fourth on a trot and their fifth in all competitions while the Rainbow side picked a back-to-back defeats and their second in their last five matches.

Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richmond Ayi caught all the attention on the pitch as his costly mistakes led to the Accra-based club’s defeat.

However, a video of Ayi crying after the game with the second-choice goalkeeper Richard Atta consoling him triggered various comments on X about the weight of Atta.
