The Phobians after recovering from the defeat they suffered to bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko SC with a 1-0 vital win at Dreams FC on Sunday were looking to add Ashantigold to the list of their victims but profligacy on the part of their attackers saw the game ended barren.
Hearts started in a lively fashion as they came close to scoring early on. A howler from Frank Boateng provided a great opportunity for Daniel Afriyie but he blasted his effort over the bar from six yards.
Afriyie who could have score two goals on the day was left frustrated after failing to convert his chances.
AshantiGold SC who were looking for another victory after a hard fought 1-0 win at home against Ebusua Dwarfs last weekend, faced a long trek to the capital to take on Hearts of Oak on Thursday night but were unable to find the back of the net.
Hearts of Oak are currently 9th on the league table with 11 points while Ashanti Gold maintained their 4th position with 14 points after eight matches.
The phobians will face current champions Aduana Stars at the Nana Agyemang Badu II Park on matchday 9 while AshantiGold SC hosts Liberty Professionals on Sunday .
