Hearts of Oak had a bigger share of the possession and opportunities in the first half but failed to make it count in goals.

Kotoko had the first opportunity just two minutes into the game but Frederick Boateng failed to connect a one-on-one situation.

The Phobians were also very close to opening the scoring in the 6th minute but goalkeeper Felix Annan made a splendid save to deny Kojo Obeng Jnr's effort from the edge of the box.

The introduction of Emmanuel Gyamfi and Obed Owusu in the second stanza improved the performance of the Porcupine Warriors.

In the 67th minute, goalkeeper Benjamin Mensah made his first save of the game when he parried away an effort by Emmanuel Gyamfi.
