Gaps and slips

Hearts of Oak extended their lead at the top to 11 points after a 0-1 victory over Heart of Lions at the Kpando Park. Samuel Affum scored on the 11th minute to hand the League a double over Lions who missed a lot of scoring chances.

Defending champions Asante Kotoko crashed to their sixth defeat of the season after a suffering a humiliating 2-1 loss to Gamba All Blacks. All three goals were registered from the spot but it was All Blacks which profited by the half hour mark.

Kessben FC romped to a 3-1 win over Tema Youth at the Anane Boateng Stadium in Abrankese.

Sekondi Hasaacas sealed a 2-1 home win over Bechem Chelsea at the Essipong Stadium.

AshantiGold did very little to their relegation battle as they failed to convert a penalty kick and drew goalless with Wa All Stars.

King Faisal also shared the spoils in a barren draw with Real Tamale United.

Berekum Arsenals were held to a goalless draw at the Golden City Park by Eleven Wise.

Positions, then...first six and then bottom three:

1. Hearts of Oak
2. King Faisal
3. Heart of Lions
4. Asante Kotoko
5. Bechem Chelsea
6. Eleven Wise
14. Real Tamale United
15. AshGold
16. Sporting Mirren

And that's the way the cookie crumbles. Laters!
