Accra Hearts of Oak opened a 2 point gap at the top of the Ghana premier league as they dispatched off Bechem Chelsea 2-0 at the Accra Sports stadium on Sunday.
Goals from Benjamin Efutu and Kojo Obeng Junior ensured that the Rainbow club remained top of the table at the end of match week 27.
Hearts got off to a good start with Benjamin Afutu heading in from close range in the 10th minute after a superb corner-kick from Salifu Ibrahim.
Hearts were really fired up for the clash especially with arch-rivals Kotoko having dropped points against Aduana Stars.
Berekum Chelsea had a good spell after going a goal down and could have restored parity halfway through the first half but Richard Attah produced a point-blank save to deny Kofi Owusu.
Hearts doubled their lead in the 28th minute through Kwadwo Obeng Junior who scored his seventh goal of the season with a composed finish inside the penalty box after a beautiful pass from Daniel Afriyie.
