Vincent Atinga 89th strike was what ended Kumasi Asante Kotoko unbeaten in the ongoing Ghana premier league.
The encounter started in its usual flow as both side were conscious not to commit themselves.
Kotoko were first to probe for goal but Mohammed Yakubu attempt went wide.
Hearts Of Oak had their own chances in the first half but all the opportunities went in the wrong way.
The host came into the second half showing flashes of what they have in stock for the period. Patrick Razak in front of the action.
It is not until the 89th minute when Kotoko handled the ball in the third half to offer Hearts the opportunity.
Hearts defender Atinga stood up and the Phobians ended Kotoko unbeaten run to the 2016/17 season.
