Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko outstanding matchday 7 encounter game ended in a goalless draw at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Phobians came into the game with the aim of reducing the points margin between them and the Porcupine Warriors started brightly, and should have taken an early lead when Daniel Barnieh set up Kwadjo Obeng Jnr, whose strike hit the post.
The young striker Barnieh wasted another glorious opportunity to break the deadlock minutes after in the first half hour of the game.
Red-hot Kotoko forward Frank Etouga came close for the Porcupine Warriors in the 36th minute but his effort did not trouble Richard Attah.
Asante Kotoko returned from the break the more adventurous with Etouga and Richard Lamptey getting great opportunities and keeping Hearts goalie Richard Attah busy.
Sulley Muntari, who was impressive in the first half had to be replaced in the early minutes of the second half by Fredrick Ansah Botwe.
The Phobians started to grow into the game once again but could not just find the back of the net, and later on coach Samuel Boadu brought on leading scorer Kofi Kordzi for Barnieh.
The powerful forward did nit get enough time to make an impact as the two team shared the spoils in Accra.
