Striker Mahatma Otoo scored twice to help Hearts of Oak record their first away win of the season in a 3-1 victory against Liberty Professionals on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old, whose devastating scoring form has been influential for a resurgent Hearts side, scored in the 24th minute to add to a Sadat Karim opener on 13 minutes.
Otoo then killed off any possible fightback from Liberty in the 68th minute after Ghana U20 striker Kennedy Ashia had halved the deficit two minutes earlier.
Hearts returned to winning waves after beating a nine-man Amidaus Professionals 1-0 on Sunday but Liberty were always going to be a hard nut to crack.
George Lamptey’s side had picked four points from a possible six and were hopeful to record a win against Hearts.
But a strong performance from the former African champions consigned the Scientific Soccer Lads to defeat.
Sadat’s opener was a product of teamwork while Otoo’s first and second were as a result of his attacking prowess.
The win takes Hearts to 8th place on the table ahead of derby clash against Kotoko on May 5.
