In Week 2 of the Ghana Premier League, Hearts of Oak failed to find the net for the second straight time as they drew goalless at home to Medeama.

Hearts midfielder Malik Akowuah was facing his former team for the first time since leaving in the off-season but his efforts were not enough to give the Phobians a breakthrough.

Towards the end of the match, Hearts had a goal-bound header from Alex Kouassi tipped away by Medeama goalie Eric Ofori Antwi.
