Hearts of Oak recorded a defeat in a friendly against Accra Lions at the Accra Sports Stadium ahead of their CAF Champions League preliminary round game against CI Kamsar.
The newly-promoted Ghana Premier League (GPL) side beat the reigning GPL champions 3-2 in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.
Hearts of Oak after going down first in the game through Oliver Amedor’s strike reacted well to end the opening half with a 2-1 lead. Daniel Afriyie scored upon his return from the Blacks Stars with Issac Mensah netting the second goal.
However, two goals in the second half by Shawkan Mohammed and Rauf Salifu secured the victory for the new bees.
The Rainbow team have now picked up a second defeat in four friendlies thus far, winning the other two against Tema Youth and Adabraka Welders. Their initial loss came against Togolese champions Asko de Kara last Monday.
The Double winners will continue their preparations to face Kamsar as the team look to engage in an international friendly in the coming days before the preliminary tie on Sunday, September 19 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
