A last-gasp header from Enock Asuboteng saw Hearts of Oak snatch all three points at the Accra Sports Stadium over Kotoku Royals in the BetPawa Premier League matchday 22.
The strugglers, who defeated Bechem United 3-1 in their last fixture came into the game with a positive vibe. They surprised the fans with an impressive football despite their position on the league table.
They had some glorious opportunities in the first half but they failed to utilize it.
It was a day for a Rainbow side who played in front of their cherished supporters.
Having struggled to score, the Phobians had to wait until the final moments to seal a 1-0 victory through energetic Caleb Amankwaa in a match that was destined to end goalless.
Amankwaa gave the Phobians the needed win after jumping high to connect a free-kick from from Salifu Ibrahim.
The former WAFA defender was sent off after scoring the winning goal but his goal was enough to aid the Phobians as they secure all the three points.
The result leaves Hearts of Oak in fourth place, while Kotoku Royals sit 17th with 17 points.
Hearts of Oak will travel to play Karela United at the CAM Park on week 23.
