Lower-tier side Glow-Lamp Academy edged Accra Hearts of Oak 2-1 in a preseason friendly in Abreshia on Wednesday morning.

Abubakar Traore shot the Phobians in the lead after a frantic start to the game before Solomon Kojo Antwi restored parity for the hosts to end the half 1-1.

Both sides had more than enough chances to win the game after the recess but the most decisive touch of the second half was by Rashad Baba Sulley who scored to secure a famous victory for the Academy lads.

Hearts of Oak are currently pitching camp in Cape Coast where they are set to play two more friendlies this weekend.

Kim Grant’s side will next face the Cape Coast Vipers on Saturday before they conclude the action-packed week with another test against lower Division outfit Sky FC on Sunday.

The Ghana Premier League giants are continuing their preparations ahead of the upcoming season.
