Hearts of Oak went into the game with a 7 year winless run against the Hunters at Bechem – but Ibrahim Salifu’s second half strike gave them their third away win in the season.
The former Eleven Wonders midfielder weaved his way through the defence of Bechem United and smashed the ball into the bottom corner – beating goalkeeper Isaac Asempa for the opener.
