GPL: Karela United stay top as Hearts fail to capitalise

Karela United maintained their grip on top of the Ghana Premier League table after recording a 0-0 draw with Great Olympics on Saturday afternoon.

Olympics, who were the hosts on the day, were looking to build on last week’s victory over Inter Allies but this time, they were unable to find the net.

The Accra-based side have earned 15 points so far in the competition.

The Oly Dade boys have been generally disappointing in recent weeks, recording just one victory in their last five league games.

Karela, in comparison, have amassed 10 points in their last six league matches and 18 overall.

The Ayinase-based side are just two points above four other clubs at the top of the table.

One of those four clubs include Hearts of Oak who failed to secure a victory during their trip to face Berekum Chelsea.

The game was generally a dull one but Hearts can thank goalkeeper Richmond Ayi who stopped a goal-bound effort in the first half.

The result leaves rivals Kotoko (16) with an opportunity to leapfrog the Phobians in their upcoming game.

For Berekum Chelsea, the result is fairly disappointing as they are just one spot above the relegation zone (15th) with 10 points.
