GPL 2023/24: Hearts of Oak lose to GoldStars

Hearts of Oak faces another defeat in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday as they lost to Bibiani GoldStars.

Mawuli Wayo came off the bench to score the only goal of the game at the Accra Sports Stadium with the Miners taking advantage of a blunder by the Hearts goalkeeper.
