Former Black Stars goalkeeper Sammy Adjei was the toast of fans at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park at Dormaa-Ahenkro yesterday as his heroics saved visiting Accra Hearts of Oak from defeat at the hands of Aduana Stars in their scoreless match of the second week GHALCA Top 4.
Adjei, who was making a comeback after a long lay-off, had to dig deep into his rich experience to make some hair-raising saves in the last 10 minutes of the game to the admiration of the large crowd which watched the match.
Defending Premier League champions Aduana Stars, determined to carry the day with their famous ‘one-goal project’ in mind, mounted incessant pressure on Hearts late in the game, but goalkeeper Adjei who is knocking at the doors of the Black Stars, denied them victory.
The match failed to live up to its pre-match hype as both teams bored the fans with their disjointed play for most part of the afternoon.
Contrary to expectations, Aduana did not feature former Hearts striker Bernard Dong Bortey, who played against Ashantigold in their opening game at Obuasi last Sunday.
