Hearts of Oak’s new kid on the block, Manaf coast stadium this afternoon to gift the Capital based club all three vital points and maintain them at the summit of the zone B of the NC special competition.
The host had their noses in front as early as the 5th minute when Albert Hammond fired past onrushing Richmond Aryee to give Dwarfs the lead.

Manaf Umar who is found of scoring beautiful goals off late after his wonderful Curling strike outside the penalty box against WAFA fortnight ago at the Accra Sports, sent the visiting Rainbow supporters into wild jubilation at the Cape Coast stadium this afternoon when he was played through by Christopher Bonney, and he lobbed the ball wonderfully over the onrushing goal keeper to give the rainbow boys the deserving lead.
The hosts tried as much as they could but the visitors held on resolutely and maintained the narrow lead
The Bawku born youngster, Abdul Manaf Umar who only a few months ago was playing for Hearts junior side, Auroras is now set to become the next big thing in Ghana football should his scintillating form continue.
