By Akyereko Frimpong Manson

Hearts of Oak posted a comfortable 3-1 win over second-tier side King Solomon in a warm-up friendly on Friday afternoon. 

Mohammed Polo had the chance to assess the progress of his side ahead of the resumption of the Ghana Premier League as they hammered the Division One League side at the ATTC Park.

The gifted Eric Kumi shot the Phobians in front early in the first half with a sublime finish.

Ten minutes after the break, Selasi Adjei doubled the lead for Hearts after tabbing in from close range following a lightening combination from Larweh and Kofi Abanga.

After 77 minutes, Paul Acquah rifled home a powerful low drive to the bottom right corner to increase the tally for Hearts.

Just before the end, third-choice goalkeeper Kingsley Kissi allowed in a cheap goal as Solomon pulled a goal back.

Hearts will step up their preparations with another game against Starke FC on Sunday at Dunkwaw.
