4 things we learnt as Heart of Oak beat Wa All Stars 3-1

Goals from Selassie Bless Bakai, Joseph Esso and Cosmos Dauda were all the Phobians needed to bring smiles back to the faces of their demanding fans. 
Te Rainbow boys needed this victory badly especially at back of their loss to Chelsea on Sunday.
Here are 4 things we learnt from the Cape Coast stadium.
Wellington's game plan was spot on for Hearts
Heading into this game, Hearts' needed to show their teeth from the off. But their coach, Henry Wellington, urged caution from his side; he wanted a cool, calm calculated display all round, something that would contrast his recent approach to victories against Dwarfs and Dreams. 
Fully aware of All Stars' attacking threat, Hearts held back on going for the jugular, despite an electric atmosphere from every corner of the stadium. Instead, thanks to Henry Wellington, the Phobians bided their time until Selassie Bakai struck the first goal to set the stadium ablaze.
The fans had been growing restless until the deadlock was broken, but containing the visitors and coming alive later
on was always in his script and from the key moment they controlled the game.
Joseph Esso scored from the spot and Cosmos Dauda scored the third with Kinsley Osei getting the consolation for the visitors. 
Without the amount of calumny, the Hearts gaffer has been entreated to, Wellington deserves huge credit for an impressive result.
Sarfo Castro faces huge challenge to transform Wa All Stars
Sarfo Castro requires a commodity that money cannot buy if he's to.make Wa All Stars a respected force on the local scene. Time.
The former Berekum Chelsea coach replaced Alhaji Sokpari weeks ago. He drew his first game last weekend. Yet it was a largely drab, uninspiring stuff from his charges as Hearts made All Stars look like mugs at times in the first half. Castro has no magic wand and will need time to truly stamp his mark on the squad – with an improved second-half display not enough to save All Stars from defeat.
Kodie has a big future ahead.
Powerful, skilful and possessing a fantastic eye
for a pass, it is easy to see why he's become fans favourite overtime. 
He did not need to dominate proceedings to show
his quality; that was clear from the first half performance in particular. he acted more as the link between the defence and attack without moving too far forward himself; shifting from left to right, he patrolled his area brilliantly, coming out on top in the battle against All Stars'
deliberately narrow midfield. He won a penalty for Hearts which was expertly converted by Joseph Esso.
Cosmos Dauda shows signs of finding his best form
Last season was a very difficult season for  Cosmos Dauda. After a sterling debut season with the Phobians, much was expected from the former Mighty Jets man but that wasn't to be. The first few games of the season was torrid for him that culminated in him losing his position to teenager Bless Bakai.  
Cosmos however showed glimpses of his old self in their defeat to Chelsea on Sunday and replicated his fine output yesterday. 
The striker stood up to the physical battering  that agricultural Isshaku Konda offered and gave the Phobian the third goal to cushion them to victory.
