Hearts of Oak picked up their third consecutive Glo Premier League defeat in a 2-0 loss to Berekum Chelsea on Sunday at the Golden City Park.
The result leaves the Phobians just a place above the relegation zone after five rounds of matches in the league.
And the defeat picked up in Berekum piles the pressure on coach C.K. Akonnor after a somewhat good start to the season.
Former Asante Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe put Chelsea in front after four minutes, when he scored his first goal of the season since signing for the Berekum side.
Two minutes before the first half, Latif Salifu gave Chelsea a 2-0 lead to take his tally to three.
Hearts have four points from a maximum of 15 so far and their next meeting against Real Tamale United in Accra will prove crucial.
