Each member of the Accra Hearts of Oak playing body that made the trip to Bamako will pocket an amount of $700 as reward package for beating Djoliba AC on Friday evening.

The Phobians took a giant step towards sealing qualification into the next stage of the CAF Confederations Cup competition as they beat Malian side Djoliba AC 1- 2 in the first-leg tie at the Stade Moibo Keita in Bamako.

And in reward, board chairman Togbui Afede XI and management of the club have rewarded the players with US$700 each, with $200 as being their per diems.

Two second half goals from Gilbert Fiamenyo and Paul Acquah took Hearts of Oak into a blossom lead before Itanga Diarra reduced the deficit for the home side from the spot.

The win, however, makes the second leg encounter in Accra a mere formality.

Hearts take on Djoliba in the reverse fixture on Sunday May 3 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
