Accra Hearts of Oak’s acting managing director, Vincent Sowah Odotei, says the club is unhappy
dropping two points in their last premier league match against defending champions, Ashanti
Gold at the Accra Sports Stadium, Wednesday.
Hearts missed the chance of stretching their lead at the summit of the league table after drawing
at home to the Miners on Match Day 22.
Hearts of Oak’s captain, Robin Gnagne, opened the scoring from the spot in the 30th minute before Ash Gold responded through Anthony Yarful 11 minutes later to earn his team a lifeline.
Hearts created a few chances in the second half but were unable to convert any, a problem coach
Sergio Daniel Tragui has admitted.
A despondent Sowah Odotei spoke to reporters after the game. “We are all disappointed. I believe the fans deserved better but that is football.
“We really have to find out the reason why we find it very difficult to play here at the Accra sports stadium. But at
the end of the day, we are one point better than all our competitors.
“We would have wished to take all three points but at least, we have taken one point. So, we will go
back, have a meeting with the technical team and the players find out exactly why (a) few days ago,
they were superb, and today, they disappointed.”
Hearts have another daunting task on Match Day 23 when they travel to face West African
Football Academy (WAFA) in Sogakope on August 7.
