Hearts of Oak’s new 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 on Wednesday.
Hearts missed the chance of stretching their lead at the summit of the league table after drawing at home with the Miners on match day 22 as Ash Gold staged a spirited performance to hold the Phobians to a pulsating 1-1 game.
Hearts of Oak’s Captain, Robin Gnagne, opened the scores from the spot in the 30th minute before Ash Gold responded through Anthony Yarful eleven minutes later to earn a lifeline.
Hearts created few chances in the second half but were unable to convert any, a problem coach Sergio Daniel Tragui admitted to.
Speaking to some reporters on the side after the game, Mr Sowah Odotei revealed that they were disappointed, having dropped two points on the day but would go back and work things out for the next games.
“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. I would have a meeting with the technical team and the players to find out exactly why a few days ago, they were superb but today, they disappointed.”
Hearts will have another daunting task to accomplish next when they travel to face the West African Football Academy in Sogakope on August 7 this year.
