Hearts coach laments wasteful team

HrbrtACCRA Hearts of Oak coach Herbert Addo expressed his frustration at his side’s profligacy in front of goal after the capital club slipped into the relegation zone.

The Phobians suffered their four defeat of the season in a 1-0 reverse at Heart of Lions on Sunday.

“We played well and had the clearest of chances in the first half of which the strikers had to scored but they wasted all the glorious moments that felt their way,” he said.

“We could not utilize the chances that fell our way, Lions took charge of the second half and did the damage.”

Hearts are now 15th on the league table with eight points from the possible 24.

On the contrary, Heart of Lions chief executive Randy Abbey is refusing to jubilate over his side’s surge in form this season.

Lions are in contention for the Ghana Premier League after back-to-back win lifted them to third on the table.

Osman Muntaka scored the only goal of the match as the Kpando-based side coasted to a 1-0 win over Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

Coach Yusif Abubakar’s men are hitting form at the right time and now considered serious title contenders.

But chief executive Randy Abbey is not in a hurry to talk up their title ambitions.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game because they have some good players.

“But the boys promised me of victory when I met them and we thank God we managed to pick the maximum points.

“We take games as it comes. We’re not in a hurry to talk about title chances. It’s one game after the other and then we see how it ends up.”

Lions travel to Obuasi to face Ashantigold in the top liner tomorrow.

*The GN Bank Division One League kicked off over the weekend across the country.
