Interim Hearts of Oak head coach, Edward Odoom, has praised the mental strength and toughness of the team’s players after their Week 5 victory at Liberty Professionals in the Ghana Premier League.
The Phobians struck twice in the last five minutes of the match to win 2-1 in Dansoman after conceding a 1st minute goal from Michael Sefa.
Bernard Arthur and Kofi Kordzi got the goals for Hearts as they went unbeaten in three league matches. After the match, Odoom highlighted just how strong his team was on the day.
“We are a work in progress at the moment and the players are showing determination, good character and the will to win.
In terms of the tactics we used to win today’s match, we went with something similar to what we did at WAFA. We defended deeply but we decided to edge a counter-attacking threat to us and on play on the break.”
After a tough start to the league that saw them losing their first two matches to Berekum Chelsea and Medeama, Hearts are now on 7 points after getting wins against Dwarfs and Liberty and a draw at WAFA
They face arch rivals, Asante Kotoko, in their next Ghana Premier League in Accra on January 26.
