Head coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu says Asante Kotoko were lucky to have walked away with a draw on Sunday after both sides shared the spoils in a thrilling encounter.
Asante Kotoko maintained their 12-point lead over Hearts of Oak after both sides played out a goalless draw in the first meeting of the season at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
With all at stake for the Phobians, they failed to capitalize on the chances they had to cut down the gap between themselves and their archrivals.
Speaking after the draw, Samuel Boadu stated that the game was not the best the Phobians had played this season and rues the chances his side missed against Fabulous.
“This was not one of our best games, our best game of the first round was against Legon Cities, if we had used our junior team (Auroras) against them today, Kotoko can still not score us,” Boadu told reporters.
“This was not the true reflection of the game, you could see that we created a lot of chances, it was just unfortunate that we couldn’t punish them,” he said.
Hearts of Oak are now 8th on the league table with Asante Kotoko sitting atop of the league.
