Asante Kotoko coach Steven Polack is confident his team’s goal-scoring problem will be resolved when their season starts with the Caf Confederation Cup in February.
The Porcupine Warriors struggled to kill teams off last season, scoring just 23 goals in the 16-team Ghana Premier League.
Attempts to shore up the attacking lines have come with quite some difficulty in the off-season and with Africa and domestic competitions fast approaching; there will be the need to find solutions to the wastefulness in front of goal.
Kotoko defeated Aduana Stars 2-0 in the Ghalca G8 Tournament last Sunday – making it three goals in as many games to win Group A of the competition.
“We played some good football but decision making has to be a bit better in the last third,” Polack acknowledged at the post-match conference after defeat Aduana Stars.
“We have to work on that before we play the big games because every game is a big game in the Confederations Cup. We would get it right and as I always say, if you don’t make mistakes, you don’t learn.
“There was a lot of improvement in the game. It was an improvement on a lot of the things that we needed to improve on. I am happy with the result and the attitude of the players was good.
“I was happy with the performance, especially in defence. You need to be committed, have the passion and desire in every game you go into.
“That is what my players would always have in whatever game they play whether a friendly game, a tournament or Caf game,” he added.
Asante Kotoko will face Hearts of Oak in the semifinals of the Ghalca G8 at the Kumasi Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
