Stand-in Hearts of Oak coach, Edward Nii Odoom believes his team continued their positive progression despite the 2-1 home defeat to rivals Asante Kotoko in Sunday’s Super Clash.
Justice Blay opened the scoring 11 minutes into Sunday’s Super Clash but striker Joseph Esso pulled parity for the Phobians not long after the hour mark.
Guinean import Naby Keita Laye converted a crucial 90th-minute penalty to secure Kotoko the bragging rights from the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League match-day six fixture.
Nii Odoom chose to praise his charges after the epic tie.
“Nothing went wrong for us, my boys played very well,” he opined during a post-match presser.
“You could see how we were dictating the pace of the game.
“But lack of communication cost us a bit. But it was a good performance. If I watch what the team is doing from where we are coming from, I think it’s perfect.”
Hearts lie 12th position on the league log with 7 points on the 18-club league. They travel to face Dreams FC next Sunday at the Dawu Park.
