Hearts lacked killer intsinct upfront against Kotoko - Duncan

Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan

By Ameenu Shardow

Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan admits his side did not have enough firepower to hurt Asante Kotoko.

The Phobians grinded out a 0-0 draw with the champions at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

The draw has been hailed by several Hearts of Oak faithfuls considering problems the team has been saddled with in recent times.

And Duncan who assumed the reigns of the team a few days ahead of their away trip to Kotoko says a lot more work needs to be done to improve the forward lines.

“This is a team that hasn’t played together for a long time, the telepathy is not there,” he said.

“So what we had to do was to put a lot of men behind the ball and try to catch them on the counter.

“But as you saw, we didn’t have the men to do that. So it is an area we need to improve”

Hearts are now 1oth in the Ghanaian top flight haven won two, drawn two and lost three in the seven matches played so far.

      @ KERRY WHY NOT, ALHAJI LAMINE WAS SAYING KOTOKO WOULD BURN HEARTS AND ISHARK WAS COMMENTING THAT I SHOULD SHUT UP TOO I KNOW IT WOULD BE A DRAW, MATTER FACT KOTOKO IS NOT LIKE THE TIME OF COACH MAX KONADU LAST SEASON THEY LACK SOME PERDIGREE IN THE TEAM, BUYING A LOT OF PLAYERS IS NOT THE KEY, THEY HAVE TO PLAY AS A TEAM NOT SELFISH TO SCORE AND GET FAME, THAT WAS WHAT THEY DID YESTERDAY, WITH COACH DUNCAN WITH HEARTS OF OAK NOW HE IS GOING TO TRANSFORM HEARTS FIRST GAME WITH KOTOKO,HE KNOWS WHAT THE TEAM LACKS, AND IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

  4. Fresher says:

    Hearts of Oaks are known to celebrate defeat by a lower margin to Kotoko over the years, so what do you expect from Hearts of Oaks when they draw against Kotoko? Certainly, They would be on cloud nine of course. Hearts of Oaks did not give the fans their monies worth in yesterday’s match, when kotoko were playing good football distributing the balls and stringing their passes together, Hearts of Oaks players were roaming on the pitch like out-of-sorts-flies in a cage kickboxing and hacking their opponents like in a rugby sport. Kotoko and Hearts of Oaks made equal signings during the transfer window, David Duncan has every reason to celebrate this draw and even brag that his players lack cutting edge potency because Kotoko players let his team off the hook by squandering goal scoring opportunities which could have sunk the Oaktree under goals. David Duncan has lost more than 90% of his matches against kotoko, so when he celebrates this draw, I will never begrudge him, because as to him it was an unprecedented achievements worthy of patting himself on the back and saying he had done exceptionally well. People (COACHES) like David Duncan are called REVELERS IN MEDIOCRITY,

    S hearts is now happy for drawng with Kotoko. They were useless on the court. Only lucky Kotoko threw away all the chances

  6. Jah Guide says:

    @freshner Are you telling me that Kotoko gave their fans their Monies worth is yesterday’s Game without winning the match which they Bragged so much about?
    What a double Standard
