Kotoko coach Draman backs misfiring striker Acheampong

Posted On Wednesday, 28th November 2012

Kotoko coach Mas-ud Draman has backed Ben Acheampong to rediscover the form that made him a feared Premier League marksman.

The 22-year-old plundered 9 league goals last season last term but this season the goals have not flowed as easily for the striker.

The former Ghana Under-23 goal poacher scored his first goal for the Porcupine Warriors in their 2-1 win at Tema Youth last Sunday.

The Asante Kotoko trainer has given shot-shy striker a licence to start killing teams after he ended his goal match drought at the Tema sports stadium.

“Ben has been instrumental in our game plan. I have ben working with him regarding plans for matches,” Draman said

“I don’t think there should be any source of worry. He is playing as a team member and I believe when he get the chance to score, he will score.”

Kotoko will host New Edubiase at home on Wednesday.

    I have watched him a couple of times this season,including the clash with Hearts and I was really impressed with his work rate.He was very wasteful against Hearts but he certainly caused so much problems for his opponents.Kotoko’s play in the second half of that game centered around him. He was the only real threat upfront for his team.All the other strikers on the day were not much involved.His ability to move deep into his team’s half to take balls and run at defenders was a marvel.He possess so much strength on his runs and dribbles when necessary.He is a good player by all standards but one could clearly see that he had become quiet rusty by virtue of his non involvement with the rest of his colleagues from the start of the season due to the alleged problem he had with the Kotoko management.I believe he will help a lot if the Coach is able to bring the best out of his talent.He is a player to watch,if he remains a disciplined player.He however needs to work on his crosses and the timing of laying passes in the final third,just as we witnessed against Hearts,when he run very well with the ball and instead of laying a pass for his colleagues to score at the critical moments,his final delivery ended up frustrating his colleagues and the entire Fabulous fans who watched the game. He must be watched well to protect his talent to the benefit of all.
