Heart of Lions coach Sarfo Castro has admitted his side struggled to cope with RTU’s play in the first half of Saturday’s Premier League win.
The Giant Killers had to rally from a goal down to beat a ten-man Real Tamale United at the Kpando Park.
A goalkeeping howler by former Ghana U-17 shot-stopper Joseph Addo gifted RTU the opener in the 15th minute through Abdul Yusif Aziz but Franklyn Osei darted a low drive home from a rebound six minutes before recess to level the scoring.
Daniel Acqauye then secured the points with a 73rd minute penalty.
Castro says dressing room talks during the interval played a crucial role in the win.
“Most of them are new players so it was very difficult for them playing in the home grounds in the first half so I decided to introduce the experienced ones in the second half and that paid for us,” the former Kotoko No.2 said after the post-match interview.
“If we want to be among the top four clubs we have to work.”
