The Phobians could not maintain the tempo they started with against Kotoko in the Super Clash and their boss has shed light on the reasons behind it
Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has explained why his charges struggled at a point to contain Asante Kotoko in the goalless draw in the Super Clash on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Although, Hearts had a better start as compared to Kotoko, with Gladson Awako and Obeng Junior having several chances, they failed to make them count and later had to defend to keep Kotoko at bay.
And Boadu has revealed that his charges were tired at a point due to the pressing game they initially played.
Midfielder Sulley Muntari was ever present in Hearts set up but he was later substituted after picking up a yellow card to prevent him from seeing red card.
Kotoko still lead Ghana Premier League log with 37 points, seven points better than Bechem United who are in second position while they are twelve points better than Hearts of Oak.
