Hearts of Oak assistant coach Joseph Asare Bediako believes his side had enough chances to win Friday’s Ghana Premier League match week 4 game against Karela United.
The Phobians missed out on victory at home as they were held to a goalless at the Accra Sports Stadium. The result means Hearts have gone three games without a win scoring two and conceding three.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, the former Berekum Chelsea coach said they would have walked away with the maximum points had his players been clinical in front of goal.
“It’s very sad, to me I will say is a very sad situation because we got all the chances but we wasted it,”
Asked what the problem is, he said, “I don’t know maybe I will say loss of concentration on the part of the players. We supposed to psych them, We’ve psyching them up for all this while but I don’t know because you see this glaring chances which they just have to nod in but they couldn’t”
The first half looked dull with the two teams looking uninspiring and undesirous. They failed to create goal scoring opportunities before the halftime whistle.
The Phobians came close in the 50th minute but Michelle Sarpong’s effort graced the woodwork after some good work by Patrick Razak.
They increased the pace of the game especially on the flanks where Patrick Razak and Raddy Ovouka operated. In the 79th minute, Patrick Razak created space for himself and run into the box in search of a goal but he was seemed to have been brought down by a Karela United player but his penalty shout was denied by the referee.
Kwame Obeng Junior also found himself in a good position to score but he shot wide after going round his marker in the 82nd minute.
The Phobians kept pilling pressure in the dying embers of the game but that yielded no dividend as the referee blew his whistle for the end of the game.
The result takes Karela United to 8 points while Hearts of Oak stretch their winless run to three, with a game in hand.
Hearts have only managed two points from the three matches they have played so far. They drew (2-2) with AshatiGold and lost 1-0 to Inter Allies.
