David Ocloo, the assistant coach of Hearts of Oak, has commended his team for their resilience in their hard-fought 1-1 draw against Gold Stars at Dun’s Park.
The Rainbow team came close to a loss on Saturday in their BetPawa Premier League matchday 21 clash, but they were saved by Isaac Mensah’s goal in the dying minutes of the game, cancelling out Evans Owusu’s trademark strike.
When asked if he was satisfied with the outcome of the game, Ocloo responded, “Yes. We started with a 4-2-3-1 in the first half but we couldn’t contain them in the middle so I had to adjust and change to a 4-4-2 diamond in the second half, and you could see that we dominated play when we came and my boys were moving well. We had a clear penalty, but I don’t want to talk about it. The referee denied us.”
He further stated, “This is the hallmark of a good team. We were down a goal, but we fought back and got a draw. I’m impressed, and kudos to the boys,” after the game.
