Ashantigold Coach Charles Kwabena Akunor says he is disappointed by the performance of his side following their 2-1 defeat to Elmina Sharks in the Ghana Premier League match day 23.
The miners could not break a resolute Shark who were coming into the game after an away win in midweek against Liberty Professionals.
Eric Owusu opened and Benjamin Tweneboah scored for Sharks as Prince Owus grabbed the consolation for the miners. The defeat end Ashantigold’s unbeaten run under C.K Akunor in the second round.
Coach C.K Akunor who was speaking after the game revealed his disappointment but says the team will bounce back immediately.
“I am a little bit disappointed by the way we played not because we lost but the way and manner we played it, we were slow and tactically we were not discipline and a lot of things went wrong for us,” he said after the game.
“Defensively we didn’t do well at all and in the middle we were weak, we showed a lot of weakness today but we have to accept that, these guys took us by surprise. They were very discipline, they were very defensive and the only way we could attack them was to go through the wings and I kept saying it was difficult. Congratulations to them (Sharks). We have to go back to the drawing board.
The miners were forced into early substitutions in the game and Coach C.K Akunor explains the injury of Amos Addae really affected the team even though.
“Amos especially, Ocran I was going to change him anyway because he wasn’t doing well before he got injured. Amos is instrumental in the way we play so his injury affected us but today we didn’t do well at all.”
Ashantigold will next travel to Dansoman to face Liberty Professionals in a relegation threatened battle.
