Ebusua Dwarfs head coach Ernest Thompson Quartey has heaped praise on his players despite losing 1-0 to Asante Kotoko in their Ghana Premier League matchday seven outstanding match.
A lone strike from Christopher Nettey in 70th minute was enough to seal all three points for the Porcupine Warriors at the Cape Coast stadium.
The defeat sees Dwarfs remain in 11th place in the league table after nine matches played so far.
"The kitchen was too hot for Gama and you saw it. That is why he was taken off. I said it before the game and I'm justified," coach Thompson said after game, as reported by Footballmadeinghana.
"Before the game, I said that we were going to neutralize some of their players and you can see that Kwame Poku was a passenger in the game.
"We took our legs off the pedal and they took advantage of it to punish us. But in all, my boys did well. Everyone saw it.
"I am very proud of my boys. They performed well but we lost at the end. But I am happy with the performance."
