2021 Ghana Premier League: Elmina Sharks coach Yaw Acheampong content with draw against Hearts of Oak

Published on: 11 January 2021

Elmina Sharks coach Yaw Acheampong is satisfied with his side's 1-1 stalemate against Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Sharks opened the scoring through midfielder James Bissue before they were reduced to 1o men.

Hearts equalised courtesy in-form forward Victor Aidoo as both sides shared the spoils on match day eight at the Nduom Park.

"It was a good match. Both teams played very very good," he said in a post-match interview. "Until the red card, so we had to do something to sustain the play. But generally, it was a good game," he added.

The ex-Ghana player was however disappointed by the goal his team conceded insisting they could have defended better.

"When the defenders started moving, the right half should have covered his line but he didn't and the goalkeeper should have communicated with him too. It was a cheap goal we conceded," said the gaffer.

Elmina Sharks are currently 11th on the league table with 10 points from eight games, while Hearts of Oak occupy the 5th position with 12 points.

Sharks will make a short trip to Techiman to play King Faisal on match day nine of the Ghana Premier League.
