Hearts of Oak Coach Frank Elliot Nuttall says losing to Tema Youth in their match-day 7 Ghana Premier League game at the Tema Stadium was just unfortunate.

Tema Youth recorded a 2-1 win over Hearts on Wednesday.

Thomas Abbey's goal in the 48th minute had put Hearts on the brink of snatching a draw, with Frank Nuttall's side having shown ample improvement from a chastening first half where Joseph Paintsil had given Tema Youth the advantage.

"We prepared very well for the match. The players were well recovered for the game, the team's selection was spot on, the tactics was also good but our individual mistakes made things complicated for us."

"Mistakes are bound to happen in football but I must give credit to the players for recovering after, and we could have gotten something at the end but it's unfortunate we leave here empty handed."
