Special Competition: Kim Grant insists Hearts of Oak are determined to win remaining matches

Published on: 16 May 2019

Kim Grant, Hearts of Oak trainer says his outfit are poised to win their remaining two matches against Elmina Sharks and Dreams FC.

The Phobians have been on an impressive run in the ongoing Normalization Committee Special Competition.

With two matches to end the competition, Hearts of Oak yesterday beat Karela United 1-0, courtesy a Christopher Bonney penalty goal in the 74th minute to book their slot in the semi-finals of the competition, making them the first team to qualify for the next stage of the competition.

In a post-match interview, the former Ebusua Dwarfs technical director asserted that the remaining two matches were as important as those they had already played.

“Two more games to go is important we win those games and move on,” Grant asserted.

He further said in spite of the earlier setbacks, he remained focused and had firm belief that his boys would turn their fortunes around.

“People don’t know me, but I want them to appreciate that I believe in my abilities, so I didn’t worry when they criticised me in the beginning,” he affirmed

“We learnt from our mistakes when we lost against Sharks and Karela at Anyinasi, although we lost those  two encounters, my team played very well, so I trust them.”

Accra Hearts of Oak will play against  Elmina Sharks at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday before encountering Dreams FC in their last match at Dawu.
