Special Competition: We had a bad day against Bechem United - Asante Kotoko coach C.K Akunnor

Published on: 09 May 2019

Asante Kotoko coach Charles Akunnor says his side had a bad day at the office following their 1-1 draw with Bechem United in the GFA Special Competition.

The Porcupine Warriors were held to draw by the Hunters in the Match-day 10 fixture of the competition.

The Reds conceded early in the game when Prince Adu Kwabena scored the opener for the 'Hunters' in the 3rd minute.

However, their lead lasted for just eight minutes when in-form attacker Abdul Fatawu Safiu equalised with a sensational free-kick to increased his tally to seven goals in the competition.

Speaking after the game, the 45-year-old gaffer says Kotoko could have won the match but his charges had a bad day in the office after missing all the clear-cut opportunities.

"I'm not happy with the result. We could have won the match even though Bechem United took us by surprise in the early minute of the game," the former Hearts of Oak and AshantiGold coach said.

"I think they (Bechem United) were very compact in the early minute of the game. They pressed us very well. We struggled to come out of it. But we were able to create chances but today (yesterday) wasn't good for us. We had a bad game. Kotoko have come to a level that we've to win every match and the fact that we drew today its a set back. But we'll continue to work hard to improve," he ended.

Kotoko are currently 2nd in Premier A of the Special Competition with 15 points.
