We conceded cheap goal against Great Olympics, says Hearts of Oak ace Gladson Awako

Published on: 19 September 2022

Hearts of Oak midfielder, Gladson Awako, has expressed his displeasure following his side's 1-1 draw game against  Great Olympics in the Mantse derby on Sunday.

In the matchday 2 games, the Phobians hosted their city-rivals at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Abdul Razak broke the deadlock for the Wonder Club but new signing Konadu Yiadom scored a header in the 89th minute to secure a point for the home side.

Awako speaking after the game reiterated that his side conceded a cheap goal.

“We gave out a cheap goal which didn’t help our confidence and that helped our opponents to come in and feel they can also play. This is something I think didn’t go well for us,” he said during the post-match conference.

Awako added that though they are not content with the result, they will work on their game and try harder for the remainder of the season.

“We are disappointed with the results. We were better, we looked good throughout the 90 minutes but as I said mistakes do happen that didn’t help us. We we will pick up the wrongs and go again,” he noted.

“It’s a tough game and we will pass through. It’s not easy we just started and I know staff are doing everything possible for us to know each other.”

Hearts of Oak will hope to secure their first win of the season against Asante Kotoko in the matchday 3 games at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
