Asante Kotoko's head coach, Prosper Ogum Narteh, is pleased with his team's effort in Sunday's tie with Hearts of Oak.
When the two teams met at the Accra Sports Stadium, the chief was looking for another victory over Samuel Boadu, but both team couldn't score a goal and this led to a tie.
Kotoko had more chances to score against their opponent. Richard Attah made two good saves from Richmond Lamptey and Franck Mbella Etouga, while Georges Mfegue and Dickson Afoakwa also came close but did not touch the ball.
"It was a beautiful effort from my side," the Kotoko coach said during the post - match press conference, "We looked really compact, we played some nice ball on the field, we created many chances that we could have scored but then we couldn't make it." Coming on the road and playing in the manner that we did is good for the boys, good for the squad, and good for the team's confidence."
"The chances arrived, but we couldn't make it,"he said of his team's wasted opportunities. That's how the game goes sometimes; you get your chances, you don't make them, and you lose, or the game finishes in a tie. So, despite the fact that we've been scoring two or three goals in every game, I believe we had chances to score but were unable to do so, so it's fine."
Despite dropping two crucial points in Sunday's match, the Porcupine Warriors(Asante Kotoko) still lead the Ghana Premier League by seven points after the first half of the season.
