We Will Do Our Best to Win Every Game - AshantiGold Coach

AshantiGold left it late to beat title contenders, Hearts of Oak 1-0 at the Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.

The week 19 fixture of the 2020/21 Ghana premier league saw the Phobians squandering a perfect opportunity to go in front in the first half.

The 20 time premier league winners were awarded a penalty on the 16th minute against AshantiGold but striker, Victor Aidoo sent the ball into the arms of Kofi Mensah in goal for AshantiGold.

The Miners held on to their guns until the break with Hearts of Oak equally failing to score.

With full time done and five added minutes to play, AshantiGold had the opportunity through the penalty spot on the 92nd minute.

Captain Amos Addai made no mistake in beating Benjamin Mensah in goal for Hearts of Oak.

The solitary strike eventually separated the two sides after the entire duration.

AshantiGold coach, Romain Folz said after the game.

“I think we deserved the win, I’m most proud of the players as I was in the previous game against Karela.

“I just think we deserved the win.

“We just said before the game and before every game that we will do our best to win every single game.

“Today [against Hearts of Oak ] it was the case so we are happy.

“I think we need to have. Solid defensive base and it is the case today[against Hearts of Oak] and that is going to be my motto to the rest of the season.

“I think defensively we have quality but I think defensively if we can be better than other teams, I think it will take us to a better place.” Romain Folz said.

AshantiGold climb into 9th on the league table with 26 points from 19 games.

AshantiGold have probably an easy task against struggling side, King Faisal on match-day 20 in Techiman.

AshantiGold have recorded six wins, eight draws and five defeats.
