These players need to start from the bench knowing they are recovering from injury-Wontumi sports

With a change in system since his arrival, the Hearts squad have had to live with a new more complex 4-1-3-1-1 approach to games, forcing all to work extra to cover the remaining grass.

With William Dankyi, Frederick Ansah Botchway, and Benjamin Afutu Kotey all playing in different roles, Hearts of Oak looks more fluid in midfield, and combine power, Skills, and artistry movement to opposition goal area. For Hearts coach Kosta Papic, the Wonder Club deserved the win after their impressive display, but he wanted his players to put the defeat behind them and refocus on their upcoming match against Medeama on Wednesday.

If Papic know this there was no need for him to start Aziz and Nettey. A former player and one-time coach of Hearts, Yaw Preko, told the media at a post-match conference that the initial game plan was to be switching tactics but later decided to stick to his tactics after the first half when they realized it had worked for Olympics. ''Two big mistakes and he conceded the goals and after that we tried our best but the ball doesn't want to go into the net. Football is like that sometimes,'' Papic told StarTimes in a post-match speech.

''Second half we played a little bit better than the first but my midfielders struggled to do the job we wanted. The return of the trio remains a boost for the Phobians who are looking to returning to winning ways following their 1-1 stalemate with Elmina Sharks in their last league outing.

Announcing the return of the players, the club’s official Twitter page wrote “Lawali, Nurudeen and Nettey resumes training. Midfield general, Lawali joined his team mates in today's training session after few weeks of absence due to a minor injury. He was cleared by the team's medical team after close observation”.

The absence of these injured players has cost Hearts of Oak but that doesn't mean you should fix them in the starting eleven. No coach will risk that chance to play half fit players in midfield.
