Ghana referee, Rustum Gameli Sernogbe denied Hearts of Oak a clear opportunity to silence their noisy regional rivals, Great Olympics on Sunday.
Isaac Mensah’s long range effort struck underneath Great Olympics’ cross-bar, landed behind the goal line per later video checks but the officials had other ideas.
The “Mantse” derby as a result of that denial ended 1-1 after the entire duration but Hearts of Oak coach, Samuel Boadu says his side should have been awarded the goal.
“It’s a good game, Olympics they did well.
“We got a lot of chances to score but the linesman disallowed.
“The Isaac Mensah’s goal I think the ball crossed the line, it’s a clear goal but the linesman disallowed.
“But I don’t want to talk about the officiating because that goal should have been awarded.
“If we can get the goal line technology, it can help.” Samuel Boadu said.
Notwithstanding the draw, Hearts of Oak share 50 points with rivals, Kotoko but the Phobians lead the pack on superior goal difference.
