“Honestly I knew it is going to be a difficult game and I knew the way they were going to play the whole game.
“I know they were going to sit back in the first half then in the second half they will open up and that was exactly what they did.
“And it was pressure on us until they had their penalty. “I also did some changes which definitely I knew those I’m bringing in are going to fight,” Annor Walker told StarTimes.
“It is my intention and my mind and readiness to win this match to get to the second position which I have got.
“So I’m really happy to be at that position so it’s left with the other matches which I’m going to prepare for them.” Annor Walker added.
The “Dadde” Boys now have 31 points, trailing league leaders, Asante Kotoko by nine after 18 matches.
