Sam Adams’ perfect strike inside the added time of the first half, helped Aduana FC stun defending champions, Hearts of Oak at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Sunday.
The Phobians went into the game day 20 with some positives from their 2-1 win over WAFA in week 19 at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
Adams’ low and well cut in strike from the right side of the goal area however beat Richmond Ayi who replaced injured Richard Attah. Hearts coach, Samuel Boadu talks about the loss which sees them out of the top five on the standings.
“This is football, you could see that the boys did well, they played well but it’s quite unfortunate [we lost].
“We got the first chance to score and we didn’t score and the goal that they scored is not a chance that they got and they punished us but the boys tried to fight back but it’s quite unfortunate we could not equalize,” Samuel Boadu told StarTimes.
“That’s why we always train, so these are the mistakes we have identified and will work on them. “It takes time to correct those mistakes of the attackers so that the goals will start coming.” He added.
The defeat is Hearts of Oak’s fourth in away games and that leaves them with 29 points in 6th position after 20 games.
Hearts of Oak have now won seven times, drawn eight games and lost five times on the road.
They trail arch rivals and leaders, Asante Kotoko by 15 points and their defence looks extremely bleak.
Hearts of Oak will host AshantiGold in week 21 on March 20 at the Accra Sports Stadium, a side that beat them 2-0 at the Len Clay Stadium in the first round.
