Head coach of Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has admitted that the absence of duo, goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi and central defender, Mohammed Alhassan affected their plans against rivals, Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
The Phobians clawed from Yussif Mubarik’s 58th minute opener to draw 1-1 courtesy Caleb Amankwa’s leveller in Week Three of the Ghana Premier League.
Samuel Boadu said: “We missed them, their absence took away the team’s spirit but with them I believe the subsequent matches they will be available by then.
“So they will see a different Hearts of Oak.” Samuel Boadu told StarTimes.
Hearts of Oak went into the game under much pressure having earned just a point from their two opening games.
They lost 1-0 at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa before managing to draw 1-1 against regional rivals, Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium in Week Two.
