NC SPECIAL COMPETITION: GRANT PLEASED WITH HIS PLAYERS DESPITE ELMINA SHARKS DEFEAT.

Hearts Coach Kim Grant happy with the performance of his players ,despite losing by a lone goal to his former club Elmina Sharks in match day two of the Normalization Committee’s Special Competition.

The coach stressed his side started the game slowly but grew up in the game and created a lot of chances in the second half but failed to capitalize which led to their defeat.

“We lost that is what I can say. We played well in the second half. We started slowly in the first half. We created so many chances but we didn’t take our chances.

“As I saw at the half time, if we are not careful and if we are not focus, they could score from the break. Which they scored from counter attack.

“Overall I was quite pleased with the performance, they defended very well. They have done well.

“My player’s gave me everything I can’t ask for more,” he told the media after the game.

Hearts of Oak will be looking to get back to winning when they face Karela United on Sunday.
