Dr Prosper Ogum Nartey, Asante Kotoko’s head coach, has expressed his delight with his team’s recent performance versus WAFA.
On matchday 27 of the Ghana Premier League, the Porcupine Warriors won against West Africa Football Academy [WAFA] at the Sogakope Red Bull arena on Saturday afternoon.
The Porcupine Warriors broke the game’s deadlock in the 65th minute through Cameroonian sharpshooter Frank Mbella Etuoga, after a goalless draw in unrelenting end-to-end action at halftime.
Coach Prosper Ogum, who is overjoyed at his team’s return to winning ways, praised them for playing more by the instructions than in their previous two defeats to RTU and Legon Cities.
“If you look at the RTU game and the Legon Cities game, this looks better, this looks more compact, more teamwork, more disciplined, more determined, more hungry team to win comparative to the RTU and the [Legon] Cities game.” He told StarTimes after sinking WAFA at home
“I think they looked very disciplined on the touchline, they played with my voice, tactically what we did throughout the week and what we did yesterday concerning how WAFA was going to play, we created more chances than WAFA which is unusual when you play at Sogakope. He added
“But then we allowed them to possess the ball and anytime we got the ball, we tried as much as possible to transition quickly and it was one of those transitions that [Andrews] Appau gave the penetrative pass,” he concluded.
The Porcupine Warriors will host Aduana Stars next in the matchday 28 of the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
