Head coach of Ashanti Gold CK Akonnor has admitted that his side failed to come to the party in their game against Dwarfs on match day 13 of the Zylofon Cash Premier League at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
The Obuasi giants lost 2-0 to the home side thanks to strikes from Amos Nkrumah and Aikins Asante.
“We didn’t do well,” he said after the game. “Today, Dwarfs showed more character and more attitude and played more for a win,” he said.
“We were very poor in every area of the game and if there is any positive from us, it was the first half. We did a little bit better in the first half but we were very poor in the second half.”
The former Premier League champions travelled to Cape Coast on the day of the game and it was believed the players were fatigued. But Akunor is adamant to make an excuse of that claiming the team did not play well.
“For instance we travelled today from Obuasi to the match today and that is a bit unusual and so we will try and correct some of this things but that is not the reason we lost.
“We came here on the same day when we beat Hearts but you see the league has travelled for a long time so there was a little bit of tiredness. There are some small things we have to rectify. It is not about complacency we were just poor today,” he concluded.
Ashanti Gold are currently third on the log sheet with 21 points.
