Asante Kotoko head coach, Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has applauded his team’s display against WAFA in the opening fixture of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League at the Sogakofe Red Bulls Arena on Sunday.
Mohammed Aminu opened the scoring for the home side with a spectacular early free kick in the 3rd minute.
The Porcupine Warriors, however, hit back through Yakubu Mohammed, when he swiftly connected to divert Jordan Opoku’s powerful drive for the equalizer in the 18th minute
Both sides were aiming for the maximum points, but the home side would be more disappointed for not grabbing the maximum points, considering that it was their opening home game.
Speaking to reporters after the match, the former Ashgold trainer believes the result was the true reflection of the game but insisted his charges could have carried the day had they been fluent in attack.
“It was a very good game. WAFA still have a very good team, they played well but we came up with a strategy to leave here with the three points.
“Even though we drew we are happy with the result, we’ll go back to the drawing board and work harder to win our subsequent games.”
“Fortunately for me, I’ve not lost a game here before. I led inter Allies to draw here and also Berekum Arsenal, so when I was coming here I was very confident we’re going to take the three points. Our attack was a little bit slow and that cost us the win.”
