Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu aimed a dig at Asante Kotoko after the goalless draw in the first league meeting of the season between the two giants.
“This was not one of our best games, our best game of the first round was against Legon Cities, if we had used our junior team (Auroras) against them today, Kotoko can still not score us,” Boadu told reporters.
Meanwhile, Hearts of Oaks left-back Dennis Korsah, who was named the man of the match, was disappointed by the result as he believed they were the better team and deserved to win.
“This was not the true reflection of the game, you could see that we created a lot of chances, it was just unfortunate that we couldn’t punish them,” he said.
The draw leaves Hearts of Oak 12 points behind Kotoko after the first round.
