Player Ratings – Accra Hearts of Oak 1-0 Dreams FC

Despite an impressive showing in Cape Coast, Manager Karim Zito’s  lads fell to a first defeat of the season, going down by a lone goal against Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

Our midfielder was adjudged the star man of the game; giving a clear indication that the lads did not go down easily without putting up a proper fight.

See how each player individually fared on the day.

Isaac Amoako – 3.5/5

He had a good game a usual. He made very good crucial saves to deny the Phobians especially a long range thunderbolt. There was nothing he could do about the goal.

Razak Cromwell – 3/5

He didn’t have a particularly good first half as he made fewer runs and poor crosses. He however buckled up in the second half to give an improved performance.

Maxwell Arthur – 3/5

He had a very good game. His crosses in the opponent’s half were of the most quality. A few wayward passes were his only negative impacts.

Massahudu Abdullai – 3/5

He was very solid in defence as always. He made a very crucial sliding tackle in the second half to deny Patrick Razak a clear chance on goal. A heavy tackle in the first half earned him a yellow card; his only blip in the game.

Issah Yakubu – 3/5

He showed great strength and quality at the back to stop the Hearts of Oak attacks from making any impact.

Patrick Arthur – 2.5/5

He had a day to forget in midfield as he failed to exert himself on the game. His passes in particular were consistently wayward

George Dwubeng – 2.5/5

He came in for Godfred Asante in the starting line-up but was unable to put his imprints on the midfield.

Kwadwo Asamoah – 4/5

He was the man of the math on the day and rightly so. His ball control and dribbles in the middle of the pitch was unmatched. His passing was also spot on as he delivered crucial passes to teammates in good positions. This was by far his best performance in the season.

Michael Sarpong – 3/5

He came into the line-up for Samuel Pimpong and played a very good game in general. He however could have shown more strength and drive to pressure the opposing defenders.

Zuberu Sharani – 3.5/5

This was another top performance from the young forward. He dribbled the opponent’s defenders with ease to create spaces and chances for his teammates.

Eric Gawu 3/5

He played his heart out as usual and was a constant threat to the opponent but he could have done more to assist a teammate when he was slid in by Kwadwo Asamoah.
