Accra Hearts of Oak were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Great Olympics at the Ohene Gyan Stadium in match-week 28, a game that nearly caused them their top spot on the Ghana Premier League.
The ‘Phobians’ were the first team to break the deadlock after Emmanuel Nettey scored a wonderful eye-seeing thunderbolt which was later cancelled out by Maxwell Abbey Quaye’s equaliser.
The major talking point after the game has to do with an incident that occurred on the 22nd minute after Isaac Mensah’s long range rocket which looked like it has crossed the goal line but was denied by referee Rustum and his assistants.
Speaking in a post-match interview, head coach of Hearts of Oak Samuel Boadu stretched that, they created all the decent chances that came in the game but finding their second goal was their major problem at a point.
Also, Boadu added by saying he isn’t going to blame officiating for this draw but will want to see the introduction of ‘Goal-line Technology’ in the Ghanaian topflight.
“It’s a good game, Olympics did well. We got a lot of chances but we couldn’t score but the linesman disallowed Isaac Mensah’s goal and I think it was crossed the line so is a clear goal but I don’t want to talk about officiating.”
“If that goal was awarded the situation could have been different. I think the introduction of the goal-line technology can help”, he concluded.
Coach Samuel Boadu’s league topping side have been tied on the same points with arc rivals Asante Kotoko after today’s draw and will take on Medeama SC in an epic week 29 tie of the GPL season
