Â Goalkeeper Tetteh Luggard says he feels rewarded by coach David Duncan faith in him, and is eager to further underline his claim for the No.1 spot at Hearts
The 22-year-old was handed his opportunity to shine against arch-rivals Asante Kotoko and never disappointed with an incredible performance to emerge match-of-the match during Sundayâ€™s Super Clash at the Baba Yara stadium.
The former Sporting Mirren shot-stopper was surprisinglyÂ picked ahead of favourite Philemon McCarthy and experienced Sammy Adjei.
After keeping a clean sheet against the Porcupine Warriors and earning rave reviews in the local media, Luggard is confident he can stake a claim for the permanent role.
â€œIâ€™m very happy that many people were happy with my performance and I will Â continue to workd hard to Â improve,â€ Luggard told Peace Power Sports
â€œIt is the dream of every goalkeeper to play actively and so thatâ€™s what I will hope to achieve.
â€œI want to play abroad and represent our national team if Iâ€™m given the opportunity. I want to remain top and get regular playing time
â€œBefore the game I pulled a muscle. I was feeling pains in my thigh and thatâ€™s why I went down on many occasions.
â€œIt wasnâ€™t meant to play delay tactics.
Luggard could be in line to man the post for Hearts when they host Liberty Professionals on Sunday November 25.
