Hearts of Oak coach Nuttall slams Elmina Sharks for time wasting

Hearts of Oak coach Frank Nuttall has criticized Elmina Sharks for their time wasting tactics during Sunday's 1-1 draw at the Accra Sports Stadium. 

Sharks took the lead through Joseph Mensah but Winful Cobbinah equalized with a perfect free-kick.

''We worked very hard throughout the game and we were unfortunate not to come away with the three points. It is the difficult when the opposition don’t come and play football,'' Nuttall said in a post match interview.

''I’ve seen this before but this attitude was extreme. If the Ghana Premier League is going to get better, they need more teams like Hearts who are ready to play and don’t waste time.

''So we came to play football and we need both teams to do that and there is responsibility to the Ghana’s football that the teams play in the right spirit.''

    Hearts didn't waste time against Kotoko, it was Kotoko's juju that was at play. don't forget they ( Kotoko) came to the pitch with their back and conceded a penalty via the same (back)
