Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan admits his side lost to a better team on Sunday.
The Phobians suffered their second successive loss when they were downed 2-0 at Heart of Lions.
Hearts have been coasting steadily since the arrival of Duncan who replaced CK Akunnor who was dismissed after a string of poor results.
But the former African champions appear to have relapsed into their poor form with now two back-to-back defeats.
But coach Duncan accepts his side’s performance on Sunday was not good enough for a win.
“In the first place this is football and Heart of Lions are a good side,” he said.
“So we take the result in good faith and we’ll keep working hard.”
Hearts are currently 12th in the Ghanaian top flight haven garnered just 12 points after eleven games.
