Hearts board member positive ahead of Kotoko clash

Board Member of Hearts of Oak Frank Nelson insists Sunday’s defeat to Enugu Rangers is not indicative of things to come in next week’s league clash with Asante Kotoko.

The Phobians suffered an embarrassing 2-1 defeat before their fans in a game they were expected to win to cap off a month-long celebration to mark the club’s centenary anniversary.

The loss to the Nigerian club has sparked fears of perhaps what will happen when Hearts take on rivals Kotoko in the Premier League top liner this Sunday in Accra but Nelson is having none of that.

“Football is either you win, lose or draw and therefore I am not disappointed with the result against Enugu Rangers,” Nelson said.

“Let Kotoko take us for granted due to this result but I know definitely come Sunday we will be picking the three maximum points.

“If you know and understand football you know it is either you win, lose or draw and therefore if you lose then you should pick up the pieces and move on rather than let the result deter or disappoint you.”

Nelson is also adamant he is not particularly worried about his team’s low goal scoring rate despite creating numerous chances in games so far played this season.

“The most important thing is to create chances so I am sure it is just a matter of time before our strikers start converting the numerous goal scoring opportunities we create,” he added.

    Continue tickling yourself to laughter. You speak like you are a player. You wasted 100 years. On Sunday around this time you'll be licking your wounds and your coach will be looking for a new job. If you continue this way I can bet that in 50 years time there will be no Heaets of Oak - may be we shall be having Hearts of Straw tjen. It served you rigjt.

    “The most important thing is to create chances so I am sure it is just a matter of time before our strikers start converting the numerous goal scoring opportunities we create,” he added. Who are these strikers? Mahatma is not an out and out striker. He plays well when fielded as an auxilliary striker. He will disturb the opposing defenders and create chances for others to score. Uriah Asante is a schemer, so who are the strikers?
