Ghana's No. 1

Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu pleased with victory over Dreams FC

Published on: 02 May 2022

Hearts of Oak head coach Samuel Boadu was pleased with his side's performance against Dreams FC, which saw them win 3-1 and move up to third place in the Ghana Premier League.

Boadu had not beaten Dreams since his appointment as Hearts coach, with a defeat and a draw, but his charges were absolutely fantastic on Sunday to claim victory.

The victory moves Hearts of Oak into third place, but they are still 12 points behind first-placed Kotoko.

After only four minutes, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh scored the first goal for the rainbow boys. The striker's eighth league goal of the season elevates him to the club's leading scorer.

They showed great strength by doubling their lead in the 12th minute through Seidu Suraj.

Dreams forward Agyenim Mensah scored from the penalty spot in the 45th minute to cut the lead before halftime.

After the break, the Still Believe lads were put under pressure, and Abdul Jalilu put the ball in his own net.

Speaking after the game, Boadu said, "It was a very nice game. Both teams played well. As you know Dreams are tactically good. Two matches with six goals, that's what we expected," coach Boadu said.

"That has been our hallmark but it's quite unfortunate people didn't see our goal scoring but with their advice, we have really worked on it."

The two teams will meet again in the MTN FA Cup semi-finals later this month.
