False reflection: Kotoko’s defeat to Hearts of Lions unfair – David Duncan

Asante Kotoko suffered a massive defeat in Kpando at the hands of Hearts of Lions in the first week of the second round of the First Capital Plus Bank Premier League, but coach David Duncan says the 3-1 defeat on Sunday is ‘not a true reflection of the game’.

The defending champions hammered the Kpando-based Club 4-0 in the last game of the first round of the season, but could not start from where the left off on Sunday at Kpando.

Kotoko dominated proceedings, while Heart of Lions were doing the scoring, and Coach David Duncan who endured his heaviest defeat since joining Kotoko says the result is not the true reflection of the game.

‘There were moments in the game, in particular the first quarter of the game, we should have been at least two goals up,’ Duncan said in his post-match press.

‘There was, for instance a situation where I think we deserved a penalty but the referee refused to give it; Ahmed Toure also got a chance but due to his indiscretion, he was unable to go forward to shoot at goal,’ he said

‘So before (Heart of) Lions took the lead, I think we should have been at least two goals ahead. The scoreline is not the fair reflection of the game.’

Up next for the Porcupine Warriors will be New Edubiase, a side they have already met twice this season, drawing one and winning the other.
