Duncan hails Dwarfs



Massive respect is all David Duncan has for Dwarfs despite the Cape Coast side's inability to beat the Phobians on Wednesday.

Hearts needed a goal from the prolific Mahatma Otoo, who finished well after a one-two with Moro Abubakar past Foli Adade in the 26th minute of the first half.

And the head coach of has talked up the good play of Ebusua even though Hearts could have killed the game much earlier.

"Kudos to Dwarfs for their good play. They were a very decent side and they brought out the best in us.

"They gave us some edgy moments in the initial stages of the game but ultimately, we were strong and once again, our character thrived."

On his part, Duncan revealed that he had to prevail upon his players to stop over-elaborating in the game played at the Accra Stadium.

"I thought that initially, the boys were hanging on the ball for too long. We were to play a lot more of the give-and-go. It is difficult in those circumstances to recover and pick your opponent. They were not getting that in the early parts of the game but when I instructed them and they tried the move, it resulted in the goal."

Hearts are now seventh with 43 points, two points off fourth placed Aduana Stars. With two games left to complete the league season, the Phobians have an air of confidence in being in the top four.

They play New Edubaise away and Tema Youth at home.
