Confidence could spark Ashantigold survival – CK Akonnor
AshantiGold coach Charles Akonnor is delighted with his side’s response to the second round of the season as the Miners look to battle relegation.
Ashantigold beat Dwarfs 3-0 in Obuasi as they went three games without defeat in the league and earn 4 points out of 6 in the Premier League.
Two goals from the spot by Richard Ocran and one other from Hans Kwofie were enough as Akonnor’s side secured two straight wins in Obuasi.
The team remains 15th on the league log but the former Black Stars captain is happy with their output on the day.
“Definitely we are very happy the way we played today. I think out confidence level has improved.”
“We were aware of the opponent’s strength. They are a well organized side. In the early minutes, because of the way they approached the game, they were well organized especially in defence.”
“We found it very difficult to penetrate so we were a bit careful and had to be patient and continue to play and go for the opportunities.”
“The opportunity came by way of penalty before getting another. A good work from the boys and I’m very happy.”
Ashanatigold will be hoping to avoid relegation at the end of the season. The coach had a great reception from the fans as the chanted his name at the end of the match.
Confidence seems to be returning to Obuasi and that could be the catalyst for survival for the Miners.
