Hearts of Oak coach, Kim Grant, says his team dominated and played better against rivals Asante Kotoko but lost the semi-final game in the NS Special Competition due to luck.

“I am very disappointed we lost but I know penalties is anybody’s game and is sometimes based on luck. After conceding very early in the game we dominated, I congratulate C. K. Akunnor [Kotoko coach] for his side’s victory over us,” he told Happy FM.

“The atmosphere in the stadium was enormous and fantastic and I must congratulate the supporters for coming out to fill the Stadium.The fans have been instrumental and very positive in all our home games and has made the players comfortable playing at the Accra Sports Stadium.
“It is time for us to go back to the drawing board and reflect on the game moving forward. We have done well in the competition and it is time for us to restructure for the future,” Grant added.
“All the players have contributed to the team and were very superb and gave out their 100%,” he stated.
