Great Olympics coach Yaw Preko has expressed disappointment in his side’s 1-1 draw against Kotoko on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium, saying it feels like Great Olympics gained absolutely nothing from the game.
Abdul Bashiru opened the scoring for the Accra-based side on the 47th minute mark as Kotoko toiled to break the defence of their opponents.
However, Andrews Appau equalized in the very final minutes to deny Olympics the maximum points. Despite the fact that Kotoko is yet to lose at home this season, Yaw Preko believes his team deserved more than a draw at the Baba Yara Stadium.
“We squandered opportunities. I keep saying that when you play against a team like Kotoko and Hearts of Oak. When you have to kill them you kill them. It happened to us when we played Hearts of Oak. The last set piece of the game, Hearts of Oak equalized. Same thing. We created more than them. I said it against Hearts of Oak. It feels like a defeat.
“The game plan really worked. We controlled the game. They were not getting any chances. We were hitting them on the counter. When we had to do it medium, we did it medium. When we had to do it low, we did it low. Then we hit them on the counter. But this job is unbelievable because Kotoko doesn’t deserve a point,” He told reporters after the game.
Olympics have recently been struggling to win points with just a win in their last six matches. Prior to their clash against Kotoko, they had lost three successive times against Berekum Chelsea, Aduana and Tamale. They will go against Bibiani Gold Stars on January 12 in their next match.
