Hearts Coach Frank Nuttall Admits Winning Against AshGold Was Tough

Accra Hearts of Oak Coach Frank Nuttall admits facing a difficult test from Ashanti Gold in match-day 11 of the Ghana Premier League.

The Rainbow Club managed to beat AshGold to record their first away victory, thanks to a strike by Paul Acquah.

The win keeps Hearts title hopes alive as they move to fifth on the League table.

Nuttall says his side stuck to their task hence resulting in the all-important victory at the Lane Clay Stadium last Saturday.

“My general assessment of the game is that the players stuck to the task very well and although it was a difficult game for us coming after Wednesday’s game with a lot of travelling, we deserved to come away with the three points,” Nuttall told accraheartsofoaksc.com

“We were creating some chances and we were away from home and we had to be patient. We created some chances but to be fair to them, they also created some chances as well. So it was a pretty open game in the first half.

“It was a question of just trying to keep a clean sheet to the end of the game. Every game is a difficult game. Every game on the road is a difficult game because every team is trying to win against us as well so it is just good to get another three points. That is the main thing I look at. We got another three points and that’s the main thing.”

The Scottish trainer has recorded four victories since taking over as head Coach of Hearts of Oak.
