Former Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder, Kofi Abanga says the victory over Asante last weekend brings back the spirit of the Phobians.
The Accra giants delivered a performance of intensity and spirit to beat fierce rival Asante Kotoko as they finally claim its first points in the second round of the season.
The pressure was on Hearts of Oak before the game. The were defeated by Great Olympics and had taken no points from their last two games.
But the second half goal from Konadu Yiadom earned the FA Cup holders a victory at the Accra Sports Stadium to retain the President’s Cup and also bag three points for the BetPawa Premier League.
Kofi Abanga, the former Phobian was delighted with the team’s performance. He believes the Rainbows have rediscovered their fighting spirit after beating the Porcupine Warriors.
“Our spirit will rise soon. Let us pick two straight wins and you will see the spirit but I can tell you that the spirit is even back after beating Kotoko. The boys always want to see the colours, see the massive support and the jama session from Chapter ‘O’. The spirit is now back,” Abanga boldly stated in an interview with Ghanasportspage.com.
After beating Kotoko in Accra last Sunday, Hearts of Oak will make the trip to Bibiani to face the Golden Boys at the Dun’s Park on Saturday.
It’s a game that will offer the Rainbows a big chance to show they’re capable of mounting a title challenge in the second half of the season; a win for Hearts would see them move back to the top four.
