Asante Kotoko deputy coach, Orlando Wellington has disclosed why the Porcupine Warriors were able to pick the maximum points from Samreboi without some key players of the team.
The Ghanaian champions beat FC Samartex 2-1 on matchday 22 to snatch their first away win in 2023.
Before Saturday’s game, Kotoko had won only one game in nine consecutive games away from home and that came on matchday 6 of the competition after beating Medeama SC 1- 0 in Tarkwa.
They went into the game against Annor Walker’s side without Danlad Ibrahim, Augustine Agyapong, Rashid Nortey, Steven Mukwala and other key players.
Despite the absence of these key players, the reigning Ghanaian champions were able to ease back to winning ways at a very difficult ground and it was a performance that rightly pleased assistant coach Orlando Wellington.
He stated that they had an enough time to prepare and it will be a turning point for the team if they maintain their style of play.
“It will be a turning point if they still play according to instructions and if they do tactically discipline I think it will be a turning point for the team.
“They deserve it because we had at least enough time to prepare the team and what I saw from the training ground gave me the confidence that we are going to come out with either win or draw,” he said in an interview with StarTimes.
