We were motivated to beat Hearts of Oak after FA Cup defeat, says Ashgold coach Thomas Duah

Inter Ashantigold SC coach, Thomas Duah has revealed that they took inspiration from losing the MTN FA Cup final last season to hammer Hearts of Oak last weekend.

The Obuasi-based club lost on penalty shootout to Samuel Boadu’s side in the final of the FA Cup.

However, the Miners deepened the Phobians woes with a 2-0 win at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium in the matchday four games.

The reigning Ghana Premier League champions are without a win after four matches into the season. Hearts of Oak have drawn three and lost one, leaving them at the 15th on the league log with just three points.

At the post-match conference, Duah revealed losing the MTN FA Cup title to the Phobians last season inspired his outfit to defeat the rainbow boys.

“The players adhered to the instructions and I believe that helped us to pick this win,” he said.

Asked if their win is an act of revenge after losing the FA Cup title to Hearts last season, he said, “I can say that is a factor because we played very well in the final but unfortunately lost.

“The boys were determined to win after the cup defeat,” he added.
