Despite getting a draw at home, coach William was full of praise for his players and insisted that the tie is still evenly posed. Speaking at the post match conference the coach had this to say,
“It was a big test for my boys and I am happy with how they responded. They were confident all through; they dared to try and were not afraid to make mistakes. To play with such confidence when you are such a young team is encouraging. Most of these lads as you know are just coming from high school.”
On whether the result was disappointing,
“we tried. We were just unfortunate that we didn’t get a goal. I am not disappointed with my boys. They gave a good account of themselves.”
On where this results leaves the team ahead of the second leg,
“Being that we didn’t concede at home, I would say the second leg is anybody’s game. In fact it is advantage to us because for every goal we score, they need two. We could get a goal scoring draw and be threw or better even a win. It’s anyone’s game.
We will keep working hard putting in the work and hopefully we can get something positive in Kumasi.
