Hearts of Oak Head Coach Kim Grant has hit out at Liberty Professionals for their approach in Wednesday’s clash between the two which ended goalless.
Liberty played the entire second half with a man down after defender Michael Enu was sent off on the stroke of half time for bringing down Joseph Esso, who was through on goal.
In a game where Hearts squandered numerous goal-scoring opportunities, including a penalty miss from Esso, Liberty ultimately resorted to delay tactics to distort the rhythm of Hearts, much to the frustration of the Hearts faithful.
“In the end I’m a little ashamed of how they were rolling around in the second half just to delay their delay tactics, but we have to be more clinical and ruthless in front of goal,” he said.
“I’m disappointed. It is like they have won a cup final, while we feel like we have lost the game.
“It was obvious they came here to defend, and it shows teams now know what we’re about, so they come here and simply try to get a point,” he added.
Hearts will travel to Cape Coast next to take on Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday.
