Medeama goalie Ofori Antwi delighted with Eleven Wonders win despite despite fans’ concerns

 

Medeama goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi was left impressed with the performance of the team despite the narrow 1-0 win over Techiman Eleven Wonders on Sunday.

The Mauve and Yellows needed a 71st minute tap-in from Ivorian striker Kalibo Dedy Toussaint to separate the two sides at the Tarkwa NA Aboso park.

Medeama spurned several chances in the first half in particular, allowing the visitors to grow in confidence.

Midfielder Rashid Nortey rattled the cross-bar from 25-yards after a solo brilliance before Kalibo Dedy missed a sitter with the goalkeeper at his mercy.

Several fans were left unimpressed with the lack of killer instinct from the players but stand-in captain Eric Ofori Antwi insists they deserve the maximum points.

“Football is like that. What is important is to have picked the three points at stake,” he said at the post-match presser

“Sometimes you can play all the beautiful football and yet lose. I don’t think that what we want.

“The boys did extremely well and we have to be grateful we have the maximum points in the bag.

“Lets put this victory behind us and look ahead to the remaining matches. We travel to Aduana on Wednesday and we must put the focus on that.”

Coach Samuel Boadu was forced to make a last minute change after captain Joseph Tetteh-Zutah was knocked down by a bout of malaria, moments after being named in the starting X1.

Medeama travel to the Nana Agyemang Badu park in Dorma Ahenkro to battle Aduana Stars on Wednesday..

The team has moved to second on the table, just a point behind zone A leaders Asante Kotoko with a game in hand.
