The boss admits ‘lack of concentration’ cost Medeama despite dominant performance against Dreams FC

Medeama coach Samuel Boadu acknowledged that sloppy mistakes at the back cost his team against Dreams on match day 2 of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Two costly mistakes from defender Ibrahim Yaro condemned the side to their first defeat of the season.

The centre-back allowed striker Joseph Esso to get the better of him to open the scoring in the first half before substitute Kwadwo Asamoah got the much deserved equalizer in the second half.

However, when it appeared the match was destined to end in a draw, Ibrahim Yaro was adjudged to have fouled Joseph Esso again for a resultant penalty on the stroke of full time.

Issah Ibrahim elected himself for the kick and scored the match winner.

And Medeama coach Samuel Boadu admits his charges lost focus in the dying embers of the game.

“Once we’ve lost the game, I would agree, lack of concentration affected us along the line. In fact lack of concentration can cost a team a whole lot and so we’re going to work on it after the defeat.

“We have now started the season so I think it will take time for my boys to gel up to their normal play.”
