Hearts of Oak captain Thomas Abbey admits they were beaten by a well determined Tema Youth side in week seven of the Ghana Premier League at the Tema Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
The Phobians indifferent form in this season’s Ghana Premier League continues after they were defeated 2-1 by Tema Youth.
“Tema Youth are a very good side and they were well determined to win in front of their supporters. We congratulate them for the great display,” Abbey told reporters.
“This game is over, we have a big game on Sunday, so we’re going back to strategize for that.”
A 3rd minute strike by Joseph Paintsil set the tone for the Harbour City boys before Hearts skipper Thomas Abbey equalized just after the recess, but a late winner by Ibrahim Yusif succumbed the Phobians to their third defeat of the season.
Hearts will host sworn rivals Asante Kotoko on Match Day eight at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
