Akakpo Patron Impressed With Players Performance Despite Losing To Aduana Stars

Assistant coach of Asante Kotoko, Akakpo Patron has drawn positives from their performance despite losing to Aduana Stars in the 2018 Ghana FA Super Cup on Sunday.

The Ghana Premier League champions defeated the Porcupine Warriors by 1:0 at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi on Sunday.

Bright Agyei scored the only goal of the game in 64th minute and was enough to win the trophy for the Ogya Lads for the first time in their history.

“The performance was good. I think overall, we started the game very well. As we planned, the boys started it very well,” he told the media.

“In the first 25 minutes, we were on top of our game. Later, they took over for about 10 minutes but we finished it very well in the final minutes.

”The second half was also balanced for both sides. What I will say is the performance was okay.”

After the loss, the former WAFA assistant coach disclosed that they have identified some lapses which they must work on before they kick off their CAF Confederations Cup campaign.

“It is all about our preparations towards the CAF Confederations Cup even though there are some lapses we have seen that we have to work on to improve certain areas in the game.”

The FA Cup champions will host Congolese giants CARA Brazzaville in the first leg of the 2018 CAF Confederations Cup preliminary stage in a fortnight.
