Emmanuel Gyamfi is determined to kick on after Asante Kotoko’s improved display so nearly brought a surprise victory against Medeama in the Ghana premier league matchweek four outstanding fixture.
Last week was an uncomfortable period for all connected to the Porcupines, with the CAF Champions League loss at home to Al Hilal leading focus to increase on players, coach Johnson Smith and the entire background structure.
Yet Kotoko rallied impressively and came out fighting against Medeama at the Akoon Park, with Kwame Opoku putting the visitors ahead on an afternoon when they would fall just short.
Substitute Abass Mohammed secured a late 1-1 draw for Samuel Boadu’s men from the spot and in Gyamfi’s opinion, Medeama should have tasted defeat on Sunday.
“We were disappointed to come away with only a point after taking the lead,” Gyamfi said in a post-match press conference.
“What disappointed me the most was that there was an earlier handball before the ball touched our player [Habib Mohammed], but the referee ignored theirs and gave a penalty for ours”
“The positive is that we possessed and passed the ball very well, and we will train harder to improve in those areas and also score more”
