Head Coach of Accra Great Olympics, Yaw Preko says he was delighted with his team’s win over Hearts of Oak in the Ga Mantse Derby played on Saturday at the Accra Sports stadium on Match Day 11 of the Ghana Premier League.
Olympics won the game by 2-0 via goals from Gladson Awako and Samuel Ashie-Quaye to secure bragging rights in the highly entertaining game.
Speaking after the game, Preko said he was impressed with the performance his players put up during the encounter.
”I am proud of the boys. You saw it, they gave everything. We planned for this game and everything that we put in place came to light,” Preko said.
”The boys came to the party, we decided to hit them early and it worked so in the second half all we needed to do was to be compact and defend the two goals and our plan worked for us.”
This is the Dade Boys’ first win over Accra Hearts of Oak since 2004.
The result now leaves the Great Olympics in fourth place with 18 points after 11 games while Hearts of Oak drop to eighth place on the log with 16 points.
