The Miners' four games winning streak was surprisingly halted by the debutants at home and their manager is blaming his players

Ashanti Gold coach Charles Kwabena Akunnor says mistakes by his charges led to their 2-1 defeat to Elmina Sharks in Ghana Premier League matchday 23 encounter at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Eric Owusu and Benjamin Tweneboah put the visitors in front before a consolation was fetched by Prince Owusu for the hosts, widening the race to avoid relegation.

“I am a little bit disappointed by the way we played not because we lost but the way and manner my players played the game. We were slow and tactically we were not disciplined and a lot of things went wrong for us,” Akunnor told StarTimes.

“Defensively, we didn’t do well at all and in the middle we were weak. We showed a lot of weaknesses but we have to accept that Elmina Sharks players took us by surprise.

“They were very disciplined. They were very defensive and the only way we could attack them was to go through the wings and I kept saying it was difficult.”

He added: “Congratulations to them because we were a bit poor. We have to go back to the drawing board and plan for the best in the remaining fixtures.”

Ashanti Gold, who have one game at hand against Wafa, have dropped two places to 13th, one place above the drop zone with seven matches to end the season.
