The newly-appointed coach is urging his players to sustain such level of determination throughout the league season
Duncan was pleased with the final score line and believes with time his team will get to where he aspires it to be.
“Even though we were on the back-foot for some part of the game, I say credit to my boys. We were very organized and focused,” Duncan said in a post-match interview.
“We had enough men behind the ball but Kotoko did better.”
The newly-appointed coach believes the Phobians can go far in the Ghana Premier League if they continue to approach every game with such determination.
He said: “We didn't threaten Kotoko that much. The telepathy wasn't there, they [Hearts team] haven't played together for a long time but we showed determination.”
Duncan's second day in office will see him meeting Liberty Professionals in an Accra derby on Sunday.
