The Phobians coach feels let down after his side failed to complete a double over their city rivals on Sunday

Hearts of Oak manager Frank Elliott Nuttall feels disappointed following his side's 1-1 stalemate with city rivals Liberty Professionals on matchday 16 of the Ghana Premier League played at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Phobians defeated Liberty 3-0 in the first leg but needed a goal from the spot to snatch a point on Sunday.

However, Hearts could have won the game but for Samuel Yeboah' missed chances including a sitter in the second-half.

"I think it was a typical derby game. Yet again, another tough game for Hearts of Oak and I’m surprised to see how Liberty performed,” Nuttall said.

“They are near the buttom of the table and they will push away from that position with this kind of performances against the other clubs in the subsequent matches in the league.

“We had enough chances to win the game in both halves and they had some chance but we had more chances and should have utilised them. We will see what we will do about that situation,” he added.

Hearts sit third on the log with 27 points, six points behind leaders Aduana Stars and will face second-placed Wafa on matchday 17 top of the table clash in Sogakope.
