Kosta Papic

Hearts of Oak coach Kosta Papic believes they are making progress after extending their unbeaten run to four games with a great win against Eleven Wonders on Sunday.

The Phobians won the Ghana Premier League encounter 2-0 thanks to goals from Umar Manaf and Victor Aidoo.

Abdul Manaf got his foot unto an inch-perfect cross and found the bottom corner to break the deadlock in the 11th minute.

Victor Aidoo doubled the lead with a vicious strike from long range on 48 minutes, with Hearts holding on for their third straight win at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Following the win, Hearts are fourth on the table, two points adrift of leaders Karela United.

“For my opinion, we are progressing. Not creating so many chances like I am expecting but we are progressing on the playing style,” Kosta Papic said after the game.

“When our injured players come back, we will have strong competition and that will make the team even much stronger and we will perform better,” he added.

“At least three points for us is very important till we catch those who are up. It’s very important for us at this crucial moment and I am very happy that we got it.”

Hearts have improved greatly since Papic’s arrival in December. They were battling relegation before his appointment but are now title contenders.
