The goal was his second of the season in 7 games.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, coach Barjaktarevic said he was happy with the display his charges put up against the Cape Coast-based side.

The Ghana Premier League is quite tough. In every game, you'll have to prepare adequately and stay focus until the end of the game."
