Head Coach of Nsoatreman FC Maxwell Konadu says but for his defenders, the club would not have made it past Legon Cities FC in the MTN FA Cup.

The Bono Region side beat their counterparts from the Greater Accra Region 2-1 in the semi-finals on Saturday, May 11 to secure a place in the final of the competition.

They are scheduled to play Bofoakwa Tano FC, who beat champions Dreams FC, in the final for the ticket to next season’s CAF Confederation Cup.

Speaking on Onua FM on Monday, May 13, he said his players’ mentality to “achieve something for ourselves” played a big role to push them to scale past the Legon Cities threat.

“We [also] had a good pre-season and that made everything for us,” he indicated.

He conceded that there was nothing extraordinary about them, just that “our defenders did so well to manage the situation”.

After Foster Apertorgbor and Mohammed Abdul Rahaman got the first-half goals at the WAFA Park in Sogakope, Legon Cities pushed hard to get back into the game.

Kweku Williams Adjei halved the deficit in the 60th minute but the Nsoatreman defence was too difficult to breach, ending the score 2-1.

The Black Meteors coach is happy with the side’s performance, saying their target to win the competition is still on course.

He said management had tasked them to stay in the Ghana Premier League this season after a torrid first season last year and possibly win the MTN FA Cup.

So far, their season, he says, has been good and a target will be set next season.
