Assistant coach of Hearts of Oak, Henry Wellington has bemoaned the club’s lack of potency up front and suggests the club needs to go into the market for two new strikers to beef the current squad.

Hearts of Oak were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Aduana Stars in the final of the just ended G6 invitational tournament played at the Baba Yara sports stadium in Kumasi on Sunday. The club spurned a lot of chances to extend their lead after winger Patrick Razak had fired them in front with a goal mid-way through the first half. And Aduana Stars capitalised on Hearts’ profligacy by equalising through striker Nathaniel Asamoah.

The game then went into penalties where the ”Oyga” lads tasted victory in the shoot-out. Wellington, who watched his side miss a host of chances, has expressed worry about his side’s wastefulness and concedes Hearts need two more strikers to augment the current squad.

"We have to sign some two new strikers that I have spotted. I don't want the new coach to face this striking problem," Wellington said in an interview with Kumasi-based Metro FM.

"So there are two good strikers that I have listed down that we must try to sign. Look at the final game we used just one striker (Musah Ibrahim) because Kwame Kizito was injured and bright Lukeman had a knock. "

The Phobians scored three goals in four matches as they reached the final of the G6 tournament and would be looking forward to addressing their striking problems before the 2016/17 season starts.
