Medeama coach David Duncan refused to blame his players despite their painful 1-0 defeat at Berekum Chelsea on Monday.

The Mauve and Yellows lost a last gasp concentration to suffer their first defeat of the Ghana Premier League campaign.

A high octane game saw Prince Anane cutting through the defence to unleash the match-winner in the right top corner.

Coach Duncan’s 3-4-3 formation worked to a near perfect until Anane stepped up to rattle home the match winner at the Nana Agyemang Badu I Park.

Watchers have blamed the players for momentary loss of concentration but the gaffer is refusing to blame his troops.

“My boys did extremely well and I won’t blame them. It was a high octane game but these things happen sometimes. We are disappointed with the results but we live to fight another day,” Duncan told reporters

“We should have closed down the goal scorer but we failed in that regard. These things happen sometimes. We pick the pieces and prepare for the next match.

“Both teams gave a good account of themselves and I am positive that we can turn things around.”

Medeama will next host Aduana Stars at the Akoon Community Park on Sunday.
