“Nothing came off for us. We have to put this game behind us as quickly as possible because RTU can’t lose 5-1 to any team again. We weren’t fresh physically or mentally after the game was rained off on Saturday … But we can’t make excuses. We have to keep our heads up. There is still plenty to go in in the Ghana Premier League and we must fight.
“Today was a tough defeat. We have to get on with it, keep face and focus on the next match. We are responsible for conceding four goals. I’m not going to make excuses for myself because that would look like I was trying to distance myself from any of my mistakes.
Real Tamale United welcome Ashgold to the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium on Sunday hoping to recover from the weekend defeat.
