Hearts of Oak coach Edward Nii Odoom believes his side were let down by a breakdown in communication in Sunday's derby loss to arch-rivals Asante Kotoko in the Ghana Premier League.

The Phobians were left disappointed in the matchday six fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium as Naby Laye Keita converted a stoppage-time penalty to ensure a 2-1 away triumph for the Porcupine Warriors.

Justice Blay put the visitors in the lead in the 11th minute before Joseph Esso restored parity with a header after the break.

"Nothing went wrong for us, my boys played very well," Odoom said at the post-match press conference.

"You could see how we were dictating the pace of the game.

"Lack of communication went a bit wrong for us. But it was a good performance.

"If I watch what the team is doing, from where we are coming from, I think it’s perfect."

The result has taken Kotoko to fourth on the league table as Hearts occupy 12th position.

The two teams are the biggest clubs in Ghana, boasting a combined 42 league titles between them.

Hearts contributed 19 of the titles.
