Head coach of Hearts of Oak Kim Grant has indicated that the kickoff time in the ongoing Special Competition should be reviewed.

The Phobians were pipped 1-0 by Elmina Sharks on matchday two of the competition at the Nduom Stadium.

But according to the Accra-based outfit’s trainer, the kickoff time did not help the pace of the game as both sides struggled to cope with the scorching weather.

''…the heat; it was very hot today and I think it slowed the tempo. We might have to appeal to the GFA to look at the starting (kickoff) time because the heat is a lot,'' Grant told GTV.

''We have to think about the welfare of the players. There’s a lot of dehydration; everybody is losing water very fast. ''Not just us; both teams were lethargic and of course you’re playing two games in three or four days so it’s a lot.''
