Berekum Chelsea coach Hans van der Pluym believes that his team’s performance in the 1-1 away draw against Wa All Stars must not dampen their hopes of a second Glo Premier League title.
The Upper West regional capital, Wa, is always a difficult place to win at and Hans van der Pluym tells Citi Sports that the combination of searing heat and fast, long passing football makes All Stars a formidable opponent for anyone for who travels up north.
“Normally if you play draw with Wa All Stars it’s not bad but in our situation you have to look at the circumstances are also related.
It is very hot. Their style of playing does not make it easy for the opponent who wants to play a passing game. They play the long ball very fast.”
Chelsea were thus unable to break the six game undefeated run of Wa All Stars at the weekend.
Hans was however confident that the three-point gap between Chelsea and Medeama can be plugged in due course.
“I think that the draw has not demoralized us. We are not happy with it, that I can tell you, but I’m still sure that we are still in the race”
Despite sounding so positive, Hans van der Pluym would know that the Blues’ next five games includes tough games with Dwarfs, Medeama, Tema Youth, Hearts of Oak and Edubiase.
