Hearts happy with Nuttall

Accra Hearts of Oak board member, Frank Nwokolo Nelson has praised the influence of the club's Scottish trainer, Frank Nuttall has had on the team since he took reigns earlier this season.

The former Gor Mahia trainer's appointment was announced days to the commencement of the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League (GHPL) season. Hearts have enjoyed a patchy start after eight games picking 12 points from a possible 24.

But Nelson believes the Scots short stint with the club is showing signs of promise and has called on supporters to not cease offering their support.

"Out of seven matches he has won three, two defeats and draws which isn't a bad start to a debut season, he told Class FM Sports.

"He [Nuttall] is a man we [as management] can work with but his success will also depend on how we [management, technical department and supporters] corporate with him and see what he has up his sleeves to help grow the club," he added.

Hearts narrowly defeated arch rivals, Kumasi Asante Kotoko in match week 8 and will seek to record their first back-to-back win of the new season when league football returns after the international break.
