Thomas Abbey eyes more goals for Hearts

Hearts of Oak winger Thomas Abbey says he’s motivated to score more goals for the club having won the club’s Goal-of-the-Month for February.

The hardworking midfielder beat Patrick Razak and Alexandre Kouami to the award. And Abbey says it is going to motivate him to score more goals for the club.

“I am happy because this is my first time of getting such an award from Hearts,” Hearts’ general captain told

“I thank the fans for the appreciation [of my goal] because it will motivate me to score more for the club and for myself.

“This season I am targeting a number of goals because in preseason I scored wonderful goals so I am expecting and hoping to translate it in the league.”

Abbey was unlucky not to get on the score-sheet in the 2-0 away defeat to Aduana Stars having seen his snapshot bounce off two opposite posts in Dormaa last Sunday. But he insists the miss will spur him to get on target against Olympics this weekend.

“After the ball [hit the posts], I just said ‘wow to myself’,” Abbey revealed. “I could not score against Aduana but I want to work hard and see if God willing I will be able to give the three points to the fans and score a wonderful goal [against Olympics on Sunday].”
