Penalties are like a lottery - Steve Polack on Kotoko CAF game

Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack is not bothered with his side's failure to convert three penalties in their game with CARA Brazaville.

Kotoko before Yakubu Mohammed's last minute goal from the spot had missed three spot kicks in the game played at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The first player to miss was striker Saddick Adams, captain Amos Frimpong missed the second with Baba Mahama also missing the third penalty.

It was drama at the Baba Yara Stadium but coach Pollack thinks they were just unlucky.

"Penalties are like a lottery, the goalkeeper has nothing to lose, it is the player who has a lot to lose should you miss it," he said after the game

"And if you look at the Penalties we took, the first one from Saddick was well taken but missed, Baba as well and it was saved.

Kotoko will travel away to Congo Brazaville in a fortnight for the second leg clash.
