Dreams FC head coach Vladislav Viric has credited his players for their teamwork following their 2-0 win over Hearts of Oak.
The Phobians were hosted by the Still Believe lads at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu in the matchday 22 games on Sunday.
After a barren first half, second-half goals from Ali Huzaif and Sylvester Simba gave the home side the win on the day to send them to 4th on the league log on 34 points.
After the match, Viric said the victory was made possible because his players functioned as a team on the day.
“We got the result today because we played as a team. We knew before the game that we would struggle at certain moments since we were facing a very good Hearts of Oak side with good players.
“However, I also urged my players to also push the opposition, stay focused and take whatever chance that would come their way. I believed that whichever got the first goal would win the tie and that is what happened.”
Viric went on to give a positive appraisal of his defenders as the team kept a clean sheet against the Phobians. It was their second in three league matches after they beat Karela 1-0 in Week 20.
“As a coach, if your team keeps a clean sheet against Hearts of Oak, you should be very happy.
“Of course, Hearts had some chances but we were focused and we did well against their attackers.
“We also got some divine help on the day,” he added.
The win has sent Dreams FC to the 4th on the league with 34 points.
