Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu insists the Phobians lost to Dreams FC in the Ghana Premier League matchday 22 due to numerical advantage.
The Ghanaian giants were reduced to ten men in the second half after defender Nuru Sulley was sent off.
Dreams took advantage of the sending off and immediately punished Hearts with Ali Huzaif pouncing on the resulting freekick.
"We have to take it like that, there are three things in football, it's either you win, lose or draw," he said in the post-match interview.
"We are going back home to correct the mistake we made in conceding these goals," he added.
"We were playing well but unfortunately we had a red card and it also affected us in our play. Our transition and everything change.
Second-half substitute Ibrahim Simba picked up a loose ball from the close to the corner flag on the right, raced with it, and then delivered a low one which beat goalkeeper Mensah at the near post.
"The last goal was very bad but I am not disappointed. They did well, play to satisfaction but missed chances, unfortunately," Boadu concluded.
