Match Day 7 of the Ghana Premier League between Ashantigold and Ebusua Dwarfs at the Len Clay Stadium wasn’t just a game of points, but a game with a lot at stake, judging from the historical precedence in terms of clashes between the teams.
Coach Kassim Gokyildiz handed starting roles to Samed Ibrahim, Benedict Wobenu, and Appiah Maccarthy for the first time this season.
Both teams had very few goal scoring opportunities during the first 45 minutes of the game, with the away side dominating in terms of counter breaks.
Ashantigold SC introduced Emmanuel Osei Baffour and Benjamin Eshun for Amos Addai and Emmanuel Owusu respectively.
Samed Ibrahim’s chest connection from close range at the 75th minute resulted in the only goal of the game, as Ashantigold SC returns to winning ways after two straight defeats.
The Miners will be on the road this week, as they face Accra Hearts of Oak on Thursday, 6th February 2020.
