Berekum Chelsea pip Faisal
The woes of relegation-threatened Kumasi King Faisal deepened yesterday at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex at Abrankese in the Bosomtwe District when they lost 0-1 to visiting Berekum Chelsea in their 18th week betPawa Premier League encounter.
Having changed the venue of their league matches from the Kumasi Stadium, the expectations were that Faisal would use Chelsea as the sacrificial lamb to bounce into winning ways.
Faisal, however, let their fans down as they succumbed to Chelsea with a lone goal defeat; thus, entangling them in the relegation net with 20 points from 18 matches.
It was Mezack Afriyie, who cost damage to Faisal in the seventh minute when his shot found the target to break the deadlock.
Conscious of their current standing on the league stable and determined to move up, King Faisal came into the game geared with all hope to come at par and secure all three points to move up on the league table.
Tried as they did, they were unable to find the net despite the numerous chances created.
After recess, it became a ding-dong affair between the two teams with defenders of each side protecting their goal lines.
