Aduana Stars’ aspirations of clinching the Ghana Premier League title were dealt a severe blow on Saturday as they suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Dreams FC in Dormaa.
With Medeama securing a comeback victory over King Faisal the previous day, opening up a four-point lead, Aduana knew that nothing less than a win would keep them in the title race. However, they encountered difficulties in breaking down a determined Dreams side.
Dreams FC claimed a significant triumph with a solitary goal from forward Ali Huzaf in the 54th minute. The goal proved to be the difference-maker, as Dreams held on to secure a crucial three points, extending their lead over the relegation zone to five points with just two matches remaining.
This defeat means that Aduana Stars, who had been leading the league for a significant portion of the season, will not be crowned champions for the third time, provided Medeama emerge victorious in their upcoming fixture against Samartex.

Aduana will undoubtedly be deeply disappointed with this turn of events, given their impressive performance throughout the campaign.
In another match on Saturday, Tamale City received a boost in their fight against relegation as Mohammed Yahaya scored the decisive goal, leading his team to a slender victory over Samartex at home. With this win, Tamale City now sit three points clear of the drop zone, bolstering their chances of retaining their top-flight status.
