GPL: King Faisal remain top, Ashgold beat WAFA in Sogakope

King Faisal are now two points clear at the top of the Ghana Premier League following victory against Elmina Sharks on Sunday.

Ibrahim Osman scored the decisive goal to secure a 1-0 win at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday as King Faisal continued their impressive run this season, with owner Alhaji Grusah insisting they have what it takes to be crowned champions.

In Sogakope, AshantiGold bounced to winning ways and deepened the woes of WAFA. Kwadwo Seth Osei’s first-half strike secured a 1-0 win as the Miners ended a run of two games without a victory and climb up to fifth on the table.

Meanwhile, the defeat has left WAFA, who finished third last season, second from bottom with just five points.

Aduana Stars are the most in-form team at the moment. On Saturday, they beat Great Olympics 1-0 for a fourth consecutive win to move up to second.

The Dormaa lads have recovered from a slow start. They are now a confident team, producing splendid performances and achieving great results. No team has won more points than Aduana (13) since matchday 3.

While Aduana are rising, regional rivals Berekum Chelsea continue to struggle. They dropped points again as they played out a goalless draw with Legon Cities in Accra – a result that leaves the former champions in the relegation zone.

Karela United produced by far their best performance this season to demolish Accra Lions 3-0 in Ayinase. In a dominant display, Umar Bashiru penalty and a fine finish by George Amonoo gave Karela a comfortable first-half lead.

Substitute Ebenezer Ocran added the third as the visitors began life without coach Rainer Kraft on a disappointing note.
