Wa All Stars kept their league title ambitions intact with a crucial 1-0 win over relegation-trapped New Edubiase United in the Ghana Premier League yesterday.
Emmanuel Ocran headed home a Samuel Baako cross in the first-half to snatch the three maximum points.
Nasir Lamine broke the heart of the home side when he squandered a penalty in the game.
Edubiase were inspired by their surprise win at Techiman City in midweek while Wa All Stars knew they had to bag the maximum points if they are to maintain their challenge for the league title.
Edubiase exerted early pressure on the Northerners but Bismark Idan missed two great chances.
All Stars tilted the game in their favour when Emmanuel Ocran raced through the back to connect home a Samuel Baako delicious cross from the right. Edubiase could have dealt with the rebound but Ocran ghosted in to fire home for the visitors.
