ASHANTIGOLD’S quest for a first Premier League title in early two decades was boosted by a massive home victory over Medeama FC at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi.
Ashantigold came from a goal down to beat Medeama 2-1 in the tight encounter.
The visitors stunned their hosts with an early lead through Kwesi Bonsu in the seventh minute but Ashantigold hit back in the 32nd minute through Didier Kore.
Medeama held on to the draw to make things difficult for the league leaders, but with 10 minutes left on the clock, Ashantigold were awarded a penalty and Kore maintained his composure to fire Ashantigold into the lead, which also turned out to be the match winner.
Ashantigold have now extended their lead on the table to three points with three games left.
At Tema, Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Inter Allies settled for a goalless drawn game in the week 27 of the First Capital Plus Premier League yesterday at the Tema Sports Stadium.
The two sides knew what was stake and were initially cautious, but it was Inter Allies who pressed for goals as Kotoko midfield broke down, forcing them to adopt defensive postures.
With Allies efforts always folding up in front of Kotoko goal area coupled with lame mid-field of the reds, it was no surprise that the referee’s final whistle left the game barren.
