ghana premier league scores roundup

  • The 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season will kick –off on Saturday and Sunday 20th and 21st February, 2016 at match venues across the country.

  •  Match Day 2 of the Ghana Premier League kicked off this past Friday at the Len Clay stadium with New Edubiase FC righting their PL season with a lone goal victory over visiting PL returnee side Ebusua Dwarfs who have now gone 0 and 2 in their first 2 PL games of the campaign.

  • With the much anticipated reverse ‘Super Clash’ between the Phobians and the Porcupine Warriors coming up this weekend, PL title hopefuls – Accra Hearts of Oak – consolidated their position at the summit with a hard fought lone goal win over visiting B. Chelsea in midweek action to go 5points clear of rivals Asante Kotoko, and dethroned PL leaders - Wa All Stars – maintained their home invincibility with a solid 2-0 win over the visiting Techiman City unit to remain two points adrift of the summit.

  • Match Day 6 of the Ghana Premier League will come off as scheduled this weekend following a short break for the MTN FA Cup Round of 64 and some international action that saw the Black Stars take on the Os Mambas of Mozambique with current table toppers - undefeated Accra Hearts of Oak - having the perfect opportunity at home on Sunday to put some separation between themselves and the rest of the field as they welcome a very enterprising Wa All Stars side in a fiery clash between undefeated number 1 and undefeated number 2 in what is undeniably the headliner of match day 6 with the winner retaining the undefeated bragging rights for however long.

  • Match Day 7 of the Ghana premier league will be honoured this weekend with the clash between Medeama and Hasaacas postponed as the former takes to Sudan for CAF confederation cup assignment this weekend.

  • The Ghana premier league will enter match day 8 this Wednesday with seven games out of the usual eight scheduled to take place at various centers across the country.

  •  Reinvigorated Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s recent surge in the PL was on Saturday shot down at the Baba Yara Stadium as hitherto visiting cellar dwellers stunned the home side with a lone goal to deny them their bid for a third successive win, with Michael Osei picking up his first defeat as Interim Coach.

    Home Score Away
    Kotoko 0-1 New Edubiase
    Wa All Stars 2-0 Inter Allies
    Techiman City 2-0 Bechem United
    WAFA 2-0 Ebusua Dwarfs
    AshantiGold 1-2 Hearts of Oak
    Berekum Chelsea 3-0 Dreams FC
    Hasaacas 0-1 Liberty
    Aduana 3-0 Medeama SC


    With Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi back in charge of the reins following a rumored misunderstanding between his employers and him, Accra Hearts of Oak ended their 3 game non-winning run in the PL at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium, as they picked up what was incidentally their first victory in 9 years against AshGold at Obuasi, courtesy of a Cosmos Dauda brace to add to the woes of the longsuffering reigning champions, and at the Wa Park, PL leaders – All Stars - added to the misery of a good but underperforming Inter Allies team to maintain their 2point edge over title contenders, Accra Hearts of Oak.

    In a stunning turn of events, Sekondi Hasaacas failed to rebound at home as they picked up their first home defeat of the season on 90 minutes, newly promoted Techiman City continued their dominance over their PL peers in the Brong Ahafo Region as they added Bechem United to their conquest list to complete the first round season sweep of all their regional rivals and WAFA capitalized on their home court to dispatch the visiting Crabs (Ebusua Dwarfs) by two goals to nothing.

    Also on Sunday, Aduana dispatched Tom Strand’s Medeama CAF Confederation Cup play-off round contenders by three goals to nothing for their fourth win of the season and B. Chelsea made mincemeat of visiting Dreams FC who have thus far not been shabby on the road, dispatching their guests to Dawu with a 3-0 deficit.

    Kotoko 1-0 New Edubiase – Kumasi

    New Edubiase end winning run for Michael Osei and Asante Kotoko

    The Reds search for their third straight victory stalled at home on Saturday as they succumbed to their second home defeat of the season, a lone goal loss under the stewardship of interim coach Michael Osei who had nabbed 3 straight wins in all competitions.

    Coach Anthony Kommeh and his hitherto cellar dwelling New Edubiase side finally caught the break they had been looking for as they picked up just their second win and first away win of the season to leapfrog to the 13th spot.

    Prince Antwi’s 20th minute goal sealed the deal for the visitors as Kotoko puffed and huffed fruitlessly for the equalizer with the likes of Ahmed Adams and Dauda Mohammed missing out on numerous incredible chances to equalize as the Edubiase defence, especially, shot stopper - Benjamin Mensah – hauled in several heroic saves to deny Kotoko.

    The loss dropped the Porcupine Warriors from mid-table to 9th on 11 points and 9points of the summit.

    Wa All Stars 2-0 Inter Allies – Wa Park

    Wa All Stars maintain top spot and unbeaten home run

    PL leaders, Wa All Stars rebounded beautifully at home against reeling Inter-Allies with a 2-0 win to hold on to the top spot on 20points.

    Late second half goals, the first from Richard Arthur who pounced on a Maxwell Baako cross midway through the second half, and the second from Emmanuel Ocran who finished off a team move late in injury time sealed all 3points for All Stars.

    The bright spot on the day for the visitors was goalie Osei Kwame who pulled a string of remarkable saves to help his side keep the deficit low. Inter dropped to the third relegation spot on 8 points from 8 matches and will have to fix their recent ails before it gets too late.

    Techiman City 2-0 Bechem Utd – Techiman

    Techiman City add Bechem to conquest list.

    Techiman City got back into the winning column at home following their 2-1 road loss to Ebusua Dwarfs this past Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Bechem United to complete a first round sweep of all their regional rivals, namely, B. Chelsea, Aduana and Bechem Utd.

    The Citizens were the superior team on the afternoon in almost all departments and goals from Issaka Ibrahim and Isaac Baah sandwiched between both halves of the game proved to be the difference as they picked up their 4th home win of the season to maintain their 7th spot on the log.

    Bechem also maintained their 11th perch on the log on 10points.

    WAFA 2-0 Dwarfs – Sogakope

    WAFA win at home without Samuel Tetteh

    WAFA picked up their fourth victory of the season with a 2-0 spanking of visiting Ebusua Dwarfs.

    Charles Boateng 26th minute goal and another from Ibrahim Tanko were enough for all 3points as Dwarfs who missed a couple of key players due to injury looked out of sorts and outclassed with Nicholas Gyan missing a good scoring opportunity for the Crabs.

    WAFA improved to 5th on 14points whilst fell another notch (15th) into the relegation places.

    AshantiGold 1-2 Hearts of Oak – Obuasi

    Hearts of Oak end 3 game non-winning run 9year non-winning drought at Len Clay with Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi back in charge following a rumored misunderstanding with Hearts of Oak brass.

    Winning in sports they say cures all things and perhaps that is what the ‘coaching crisis’ hit Accra Hearts of Oak needed as they killed two birds with one stone on Sunday, halting their 3 game non-winning run and a 9 year winning drought at Obuasi.

    Cosmos Dauda powered the Phobians to victory with his brace; the first in the 52nd minute as he chased down a flicked header for the opener and the second just before the 55th minute as headed home a Mustapha Essuman cross before Awudu Nafiu gave the home side a slim hope of eventually levelling up the score as he pulled one back for the hosts on 73 minutes. But it ended up being nothing more than a consolation as the Phobians hung on for their third road win of the season to hold on to the second spot on 18points, and 2points off the top spot.

    The brace is Cosmos Dauda’s second on the season and his third goal from his last two PL matches.

    Perhaps the victory is a good omen for the Phobians whose last victory against AshGold at Obuasi on 28/02/07 (9yrs, 1month, 3wks, 6days), a lone goal win culminated in a PL Title win on the season.

    AshGold remain 10th on 10points after the loss.

    Chelsea 3-0 Dreams – Berekum

    Dreams FC pick up first back-to-back defeat of the season as Chelsea maintain perfect home record.

    Berekum Chelsea moved into the PL top-four following a comfortable 3-0 victory over visiting newbies, Dreams FC, who picked up their first back-to-back defeat in the PL after a credible 8 game run that saw them lose twice.

    A double from top scorer Saddick Adams in the second half of the game and another, the opener from Seth Appiah deep into the first half handed all 3points to the home side who moved into the fourth spot on the log on 16points.

    Dreams plummeted from the third to the seventh spot on 14points with the loss.

    Hasaacas 0-1 Liberty – Sekondi

    Visiting Liberty stun Hasmal at home.

    Match favorites Sekondi Hasaacas were given a shocker at home by Liberty Professionals who managed to bag all 3points at Essipong against all the odds hand Hasaacas their second straight of the season.

    Hasmal dominated the match especially in the first half but failed to convert with Eric Bekoe leading the charge but missing the few chances that came their way whilst the visitors who looked as though they will be satisfied with a point held on.

    But with the game heading towards a draw, Bernard Arthur, chose the most inopportune time to strike for the winner – the 90th- minute to leave Hasaacas with almost no time to strike the equalizer.

    The victory catapulted Liberty to the 3rd spot on 16 points whilst Hasaacas somehow moved from 13th to 12th on the log on 10 points.

    Aduana 3-0 Medeama – Dormaa

    Medeama SC drop to bottom of PL log

    Playing back-to-back home games for the first time this season, Aduana Stars, continued from where they left off last week, as they dispatched visiting CAF Confederation Cup play-off round contenders Medeama SC by a whopping 3 goals to nothing for a record 7 goals from two PL matches following their midweek blowout of Hasaacas by 4 goals to nothing.

    Former Kotoko striker Mohammed Yahaya scored yet another brace on the match day; the first in the 35th minute, courtesy of Zakaria Mumuni’s cross before making it a double around the 60th minute mark.

    Elvis Opuku sealed the deal in the waning moments of the game to put an already lost game well beyond the reach of their visitors.



    Abena Alice with news wires


    • On Sunday, the pressure will be on Accra Hearts of Oak to avoid a 0-2 start to the season as they make the long trip to the Tarkwa Akoon Park ...

    Following a mixed bag of results this past weekend on the opening day of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season that led to heightened drama in the camp of Accra Hearts of Oak, and the subsequent firing of their head coach, Kim Grant, and the coaches of Karela FC and Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs jumping on to the hot seat immediately following losses at home, the pairings for this weekend have the promise of piling up the pressure on several teams as they look to make amends and forestall a 0-2 start to the young season.

    • Elsewhere on Sunday, WAFA edged Ebusua Dwarfs by two goals to nothing, while Liberty professionals and Karela FC picked up a point at Berekum Chelsea ...

    Week 02 of the Ghana Premier League got underway this past Friday with the highly anticipated explosive home opener for Legon Cities FC formerly known as Wa All Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium ending in disappointment as Asante Kotoko climbed back from a goal down to beat them by three goals to one.

  • With the first round of the season’s highly anticipated and greatly patronized ‘Super Clash’ in the books and the ‘Never Say Die faithful’s’ trying to rinse the bitter taste of defeat out of their mouths as well as rid their memories of the unfortunate howler from their top goalie – Abdoulaye Soulama – that handed the Reds an unexpected victory, Kenichi Yatsuhashi and his charges will make the long trip to Brong Ahafo with the aim of avoiding their first back-to-back defeat of the season as guests of a B. Chelsea side that is also looking to get back into the winning column after being edged and bundled out of the top four spots by Edubiase. The Reds on their part will look forward to continuing their rejuvenation and upward move on the log as hosts of cellar dwellers – Cape Coast Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs – who hopefully will remember to pack some of the mystic in their name for this encounter to avoid a rout.

  •  The pressure to win on the road caught up with hitherto PL leaders – Wa All Stars – as precocious and newly promoted side – Techiman City FC – extended their unbeaten home run to five despite conceding a goal on their home turf for the first time this season as they handed Wa All Stars their first back-to-back defeat of the season and bundled them off the summit on a sound 2-1 scoreline in their match day 11 encounter at the Nana Ameyaw Park in Techiman to move into the fourth spot.

  •  The new found excitement in this year’s Premier League spilled over into Match Day 12 as traditional giants - Accra Hearts of Oak and bitter rivals Asante Kotoko - continue to flourish following some coaching brouhaha that both clubs seemed to have overcome for now, as both sides won again, with the Reds perhaps setting up the stage for an eventual showdown for the top spot held for now by the Rainbow Shirted lads, a showdown that Aduana Stars is determined to have a say in, as they won a record 5th consecutive game in this year’s PL to move into the second spot on 22points.

  • The chronicles of the past 12 match days has rewarded pain and ecstasy in equal measure, and I bet match day 13 would not have been any different, except for the fact that the ‘soccer gods’ of the land somehow foresaw this match day in the making and decided to up the ante for Premier League fans by pitting PL leaders – Accra Hearts of Oak - against Aduana Stars in what is undeniably one of the best clashes of the season thus far, as number one takes on number two in the standings for the summit, with a resurgent Asante Kotoko side aiming to close the gap on the top spot.

  •  Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi and his Rainbow Shirted lads validated their undefeated away record in this year’s PL, upping it to a record 7 straight games without defeat as they came from a goal down to hold Coach Aristicã Cioãbã and his in-form high scoring raging Fire Boys at the vaunted Nana Agyemang Badu Park where the latter had until the Phobians stop racked up 5 straight victories, and an overall 5 game winning run. Not to be outdone, Reds interim coach – Michael Osei - and his Porcupine Warriors piled up the pressure on the Phobians and the Fire Boys for the summit with a lone goal victory over visiting Inter Allies, to move into the third spot, just 2points adrift off the summit as we move into the penultimate stage of the first round.

  • Penultimate matches of the first half of this year’s Ghana Premier League season will come on as scheduled at the various league centers this midweek with Accra Hearts of Oak’s quest to hold on to the top spot facing yet another test as they host a dangerous looking Liberty FC side in another ‘closed door’ encounter on Thursday, the last of a 2 game home punishment handed to them by the nation’s top soccer governing body, the GFA. Aduana Stars meteoric rise to the top will be tested on the road against a struggling Ebusua Dwarfs that needs to win at least one of their last two games of this half to avoid being buried too deep at the bottom.

  •  Accra Hearts of Oak choked on the perfect home opportunity to maintain their perch at the summit and also open a 3point lead as they succumbed to their third home defeat of the season, a lone goal loss to regional rivals – Liberty Professionals and relinquished the top spot to Wa All Stars in their match day 14 encounter played behind the closed doors of the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday. Also on Thursday, Dreams FC ended their game non-winning run with a lone goal away victory that dropped that dropped Edubiase FCto the bottom of the PL.

  • Following a very exciting and entertaining Match Day 14 that was highlighted by three title contenders - Hearts, Aduana and Kotoko - dropping the maximum points, the first round of the thrilling 2016 Ghana Premier League season will roll to a halt with exciting weekend action at the various league centers with the top spot opened for the taking between the top five teams.

  • With the PL top spot wide opened for the plucking and each of the top four teams (Wa All Stars, Hearts of Oak, Aduana and Liberty) needing a win to stay in contention, Wa All Stars overcame their recent road woes – a two game losing run - as they shocked their hosts B. Chelsea with a lone goal to hold on to the summit and their 2point lead over the competition to end the first half of the season on a high note.

  • The second round of the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season commenced this Sunday with all the anticipated excitement in tow. PL leaders, Wa All Stars, made it three straight wins in as many PL outings as they picked up the action right where they left off - in the winning column - with another huge victory to wrap up the double over visiting Berekum Chelsea, after downing them by a lone goal on match day 15 to maintain their grip on the summit and their 2points lead over the closest competition.

  • The excitement of the GPL continues this Wednesday with some dicey fixtures. The league which is in its 17th week has produced a lot of interesting events with some unfamiliar results.

  • Title contenders – Kumasi Asante Kotoko – kept their quest for the PL title alive and well as they moved into the second spot and a point closer to the top following their lone goal victory over PL leaders - Wa All Stars - that ended the latter’s quest for a fourth straight win. PL title hopefuls - Accra Hearts of Oak - saw their campaign stall once again at the hands of their pesky rivals – Liberty Profs. – as all they could manage was a mere point despite playing the match on their turf, and Aduana Stars reignited their bid for the title with a 3-0 thrashing of the visiting Ebusua Dwarfs to move two points closer to the top spot.

  • The Ghana Premier League will enter Match Day 18 this weekend following a short break that saw Accra Hearts of Oak play and lose this year’s Presidents’ Cup on the 1st of July to their nemesis – Asante Kotoko – via the PK route, and a couple of outstanding matches being cleared.

  • Match Day 18 of the Ghana premier league came on as scheduled this weekend with all the top four teams on the log hitting a brick wall as all they could manage was pick up a point in their respective encounters, starting with title hopefuls – Asante Kotoko – who fluffed the opportunity to move up top on Saturday, as hosts, Inter Allies, fought back from a goal down to salvage a point but dropped to the last but one relegation spot.

  • The excitement in the Ghana premier league will be at its peak this weekend as the biggest match of the second round comes off at the Baba Yara Stadium this Sunday when Kumasi Asante Kotoko host their bitterest rival Accra Hearts of Oak. The normal hostilities between these two clubs have been heightened by recent developments on the league table. The results of the game will define the destiny of both clubs insofar as winning this year’s title is concerned.

  • The Ghana Premier League will enter Match Day 22 on Wednesday with a fresh three horse race brewing in the background as Medeama SC from out of the blue with the 5th spot, 33points and three games in hand readies to give Hearts of Oak and WA All Stars a run for the top spot. Kotoko have fallen down the pecking order and will need to react fast or miss out on the title chase.

  •  Premier League title hopefuls - Accra Hearts of Oak’s - inability to win at home  continue to haunt them as they once again choked on another golden opportunity to win at home and widen their lead atop the summit with their closest competition, Wa All Stars, dropping valuable points on the road. Instead, they settled for a 1-1 tie with the visiting PL defending champions – AshGold – who have turned into ‘draw specialists’ in their Match Day 22 encounter played in midweek style at the Accra Sports Stadium.

  • Premier league action will continue this weekend with the path to the title still open; Kotoko’s chances have tailed off somewhat, Medeama’s hopes of making a push for the summit have evaporated after picking up three straight losses from their outstanding matches, Wa All Stars have reignited their PL title hopes after leapfrogging to the second spot and a point off the summit, Aduana Stars have also drawn two points closer,  upstarts - Dreams FC – have jumped into the race, albeit 4points off the summit, leaders, Hearts of Oak, remain unable to capitalize and widen their lead after several bungled opportunities at home, and it’s not going to get any easier as they take on PL year two side – WAFA – in the topmost encounter of the weekend on Saturday with the summit on the line.

  • Match Day 24 of the Ghana Premier League ended this Saturday with Kumasi Asante Kotoko being the biggest winners as they maintained their rekindled hopes of adding this year’s title to their cache by completing the double over their hosts – Liberty Professionals – courtesy of a 2-0 win to move within two points of the summit, although they maintained their fourth spot, and Hearts of Oak’s quest to end their seven year old title drought continues to slip away from their grasp, as they for the umpteenth time this season bungled another perfect opportunity to win at home and take over the top spot. Instead, they settled for a 1-1 tie with the visiting Techiman City FC to drop to the third spot on the log.

  • Action continues on Wednesday across the country as the Ghanaian topflight league enters Match Day 25 with several exciting fixtures to look out for, especially at two venues, Kumasi and WA, where two feisty top four encounters involving all the title contenders will take place.

  • The Ghana Premier League will enter Week 26 this weekend with the race for the top spot far from decided and no runaway winner in sight as the top four teams with just 1 and 2points separation between them all played to a pulsating draw in a rare midweek top four clash that had title hopes on the line. And, with the race for survival in the PL also far from over; New Edubiase breathing new life into their still ailing campaign, Inter Allies unable to generate enough steam to move up, Hasaacas sliding in out of drop zone consciousness, Liberty Professionals and Techiman City plummeting into the relegation fray with just 2points cushioning them from the first relegation spot, the schedule takes an attention-grabbing turn as it pits two of the top four teams against two of the bottommost teams with huge stakes on the line.


    Home Score  Away
    Inter Allies 4-0 New Edubiase
    Techiman City 1-1 Liberty Professionals
    Ebusua Dwarfs 0-2 Medeama SC
    AshantiGold 1-0 Hasaacas
    Bechem United 3-1 Hearts of Oak
    WAFA 1-1 Aduana Stars
    Asante Kotoko 0-0 Berekum Chelsea
    Wa All Stars 3-1 Dreams FC


    Ghana Premier League leaders – Wa All Stars – on Sunday afternoon stayed the course of annexing their first PL title in club history with a 3-1 trouncing of Dreams FC to open a 3point differential at the summit over the pursuing 2010 PL winners - Aduana Stars - who were unlucky to escape with victory at the dreaded Red Bulls Arena in Sogakope where they forced the fancied home favorites – WAFA – to climb back into the game from a goal down to restore parity for a share of the spoils.

  • The Ghana Premier League returns this weekend after a short break with great expectations as the end beckons with three matches left to determine the destination of the PL title as well as decide on the two clubs that will join relegated Edubiase on the journey to the world of Division One soccer.

    Coupled with the brewing battle between 6 teams to beat the drop, and the summit still being up for grabs despite Wa All Stars 3point advantage over the pursuing Aduana Stars, third and fourth placed Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak having a slim chance of breaking through for the title, match day 28 promises to be interesting from top to bottom.

    League leaders - Wa All Stars – will attempt to make it all count for the ultimate prize as they make the long trip to Accra to square off against relegation embroiled Liberty Professionals who need the win badly to save their season, Aduana Stars will have the advantage of drawing level for the summit as they host Techiman City, Hearts of Oak will kick off the post-Traguil era with Yaw Preko in charge as interim manager at home against Ebusua Dwarfs as they look to break out of their recent 7 games slump,  and Asante Kotoko will take on Medeama SC in the weekend’s top liner at the Tarkwa T&A Park with hopes of ending their 3 games winless run.

    Elsewhere, team of the moment – Bechem Utd – will be guests of relegated New Edubiase, Berekum Chelsea will take on AshGold, Hasaacas will attempt to rekindle their survival hopes at the expense of WAFA and Dreams FC will entertain relegation threatened Inter Allies.

    All match day 28-30 games of the current season will kick-off simultaneously.

    Liberty Professionals v WA All Stars - Dansoman

    Thirteenth placed Liberty Professionals are in danger of being relegated compared to All Stars who are in pole position to annex the glorious league title for the first time.

    With 32 points, Liberty are just a point safe and must produce a fine performance to win as a loss will likely drop them to relegation places.

    For All Stars a win will give their title push a huge shot in the arm while a defeat could see them relinquish the top spot.

    Liberty have bettered the Northern Blues eight times in 18 league matches, lost four and drew six times.

    And are yet to taste defeat against All Stars in the last six fixtures.

    Medeama SC v Asante Kotoko - Tarkwa

    The top liner of the week will see Medeama lock horns with inconsistent Kotoko whose title chances solely depend on the outcome of this clash.

    Medeama are on the rise. They are capable of wreaking havoc and Kotoko must work hard to avoid that.

    However, Kotoko will have Black Stars new boy Dauda Mohammed back in their fold. The youngster can be a thorn in the flesh of Medeama if not checked.

    Asante Kotoko tipped heavily to land the title after a sensational preseason are within six points of the summit and cannot afford another slip.

    Medeama have their sights firmly set on a top four finish after narrowly missing out on the semifinal of CAF Confederation Cup. The last three matches between the two have ended in stalemates.

    Hearts of Oak v Ebusua Dwarfs – Accra

    The post Traguil era with Yaw Preko in charge as interim manager for the Phobians will commence with a home match against Ebusua Dwarfs as they look to rebound from the humiliating 3-1 loss at Bechem in their last PL outing and also overcome a recent string of bad outcomes that has seen them go winless in their last seven PL outings; 2 losses and 5 ties.

    The 3-1 humiliating defeat at the hands of Bechem was too much for the club to take thus prompting the decision to demote the Portuguese.

    Fans will expect nothing short of victory start to the new era. Cosmos Dauda, Sumudeen Ibrahim, Patrick Razak and the likes must up the ante to revive the dwindling fortunes of the club.

    The Phobians have a slim chance of winning the PL title although they are 6points out, and that depends solely on winning all their remaining 3 matches those ahead of them dropping valuable points.

    Dwarfs will be seeking a return to the win column after stunning back to back defeats against Bechem United and Medeama at home, they can be hopeful of grinding out a positive result against the Phobians whose performance at home this season has been awful.

    Aduana Stars v Techiman City - Dormaa

    The clash between two teams from the same region, Brong-Ahafo, but headed in different direction on the table.

    Aduana are second with 45 points. Techiman currently lie 10th with 34 points. The latter were earlier candidates for relegation but 3points from an FA Disciplinary Committee ruling against New Edubiase has since seen the Citizens rise up from the bottom to gain some relief from the relegation cloud.

    A win for Techiman allows them to continue their surge up the log. For the home side, a win allows them to inch closer to the top whilst a loss may dampen their title hopes.

    Both sides have their destinies in their hands but the tide seems to favor a desperate Aduana side that wants to win the league.

    Berekum Chelsea v Ashanti Gold - Berekum

    With 35points and three points adrift of the drop zone, 12th placed Berekum Chelsea will have the chance to secure their 11th win of the season and also put some distance between them and the relegation zone with a victory over Ashgold.

    Chelsea failed to capitalize on the opportunity to leave the Kumasi with all the spoils as they shared the spoils with Kotoko whilst the Miners won a hard fought lone goal victory over Hasaacas at home.

    The pressure is on Chelsea in this one and they can pull it off against an Ashgold side that does not fared too well on the road but are capable of pushing for a tie.

    Dreams FC v Inter Allies - Dawu

    At Dawu, wounded Dreams will be in search of a resounding victory over rejuvenated but relegation embroiled relegation Inter Allies as they seek to close in on a top four spot.

    The two sides endured different fortunes in last PL outings. Allies battered Edubiase 4-0 to boost their hopes of escaping the drop whilst Dreams FC suffered a 3-1 mauling at the hands of All Stars at the dreaded WA Park and will surely want to return to winning ways this weekend. We can expect a tough one.

    Hasaacas v WAFA - Sekondi

    WAFA could prove a hard nut to crack for Hasaacas who are seeking to move out of the relegation bracket.

    Hasmal failed to make the most of their outstanding game against Medeama, and they may not be lucky to collect maximum the maximum points at the expense of WAFA who can be a handful on Sunday.

    Hasaacas shockingly threw away a two goal lead to settle for a 2-2 draw, a win would have seen them out of danger and boosted their chances.

    Hasaacas capitulated as WAFA run riot 5-1 in the first leg at the latter's home ground. A result WAFA can draw inspiration from to secure their first away win of the campaign.

    New Edubiase v Bechem United - Bekwai

    Edubiase will play for pride against MTN FA Cup champions Bechem United. The Bekwai-based side have been demoted to the second-tier following the disciplinary committee's decision to dock them six points for fielding an unqualified player in a match against Techiman City which they won 2-1.

    The fully rejuvenated Bechem side with the easiest schedule on the weekend will be in search of their fifth straight victory.

    We can expect Bechem to win this one hands down with perhaps a huge goal haul in tow.

    Tologolese import Foovi Aguidi celebrate game winner with team mates



    Brong Ahafo based Aduana Stars this afternoon boosted their chances of winning their second Premier League title with an impressive 4-0 obliteration of visiting regional neighbors – Techiman City FC – to draw level with and overtake hitherto leaders – Wa All Stars – on 48points as the latter saw their path to the title slowed down a bit, as relegation embroiled Liberty Professionals handed them a painful lone goal defeat to boost their chances of beating the drop. And, Ebusua Dwarfs once again sparked fears of relegation among their fans as they lost for the third straight time in as many outings, this time to previously fourth placed Accra Hearts of Oak who gave their fast fading title hopes a weak shot in the arm with the lone goal win for their first win after seven consecutive PL appearances which came under the leadership of interim coach Yaw Preko to improve to 3points adrift of the summit they once held.

    Kumasi Asante Kotoko once again saw their chances of annexing of the title continue to diminish, as hosts, Medeama SC, came back from a goal down for a share of the spoils to leave the former five solid points adrift and Berekum Chelsea took full advantage of their surroundings to hand dethroned PL Champions AshGold a 2-0 to improve their survival odds against the relegation bug.

    Elsewhere, relegation threatened Inter Allies put up a remarkable performance at the Theatre of Dreams to pick up all 3points at the expense of Dreams FC to move out of the relegation places to the 12th spot and into a three way 34 points tie, with Ebusua Dwarfs and Techiman City who were all losers on Sunday and have the 13th and 14th spot respectively. Not to be outdone Sekondi Hasaacas picked up all 3points at home against WAFA but it was not enough to enable them shake off the last but one spot, and demoted cellar dwellers – New Edubiase – continued to march out of the Premier League with a lone goal home loss to newly crowned MTN FA Cup Champions -Bechem Utd – who won for the fifth straight time in as many outings.


    Liberty Professionals 1-0 WA All Stars – Dansoman

    At the Dansoman Carl Reindorf Park, relegation threatened Liberty Professionals put up a spirited fight to hand hitherto visiting league leaders – Wa All Stars – a lone goal loss to keep their season alive as they continue their quest to avoid relegation.

    Diminutive midfielder Latif Blessing’s lone goal around the 25th minute mark, his 14th of the season was the difference maker as his side held on to the lead for the maximum points and an inspiring lift to the 11th spot on 35points with 2 games to the end of the season.

    With the loss, WA All Stars ceded the top spot to Aduana Stars on goals aggregate etc. to set the stage for a photo finish to the title race as they continue their search for their first PL title.

    Medeama SC 1-1 Asante Kotoko – Tarkwa

    At the Tarkwa T&A Park, Medeama SC failed to capitalize on their home advantage in their bid to break into the top four ranks for the first time this season as they were forced by the visiting Asante Kotoko unit who were putting in a last-minute gasp effort for the title to come back from a goal down for a share of the spoils.

    Erik Donkor’s 53rd minute strike gave the visiting Porcupine Warriors the lead before Bismark Oppong waning moment effort with 7 minutes to the end of the game rescued a point for the home side to deny the Porcupine Warrior the max points and a shot at this year’s title.

    The tie dropped Kotoko to the fourth spot, effecting closing their path to the title whilst Medeama SC retained the 5th spot on 42points.

    Hearts of Oak 1-0 Ebusua Dwarfs – Accra

    At the Accra Sports Stadium, the post Sergio Traguil coaching era with Yaw Preko in charge started on a winning note as the Phobians ended their 7 game non-winning run with a hard fought lone goal victory over a visiting and determined Ebusua Dwarfs side who lost for the third straight time in as many appearances to spark talks of relegation among the faithful Crab’s fans following a brief resurgence that lifted them from the cellar to the upper half of the log table.

    Precious Togolese import – Foovi Aguidi’s – first goal of the season, the result of a beautifully struck free-kick from the edge of the box ended up being what the Phobians needed for just their third home win of the second round as the Crabs huffed and puffed in vain for the equalizer.

    The victory boosted whatever slim chances the Phobians have of ending their 7year title drought as they moved to the 3rd spot on 45points, a full game’s win away from the summit they once held. For Dwarfs the loss threw them back into the fluid relegation chaos, to the 13th spot on 34points and into a three way tie for the first relegation spot with Inter Allies holding on to the 12th spot and Techiman City the 14th.

    Aduana Stars 4-0 Techiman City – Dormaa

    At the Nana Agyeman Badu Park in Dormaa, hitherto second placed Aduana Stars stayed the course for their second PL title in club history with a 4-0 obliteration of rival Techiman City FC to vault to the summit on 48points over Wa All Stars who dropped valuable points on the road on the day.

    A first half 19th minute goal from striker Yahaya Mohammed opened the floodgates before Daniel Darkwa, Bright Adjei and Derrick Sasraku all scored midway through the second half. Yahaya Mohammed missed an opportune chance from the spot to make it a 5-0 rout for the Fire Boys who now remain in strong contention for the title.

    For the losing Techiman City crew, the loss dropped them to the first relegation spot and they will have to win their last two remaining games to have a shot at survival.

    Berekum Chelsea 2-0 Ashanti Gold – Berekum

    At the Golden City Park in Berekum, B. Chelsea continued their effort to beat the drop with an impressive and convincing 2-0 vital win over the visiting dethroned league Champions to move to one spot below mid-table on 37points.

    Following a goalless first half Sadiq Haji’s 49th minute goal after the break gave the hosts the lead before Steven Kakyire converted from the spot to put the game well out of the reach of the struggling AshGold side who lost for the 6th time this season.

    The loss dropped AshGold to the 10th spot on 36points, just 2points adrift of safety and they will have to win in midweek to avoid a potential tumble into the relegation places.

    Dreams FC 0-2 Inter Allies - Dawu

    At the Theatre of Dreams, wounded Dreams FC who were looking to get back into the winning column following last week’s 3-1 thumping at the hands of Wa All Stars, instead they yielded to a rare back-to-back loss as they lost at home to hard-pressed relegation threatened Inter Allies to fall to mid-table and end whatever hopes they had of a top four finish.


    Dreams FC 0-1 Inter Allies

    Frederick Boateng’s solitary 60th minute opening goal was enough to give Inter Allies their first away win of the season as well as revive their PL survival chances as they improved the 12th spot on 34points and a three way tie with 2 other clubs for the first relegation spot.

    Hasaacas 2-1 WAFA – Sekondi

    Sekondi Hasaacas continued their diminishing efforts to avoid relegation despite notching a crucial and vital 2-1 win at home over visiting WAFA, after climbing out of a goal deficit.

    Dangerous Togolese goal poacher – Komlan Agbegniadan – who has led the scoring chart for the Academy lads since joining the team in the second round struck the opener to the chagrin of the home fans in the first half before Kingsley Adjei leveled for the under pressure and relegation threatened Hasmal outfit after Kwadwo Poku had missed a 19th minute chance to draw his side level from the spot. Saliw Babawo gave Hasaacas a shot at redemption and survival with his late winner deep into the second half.

    For Hasaacas, it was a brilliant and well-earned victory but they will have to make it count eventually as it wasn’t enough to move them out of the 15th spot. For WAFA, they remain well above the relegation fray and need just a win to secure themselves against any unexpected eventualities.

    New Edubiase 0-1 Bechem United – Bekwai

    Relegated New Edubiase failed to give their fans something to at least cheer about as they lost by a lone goal to Bechem Utd at home.

    Youngster Osei Bonsu’s last kick of the game gave the Hunters who are now on a ferocious winning run their fifth straight win in their last 5 PL outings to improve to the 6th spot on 41points.

    The Bekwai-based side have already lost the attempt at staving off relegation.

    GPL log at week 28


    With no clear favorite to win it all in sight yet, GPL penultimate games will come on in midweek style tomorrow with the stage set for an exciting photo finish to the season as Aduana Stars and Wa All Stars square off for the top spot with Aduana eying revenge as they try to avoid being swept by Wa All Stars after losing to them at home in the first round. And, 3points out of contention Hearts of Oak will look to get back in the title race with a very slim chance that can do with some divine intervention from the ‘soccer gods’. On the bottom end, the pulsating quest to avoid relegation will likely end on the final match day of the season as we seem to have 5 teams awash in the relegation pool - 3 of them tied on 34points for the first relegation spot and needing to up their game to avoid the fate of relegated New Edubiase. More so for Hasaacas who have 33points and for now seem to be in a deeper hole.

    Captivatingly, the ‘soccer gods’ could not have presented avid Ghanaian soccer fans with a better two game schedule to close out the season with Hearts of Oak having a slim shot at the title despite all the blown opportunities as the top two teams in the land who are tied for the lead duke it out at Wa’s Malik Jabir Park in the topmost encounter of the day for the right to take full control of the summit with the loser likely falling out of the chase and Hearts of Oak having the perfect opportunity at home to inch closer to the top if they can tame Medeama SC in their second straight game under the guidance of interim coach Yaw Preko. Fourth placed Asante Kotoko will have their hands full as guests of relegation entangled AshGold who need the win badly to assure their stay in tier-one soccer.

    The other topmost encounters of the day will be fought on the bottom of the log between relegation engulfed Inter Allies and Liberty Professionals, Techiman City and Hasaacas, Dwarfs vs demoted New Edubiase with the winners of these encounters likely to survive.

    Elsewhere, WAFA will host B. Chelsea with both teams needing the win badly to distance themselves from the brewing relegation battle below them, and same goes for Dreams FC who will attempt to avoid a third straight loss as guests of the red hot Bechem Utd.

    Dwarfs vs New Edubiase – Cape Coast

    From the PL cellar, to the middle and now back into the relegation throes Ebusua Dwarfs will have another shot at saving their season as they play host to relegated New Edubiase who have nothing to play for competitively in this one, except perhaps wreak havoc for the sake of companionship.

    A must win game for the Crabs who just made it back to the premiership this season, are tied for the first relegation spot on points with two other teams and have lost their last three games - 2 at home and one on the road. They seem to have the easiest schedule of the three and they need to capitalize to have a shot. Head to head Edubiase has taken 3 of the 5 clashes and it’s time Dwarfs evened things up.

    AshGold vs Kotoko – Obuasi

    10th placed and 2points off the first relegation spot struggling dethroned PL champions – AshantiGold – will have the chance to rebound from this past weekend’s 2-0 road beating at the hands of B. Chelsea and to get their relegation survival hopes on course with a victory over rivals Asante Kotoko.

    Kotoko ended whatever slim title hopes they had remaining after allowing their hosts – Medeama SC – to climb back into the game for a tie with 7 minutes to go, and the usual competitive atmosphere when these two slides clash is just not there given the directions the two sides are headed this year. 

    The onus however remains on AshGold to go for nothing short of the win at home where they are undefeated this second round to avoid falling deep into the relegation brouhaha than they already are.

    Head to head, they have split their last 5 meetings with a draw in between. AshGold will likely risk relegation with a loss or a tie.

    WAFA vs B. Chelsea – Sogakope

    A clash between two teams who look deceptively to be out of the relegation problems but nevertheless need to win to be assured of safety. Chelsea is coming off an impressive 2-0 home win over AshGold whilst their hosts are riding a 3 game non-winning run and need to get back into the winning column at home where they are unbeaten this season for their own safety.

    Head to head B. Chelsea has won twice as against WAFA’s one in the 3 meets between them. A tough and uncompromised game awaits as B. Chelsea will like to at worse leave with a point, something WAFA cannot afford in this clash.

    Techiman City vs Hasaacas – Techiman

    One of the topmost clashes of the day with the loser quite likely signing off on their relegation papers as the two sides lie uncomfortably in the grips of relegation. Hasaacas 15th on 33points and Techiman 34points on 14th, a loss will likely throw the loser deeper into the relegation hole.

    On paper, it looks like a win for Techiman despite losing some of the brilliant shine they have at home recently given Hasaacas’ poor record. But, they cannot afford to underrate the Hasmal Boys who have their backs against the wall and turned in a brilliant road performance at Medeama recently only to end up picking up a point after going up by 2 goals.

    Both sides will definitely be inspired to go for the win given the stakes as Hasaacas looks to build on this past Sunday’s 2-1 home win over WAFA and the Citizens look to bounce back from their 4-0 humiliation at Aduana. Head to head, Hasaacas won the only clash between them 4-2 in the first round at Essipong.

    Wa All Stars vs Aduana – Wa Park

    In the topmost encounter of the day, the two title hopefuls, who are currently tied for the top spot on 48points apiece with Aduana atop will have the chance to match each other boot for boot or mano a mano with the winner perhaps having an easier path to the ultimate prize as Aduana tries to avoid being swept by their hosts after losing the first fixture at home by a lone goal.

    The two contenders are coming off different trajectories this past weekend, Wa All Stars losing on the road by a lone goal to cede the summit to Aduana who tortured their neighbors – Techiman City – in a 4-0 rout.

    With the chance for their first ever PL title on the line and a second for Aduana, the two sides have enough to inspire them to go all out for the win. Unfortunately for Aduana, their hosts are undefeated at home this full term, but fortunately for Aduana they have proved themselves worthy road contenders in their last four road games, losing once, winning once and playing to two ties against a credible Kotoko and WAFA side and this can be enough motivation, not to mention the revenge factor as they look to pay their hosts back or at worse leave Wa with a point.

    Head to head the two sides have 2 wins apiece and a tie between them. Wa All Stars definitely have the advantage playing at home as Aduana tries to avoid being swept this season.

    Inter Allies vs Liberty – Tema                                                                                   

    In another of the day’s top encounter, relegation embroiled regional neighbors, 12th placed Inter Allies who are tied on 34points with 2 other teams for the first relegation spot will slug it out against 11th placed Liberty Professionals who are just a point away from the first relegation spot. Both teams notched vital wins this past Sunday to improve their chances of avoiding relegation. A match of epic proportions for the two teams who are almost evenly matched with the loser likely falling into the drop zone. Head to head, each side has taken two games out of their last five meets with one ending in a tie. Looks like Inter Allies have the upper hand playing at home but then they cannot afford to sleep on their guests.

    Bechem vs Dreams – Bechem

    In form Bechem Utd will be looking for their sixth straight win in as many outings as they play host to Dreams FC who will be looking to avoid their third straight loss.

    A very promising game for fans as the 8th placed Dreams FC who have 39points look to push above the fail-safe mark of 41points to avoid any last minute final day surprises. For the red hot hunters who hopped in the relegation places for a while, victory may mean a deserving and possible fourth placed finish should they be able to run the table from here on.

    Dreams FC won the very first encounter between the two sides, but they will be hard-pressed to do same at Bechem.

    Hearts of Oak vs Medeama - Accra

    Accra Hearts of Oak will have the chance to rekindle whatever hope they have left of ending their 7year title drought as they host Medeama SC at the nation’s Wembley in a must win big scoreline match and see what providence can do for them at Wa on Wednesday and Sunday.

    Both teams have had their title hopes derailed by circumstances within their control; for the Phobians, it’s been their inability to win at home given their more than decent road record as interim coach Yaw Preko goes in search of back to back home wins for the first time this half of the season, and for Medeama it has more to do with recently dropped points at home against Kotoko and Hasaacas.

    Victory for Medeama will largely be about a top four finish while a win for the Phobians may represent a chance to move up to the second spot or draw closer in the race in case of an Aduana or Wa All Stars loss or tie. But they must be able to score more than a goal or two in this match, and that is something they have been barely able to do at home or anywhere all season long. A goal or less per game has largely been their lot.

    Head to head, Medeama has the edge having won 2 and tied 2 of the last five meetings between the two sides. Hearts stunned the Yellow and Mauves by 2 goals to nothing in their season opener at Tarkwa and they seem to have the advantage in this one playing at home, but it remains to be seen if they can capitalize.

     Penultimate GPL games were played at the various stadiums this afternoon in midweek style with Wa All Stars completing the season’s sweep over hitherto first placed visiting Aduana Stars as they defeated the latter for the second time this season to annex their first ever PL title in club history in a hard-fought 2-1 victory. Accra Hearts of Oak continued their miserable run at home as they lost for the umpteenth time at home this season, this time to Medeama SC by a lone goal to shut the window on the tiny sliver of hope they had at an upset that wouldn’t have mattered anyway as Wa All Stars won at home to put themselves in the driver’s seat for the title. And dethroned PL Champions – AshGold - secured their stay in the premiership division in an eight goal-thriller that saw 3 penalty kicks being awarded and Kotoko losing by five goals to three.

  •  The 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season will draw to a close this weekend with ultimate games at the various league centres and Champions in waiting – Wa All Stars – scheduled to receive the PL trophy at the Essipong Stadium after taking on the already relegated Sekondi Hasaacas in a purely academic match whose result will have no effect on the destiny of the two teams.

  •  Hitherto winless Ebusua Dwarfs finally won their first game of the season on Saturday. It took half a dozen tries, but the Crabs finally did it, and they did it in style - dispatching visiting Inter Allies by an emphatic 3 goals to 1 score line to move out of the relegation places.

  •  At the Nana Gyeabour Park, hitherto, undefeated Premier League leaders, Wa All Stars, succumbed to their first defeat, halfway into the first round of the season at the hands of Bechem United, courtesy of a brace from Abednego Tagoe that saw Bechem move out of the relegation places. Dauda Mohammed’s lone goal at the Theater of Dreams handed Michael Osei, his third straight victory in all competitions as Interim Coach of the Porcupine Warriors, improving his record to a perfect record 3-0 as he continued his audition for the job.

  • The enthusiasm and energy generated in attendance at the various stadiums thus far in the Ghana Premier League has been more than expected but the goals tally has failed to keep pace, perhaps, a case of defenses getting stingier by the match day or a case of our strikers just failing to connect or just plain forgetting that fans just love to see the goals.

  • Match Day 6 of the Ghana Premier League ended this past weekend with some advances in one of the main areas fans have been complaining about – the goal scoring department – where many fans want to see more goals being scored.

  • These are a bunch of randomly selected goals from the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season.

    • Coach Henry Lamptey Wellington and his squad, will have the chance to see how far off they flung the proverbial monkey off their backs, as they host a talented and undefeated pesky Dreams FC side that handed them...

    So far, it’s been six days of grueling action, surprises, and excitement for the nation’s Premier League teams, and their teeming fans between Match Day 02 and 03. The exhilaration will definitely go up a notch this weekend, as the physical and mental toughness of the players is put under stress, on just about four days or so of rest with a lot on the line.

    • On Sunday, Aduana Stars Yahaya Mohammed scored the first hat-trick of the season, as his side run rampant over a 10-man Inter Allies with half a dozen goals, Karela FC won their first ever Ghana Premier League...

     Match day 04 of the ongoing Ghana Premier League concluded with a couple of interesting firsts of the season. Leaders, AshantiGold, saw their three-game winning run come to an end, and Elmina Sharks finally defeated WAFA to end their winless start to the season, as well as their two straight game losing run to the Academy Lads, dating back to last season.

    • A maiden encounter between two talented sides that have so far played very well with Karela FC allowing just a goal on the road per game and Dreams FC scoring just a goal per game at home.

     Match Day 05 of the Ghana Premier League will come on as scheduled this weekend with some exciting fixtures as unbeaten AshantiGold collide with Asante Kotoko in the Ashanti Derby with the summit on the line and Berekum Chelsea take on a rejuvenated Hearts of Oak side with hopes of grabbing their first win of the season.

    • But there were winners on Sunday, as unbeaten Premier League leaders AshantiGold shut out Asante Kotoko by two goals to nothing, and Berekum Chelsea handed Accra Hearts of Oak a 3-0 beat down for their first win of the season.

    Match Day 05 of the Ghana Premier League got underway yesterday without any winners as Wa All Stars and Elmina Sharks played to a 1-1 tie in the first match of the day. Ebusua Dwarfs and Bechem United also replicated the scoreline in the second match of the day, all at Obuasi’s Len Clay Stadium.

    • On the other hand, having tasted victory finally, this past Sunday, in their 2-0 shutout win over Eleven Wonders, it will be up Liberty’s Coach, Reginald Asante Boateng, to let that and their desperation to vacate the cellar buoy them up to victory.

    Following a very stunning Week 05 that saw traditional giants, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, succumb to their second defeat of the very young season, AshGold strengthen their grip at the helm, and Liberty Professionals win for the first time this season on their fourth attempt, Week 06 of the Ghana Premier League which comes on this midweek promises to be very interesting with some tricky fixtures on the schedule.

    • Aduana Stars continued their title defense with an impressive 4-1 destruction of regional neighbors, Eleven Wonders, for a third straight win in all competitions that saw them hike their total goal haul to 16 from three matches.

    • Interestingly, the 7th placed Sharks on 8points, who have a game in hand are riding an impressive four-game unbeaten streak (2 wins and 2 ties), with their only loss being a lone goal road loss to Dreams FC on opening day.

    Week 07 of the Ghana Premier League will come on this Saturday and Sunday with several attention-grabbing fixtures on the schedule and some must win matches for several hosts.

  • The Ghana Premier League crossed the halfway mark of the first round this midweek with traditional giants, Hearts of Oak and Kotoko still looking for the winning formula. But it was the Phobians, who had it worst, as Karela FC came from a goal down to hand them a sound 3-1 spanking, while Asante Kotoko managed to come back from a goal down to split the spoils with visiting Berekum Chelsea at home.

    • Kumasi Asante Kotoko took advantage of a listless Wa All Stars for their first road win of the season, Accra Hearts of Oak came back with an injury time goal to avert a third straight loss against Bechem United, and Eleven Wonders ended Medeama’s unbeaten four-game run with a lone goal.

  • Accra Hearts of Oak’s game against AshantiGold on Saturday got off to a pesky start with some off the field dramaas some AshGold supporters sought to deny Hearts of Oak's equipment manager – Sabahn Quaye - entry into his side’s dressing room.
