Berekum Chelsea made a quick return to the top of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League after pulling past Karela United 1-0 on Wednesday.
The Bibires, who lost the spot to Aduana Stars after match-day 7 last weekend, have established a one-point lead following their regional rivals’ surprise 3-1 defeat away to struggling Ebusua Dwarfs at Cape Coast.
55 minutes had passed before Berekum Chelsea defender Zackaria Fuseini powerfully struck what turned out the only goal of the encounter at Golden City Park.
It was from a free-kick at the edge of the Karela penalty area. And Zackaria, who captained his side, saw his ferocious shot take a deflection before beating goalkeeper Isaac Hagan.
Berekum Chelsea next face Elmina Sharks at Nduom Park while Karela United and Medeama, who share the Akoon Community Park as home grounds, face off in what should be a tasty match-day 9 derby.
