#GPLwk18: King Faisal draw blank at home to WAFA

Relegation-threatened King Faisal kicked off their 2020/21 Ghana Premier League (GPL) second round with a goalless draw at home to WAFA SC Sunday afternoon.

Kickoff was delayed for 35 minutes due to a heavy downpour at the Ohene Ameyaw Park, Techiman.

Faisal, who made some incredible additions to their squad for the second round of the campaign following a sloppy first half, were forced to make three substitutions in the opening 45 minutes due to injuries.

Kwadwo Frimpong headed wide a Paul Aidoo cross in the first half.

But WAFA responded when Lawrence Agyekum sent in a good cross from the left side, Augustine Boakye failed to finish off the cross.

At this point, the visitors were on top and should have taken the lead but debutant, Abdul Basit Siedu, messed up the opportunity as his ball went wide.

Injury forced King Faisal to take off Razak Toufiq and replaced by Atta Kusi. Sulley Mohammed also came on for Kwame Peprah after the forward signaled he could not continue and inside 37 minutes while Franklyn Osei had to be replaced by Ahmed Alim.

Before the half time whistle, Enock Asubonteng went close for WAFA but his shot went off target.

Enoch Morrison of King Faisal was handed a golden opportunity to score but he blew that chance.

WAFA SC, now on 23 points, sit in 11th place while King Faisal are third from the bottom of the standings with 18 points from as many games.
