#GPLwk22: Karela strike late to draw at King Faisal

Title-chasing Karela United battled back late to record a 1-1 draw against King Faisal in their 2020/21 Ghana Premier League (GPL) match-day 22 fixture Sunday afternoon.

Zubairu Ibrahim scored for the successive game to put Faisal ahead in the 17th minute of the game at Ohene Ameyaw Park.

The hosts created many opportunities but failed to extend their lead as the first half ended 1-0.

Karela came back strongly after recess and dominated for large periods.

With just a minute from time, forward Maxwell Boakye – who came off the bench to score in the last game at home to Hearts – netted a deserved leveller to hand Karela a share of the spoils, denying Faisal a first win in four home matches.

The result leaves visiting Karela United – who led the league at the halfway stage – winless in five second-round matches and now drop to 6th place, five points behind new leaders Medeama SC who are on 39. The point sees King Faisal still maintain their spot in the relegation zone.
