Aduana FC suffered a first defeat in the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League (GPL) as they went down 1-0 to Real Tamale United (RTU) at Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in Tamale on Sunday.

Stephen Dankwah Badu scored the only goal of the game as early as the 13th minute

RTU attacker Manaf Umar won the man-of-the-match award.

Now on 8 points and in 11th position in the standings, RTU have two each in wins, draws and defeats after 6 games.

Aduana, meanwhile, lose top spot and drop to third place with 13 points, just behind champions Asante Kotoko who only beat them with a superior goal difference.

Accra Lions now lead the pack with 15 points following their away win at Bechem United.
