VIDEO: Medeama consolidate top spot with fightback win against King Faisal

Title-chasing Medeama SC turned around an early deficit to defeat relegation-threatened King Faisal 2-1 in the opening game of match-day 32 of the 2022/23 betPawa Ghana Premier League (GPL) Friday afternoon.

For the Mauve and Yellows, the victory at Akoon Community Park (ACP) in Tarkwa proves pivotal in their quest to conquer the Ghanaian top flight for the first time in history.

Faisal, who had lost four games with only a point in their last five, took an unexpected lead in the 11th minute. Captain Samuel Kusi caught goalkeeper Felix Kyei off guard with a long-range left-footer.

Medeama equalized 9 minutes later through Nurudeen Abdulai who headed in a cross from a corner kick.

Second-half substitute Joshua Agyemang scored the winner with a simple touch in the 67th minute following brilliant footwork on the left and an eventual cutback from winger Derrick Fordjour.

Medeama SC now have 56 points, four ahead of second-placed Aduana FC who host Dreams FC at Dormaa on Saturday. The league leaders have games against FC Samartex (away) and Tamale City on home soil to complete their campaign.

Meanwhile, the relegation fight gets murkier for King Faisal despite hopes of securing boardroom points in a case against Tamale City. The ‘Insha Allah’ boys currently sit 17th of the 18-team log with 36 points.
