Nsoatreman FC will compete in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) for the second time next season after defeating Aduana FC 2-1 in their penultimate fixture of the 2022/23 campaign Sunday afternoon.
They were one of four debutants in the soon-to-be-completed season, and have managed to hang on for another shot at top-flight football.
At the Nana Amoah Koramansah II Park, Nsoatreman appeared more pumped up since their Premier League status was at risk, while Aduana continued to radiate an unflattering image after losing the title race a fortnight earlier.
Samuel Ofori scored a quick brace in the 56th and 59th minutes for coach Boniface Ayipah’s team after the first half ended scoreless.
Aduana’s two-goal deficit was halved by striker Kelvin Obeng in the 66th minute.
The defense line of the hosts held steady in the closing stages of the game to prevent the Aduana onslaught from inflicting havoc.
Nsoatreman FC won 2-1 and progressed to safety with 46 points, four above the drop ahead of their final day drip to relegation-threatened Great Olympics.
Meanwhile, Aduana FC has dropped to third place in the league with 52 points after suffering a third straight defeat and going winless in their past five games.
