King Faisal pulled off a great win against Legon Cities on match day 31 of the Ghana Premier League at the Ohene Amyeaw Park Thursday to boost their Premier League survival hopes.
Though Legon Cities headed into the fixture off the back of an amazing resurgence in the second round of the League – Faisal were in buoyant mood ahead of the match – with battle for survival on their mind.
King Faisal scored in either half of the game through Kwadwo Frimpong and star man Kwame Pepprah to beat the Royals. The Green and Whites came into the game with a fair result against Medeama SC (1-1) at Tarkwa and were bent on picking the three points to save their blushes.
It was Kwadwo Frimpong who opened the scoring 22 minutes into the game after a combination play from midfield. The two sides continued to keep an eye on a goal but luck shined on King Faisal who took the lead before the half time whistle.
Back from recess, star man Kwame Pepprah who has dip in form in the second of the campaign got on the score sheet 11 minutes into the second half. The goal will do his confidence a lot of good after netting the equalizer against Medeama in a 1-1 draw at the Akoon Park.
