The race for the Ghana Premier league honours since the inception of the 2020/2021 league season has been in contention by teams who were not favoured to will make any effort at the ultimate title following the signings of some teams in the GPL.
Legon Cities are among the clubs that were favorites to contest for the title but have since the start of the league struggled to get their game plan expertly executed.
The GPL week-14 fixtures saw Legon Cities play host to Kumasi King Faisal at the Accra Sports Stadium with their target to pick all three points from the visitors.
Coach Bashir Hayford had a lot of work to do to bring the best out of his players with one of the teams most expensive signing out due to injury and their wonder boy Matthew Anim Cudjoe on national assignment.
Kumasi King Faisal who are battling an escape from the relegation zone had to improvise and play to intimidate the home side which seemed to be working for them. Both teams played cautious and made little efforts at goal during the first 45’.
The second half was full of promise as both teams decided to go for maximum points as it would go a long way to ensure their grounds in the GPL.
King Faisal over an hour of play started knocking at the goal of Legon Cities who looked desperate for a goal and making lots of mistakes in the heart of defense.
Yahaya Wadudu in the 77’ on the game gave King Faisal the lead which would have made a difference if they were able to defend it till the end of proceedings.
Legon Cities started to work from behind and played tactically to comeback into the game. 3’ after the opening by King Faisal, Cephas Doku of Legon Cities drew the equalizer for the home side and that goal was enough to keep the branding grand masters from the relegation with 15 points after 14 games.
