OFOSU Micky struck in the second half to help King Faisal overcome Kpando Heart of Lions 1-0 in a Glo Premier match at the Baba Yara Stadium on Saturday.
Faisal, whose form has improved in recent outings, played aggressively and won the day on merit. But it was a hugely committed performance as Lions, led in attack by gangling striker Gilbert Fiamenyo, with support from attacking midfielder Bright Nsiah, exploded.
Faisal keeper Iddrisu Ibrahim pulled some brilliant saves from Nsiah’s thunderbolt free kicks to the applause of the few fans in the stadium.
The early exchanges were fierce, with Faisal trying to pluck holes down the right of the Lions defence. However, the defence tightened up, cutting out the supplies and anytime they attacked the Faisal rear was in trouble.
It appeared Faisal were in for a match of their lives but they put their acts together to probe for the leader which arrived in the second half when Micky Ofosu struck the winner.
Both teams played brilliantly, but failed to utilise the numerous chances that came their way. Indeed Dwarfs Michael Insaidoo managed to put the ball into the net, but the goal was disallowed.
Kessben had an opportunity to score in the 80th minute but Hans Kwofie hit the post.
