The Capital based club defeated Bechem United 2-1 on Match Week 4 of the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

First half goals from midfielder Christopher Acheampong and striker Rauf Salifu were enough to give Lions the much needed win with Bechem United striker Augustine Okrah scoring a second half consolation for his side.

Accra Lions started the match on a bright note, creating a number of goal scoring opportunities with their sleek passing and movement.

But it took them twenty-eight minutes before they took the lead through Christopher Acheampong.

Five minutes later, Lions were awarded a penalty and Rauf Salifu made no mistake as he dispatched expertly from the spot to double his side’s lead.

Bechem United eventually found their way back into the game  but Lions held on to take their 2-0 lead into the half time break.

After the break, The Hunters continued to pile pressure on their host as they seek to crawl back from the brink of a second of the season.

Their persistent pressure yielded result when Augustine Okrah reached at the end of a teasing cross to head home for the visitors just 15 minutes into the second half.

They continued in search of an equalizer which proved elusive to come by as Accra Lions went on to seal the victory.
