Aduana Stars secured their second win of the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League season with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.
Veteran forward Yahaya Mohammed scored the only goal of the game in the first half to hand the Ogya lads a second successive win of the campaign.
After thrashing newly promoted Real Tamale United last weekend, the Dormaa based club named an unchanged team for the match week five(5) encounter.
Legon had the first chance of the game during the opening exchanges but forward Jonah Attuquaye failed to guide his effort on target.
Aduana Stars made them pay for the early misses as experience striker Yahaya Mohammed shot them into the lead in the 27th minute.
The goal takes the former Asnate Kotoko attacker’s tally to two(2) for the season.
Aduana Stars took the slim advantage into the half time break and return with even more determination to hold on to their advantage.
Legon made changes after the break with Asamoah Boateng Afriyie coming on for Hamzah Nassiru while Osman Abdul replaced Nasiru Moro as they pressed high for the equalizer.
However, it was the visitors who looked more dangerous with their occasional counterattacks as they seek to double their lead.
With six minutes remaining, Legon came close to equalising but substitute Asamoah Boateng Afriyie saw his last ditch effort hitting the side net.
That was the closest the home side came to scoring as the clock run out for the end of the match.
The victory means Aduana have picked four points from Accra Sports Stadium in the last two weeks as they also shared the spoils 1-1 with Hearts of Oak.
The 2-time Ghana Premier League champions are now sitting in mid-table with eight points out of a possible 15.
