A late second half strike from right-back Michael Nij Laryea ensured the Scientific Soccer Lads secure passage into the Round of 64 of Ghana’s biggest Cup competition.

The Dansoman based side came into the game on the back of a slow start in the Division One League.

Head Coach Stephen Botchway made nine(9) changes to the side that drew goalless with Akatsi All Stars last weekend with only goalkeeper Lawrence Osei and center back Sherrif Mohammed keeping their place.

Despite the numerous changes, Liberty Professionals started the game the brightest, taking the match to Uncle-T for most of the first half.

Youngsters Philip Tetteh and Addai Cheremeh all went close for the home side but did not make the chances count as both teams went into the half time break goalless.

Uncle-T United started the second half on a stronger footing prompting Liberty Professionals to do a number of substitutions.

Midfielders John Alosode and Kwadwo Boamah were brought on replace Mubashar Issah and Godfred Atuahene respectively and the changes resulted to Liberty regaining their dominance yet again.

But with the game seemingly heading to penalty shootout, right back Michael Nii Laryea broke the deadlock with a well hit low strike following a swift counter attacking move.

Left back Derrick Attah intercepted an Uncle-T attack and switched the ball to the far right for the finish.

The goal proved to be the match winner with Liberty Professionals progressing to the Round of 64 of the MTN FA Cup.

Liberty Professionals and Uncle-T United will face each other again this weekend in the Division One League Match-week three(3) fixture.
