Karela United 2-1 AshantiGold: Kelvin Andoh’s brace deepens Miners’ woes in GPL


The Miners failed to recover from their recent poor run of results in the Premier League as they further drop down on the log

Karela United defeated Ashanti Gold 2-1 on matchday nineteen of Ghana Premier League at the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park in Ainyinase on Sunday.

After surprisingly losing at home to Eleven Wonders last weekend, Ashanti Gold went into this game with the hope of snatching at least a point but despite their good start, they ended up losing.

Eric Esso sent Ashanti Gold ahead by the 20th minute through a well taken effort and Frank Akoto nearly added another goal but his header was blocked.

Karela pilled pressure on the visitors and they eventually drew even by the 40th minute mark after a defensive mixup by Ashanti Gold.

Andoh made it 2-1 after the break with a calmly taken shot to send the home fans into wild jubilations.

Although, Ashanti Gold laboured to find the equaliser, they could not find a breach in the hosts’ defence.

Karela have moved up to seventh on the log with 27 points while Ashanti Gold have dropped to 13th position with 22 points.

A win for Eleven Wonders in their game against Berekum Chelsea on Monday will see Ashanti Gold dropping into the relegation zone.
