Yahaya Mohammed’s two second half goals secured maximum points for Accra Lions as they came from behind to beat Nsoatreman FC 2-1 at the WAFA Park in Sogakope.

Nsoatreman FC took an early lead when Kwabena Adu Meider opened the scoring after just a minute.

He latched onto a pass from Abdul Manaf Umar just 10 seconds into the match.

Adu Meider’s goal unsettled the host as Nsoatreman FC went into the break with a 1-0 lead. Back from recess, Accra Lions improved immensely and took the game to the visitors searching for the equalizer.

Yahaya Mohammed snatched the equalizer with a towering header from Dominic Nsobila’s cross to beat Daniel Afadwu in the 74th minute – much to the home fans’ relief.

The goal gave Accra Lions the impetus to probe for more and their efforts paid off in the 81st minute through Yahaya Mohammed.

The former Tamale City forward dribbled two players in the box before smashing home the winning goal for the Lions after receiving an intelligent pass from substitute Fredrick Asante. Yahaya kept his composure and eye on the ball before firing the winner home with his left foot.

The win takes Accra Lions to the 9th spot with 19 points as Nsoatreman FC drops to the 5th position with 24 points – three points behind leaders Aduana FC.

Nsoatremnan FC will host Aduana FC in their next game while Accra Lions travel to Dawu to face Dreams FC at the Theatre of Dreams.
