The first half of the game failed to record any goal.

But just two minutes after the break, Legon Cities broke the deadlock from the spot-kick through Joseph Adjei in the 47th minute.

This was the first time Legon Cities took a lead in the Ghana Premier League.

In their previous games, they always concede first, before they level or end up losing.

The win is a big boost to Legon Cities who were busy in the transfer market, purchasing high profile players including Ghana’s all-time top scorer Asamoah Gyan.

However, it has not yet translated into good results- they have lost four, drawn 3 and won 1.

Meanwhile, the former Sunderland marksman is still nursing an injury, so he had no part to play in the game.

This is Legon Cities longest wait for their first league win (8 league games), since making their debut in the 2007-2008 season.
