Aduana Stars beat West African Academy at the Nana Gyeabuor Park in Dormaa in a top of the table clash.

A goal from Derrick Sasraku in the second half proved to be the winner.

Aduana Stars won the game by 1-0 and run away with maximum points and a 4-point lead at the top of the table.

The head coach of Aduana Stars Yusif Abubakar spoke to the media after the game and revealed his game plan going into this game which eventually worked to perfection.

“It was not an easy game we were expecting that and if you are playing against a team like this who are good in possession you need to do a lot of pressing.

"Also when you win the ball you need to retain so that the transition can continue. That is what we did today.”

Coach Abubakar also attributed his side’s performance to commitment and motivation which came from the top hierarchy at the club.

“The performance is all about commitment and we also had support from the management and owner of the club. The player’s reputation is also at stake. If they win the league after putting up such performances it will be a plus for them. That is what I think motivated them.”

Aduana Stars lie on top of the league with 51 points with WAFA following suit with 47 points.

Aduana will finish the league by facing relegation bound Bolga All Stars away, in form Elmina Sharks at home and will hope to be crowned champions at the den of former Champions AshantiGold.
