King Faisal, Elmina Sharks And Others Live On life Support, Legon Cities Almost Through

Last days are dangerous in almost every moment or occasion. Assurances that are not backed by actions will end in futility. This perfectly narrates the prevailing circumstances of Alhaji Gruzah’s King Faisal

“King Faisal will surely remain in the Ghana Premier League at the end of the season," Alhaji Abdul Karim Gruzah once told Kumasi based Angel FM.

“King Faisal will escape relegation this season and we want to make sure we don’t drop to the relegation zone”. Goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim, on loan from Asante Kotoko once assured. 

Beyond these inspirational pronouncements, the future remains bleak for the Kumasi-based side. 

With the hope to beat Asante Kotoko in Obuasi, King Faisal took the lead in the first half, only to allow host Asante Kotoko snatch equalizer few minutes to closure. 

King Faisal left Obuasi with a point, with disappointment written on the forehead of the players. They could have salvaged the sinking ship, after that marvelous and impressive performance with a win. 

With 37 points, King Faisal will have to dwell on other results tomorrow to get a clear direction as to staying or having to battle next week and two for safety. 

Alhaji Abdul Karim Gruzah is keeping a close watch on Legon Cities (38 points) Bechem United (38 points)Ebusua Dwarfs ( 37 points), Berekum Chelsea ( 37 points), Eleven Wonders ( 36 points), Elmina Sharks (35 points) and Liberty Professionals (35 points). 

These teams are, per the dynamics of points accumulation could go on relegation with slightest of a slip or stalemate. 

Interestingly, most of these teams are engaged in a home game this weekend, or are playing matches that they can easily pick all points, with hard work. Liberty Professionals at home look favorite for a win over Karela United. Eleven Wonders could pick three points in the capital against Accra Great Olympics. Elmina Sharks are motivated to beat Medeama in Tarkwa. 

If these clubs emerge winners in their respective games, the mood in King Faisal will be a state of aggravated despair. 

The bustling for survival is not ending anytime soon, but the fate of some clubs hinges on last day events. 

Legon Cities Versus Bechem United 

The two teams could say goodbye to the Ghana Premier League if they lose gear in remaining matches. They squared off at the Accra Sports Stadium with the game ending a goal apiece. 

Legon Cities and Bechem United move to 39 points. 

King Faisal are 2 points adrift of these clubs. 

What this means for the beleaguered clubs is that, they continue to live on life support.
