I bet even if Gamba All Blacks were relegated, they would be remembered for an astonishing set of back-to-back wins against Kotoko and one against Hearts.
Like Dick Francis' horse-racing based books, the 2009/10 season is set for a final lap of intense proportions. Here are the scores.
|Sekondi||Hasaacas 2 :||2 Heart of Lions|
|Obuasi||AshGold 2 :||0 Arsenals|
|Kumasi||Faisal 2 :||0 Kessben FC|
|Wa||All Stars 1 :||2 RTU|
|Bechem||Chelsea 0 :||1 Kotoko|
|Accra||St. Mirren 1 :||2 Tema Youth|
|Dansoman||Liberty 2 :||1 Eleven Wise|
|Swedru||All Blacks 3 :||1 Hearts of Oak|
Stephen Manu scored for Kotoko to close the gap with Hearts - it stands such that Kotoko need four points to overhaul the Phobian lead.
Last week, King Faisal won with nine-men. And as if to upstage themselves, the Kumasi side won 2-0. This time, with eight men. Kessben's board and management should be livid at such a loss.
Heart of Lions are now fourth with Kotoko on 2nd and Faisal one place behind. Lions lead 2-0 at half-time.
That's what the top looks like. Now, the bottom.
Real Tamale United's win allayed Abdul Razak's worry over match fixing.
As for Mirren, they did not disappoint as before the game I had said they would lose, true to form. Relegation is now signed, sealed and delivered. Poor Talal Fattal. He can always by another team next season.
