All Blacks help themselves + more head-to-head stuff

The fight at the bottom of the table is becoming clearer.

Gamba All Blacks won 1-0 to grant themselves a temporary reprieve down there. The game was declared outstanding due to security fears.

The Black Magicians must now win their last match against Tema Youth to stay in the elite division. Eleven Wise are in danger and are just one point above the relegation. They need to win against Kessben on Sunday to stay safe.

Meanwhile, the executive committee of the Ghana Football Association has decided that the head-head rule will apply in relegation battles.

The GFA had decided before the start of the season that the rule will only be used in determining champions but after a meeting on Tuesday, the GFA says it will use the system to determine all sixteen places on the Premier League.
GFA president Kwasi Nyantekyi says the body decided there must be some uniformity in deciding the placings.
Sporting Mirren are already relegated but Liberty Professionals, Eleven Wise, Sekondi Hasaacas, AshantiGold, Real Tamale United are all not safe heading into the final day of competition on Sunday.
Nyantekyi also says the football association will clear all cases involving Tema Youth and Berekum Arsenals that could have a bearing on the standings of the League by tomorrow.
