NC Special Competition: Liberty 1-0 Dreams FC – Soccer Lads pip struggling Dreams

A well-worked out goal by Simon Zibo in the first was all what Liberty Professionals needed to record their first win over Dreams FC in a competitive game.

The NC Special Competition match-day six game saw an uninspiring first half as both clubs resulted to lackadaisical play.

The first clear chance of the game fell to Elvis Kyei Baffour in the 20th minute but after a good run through the middle, his effort went wide.

Dreams FC immediately responded with experienced Eric Gawu in the thick of affairs but the Liberty defenders held him at bay.

A neat inter-positional pass blew between Zibo and Frederic Ansah saw the later entering the Dreams penalty box before he beautifully laid a pass in front of the on rushing Zibo who blasted a shot with the inside of his fight foot to the roof of the net for the opener.

The Dreams FC midfield was very porous and manager Juha Pasoja threw on his first card as he replaced Cletus Nombil in the 42nd minute with Samuel Alabi.

Chances were far and few onwards until referee Ali Alhassan blew his whistle for the end of the first half.

After recess, Dreams FC seized the midfield and begun dictating the pace of the game with Samuel Alabi being the orchestrator.

Dreams FC had various chances through Philemon Baffour, Ibrahim Issah and Eric Gawu but all were wasted before Liberty came back into the game.

Dreams FC had some decent chances afterwards but they were not lucky as Fatawu Dida pulled some great saves.

He dived full length to save Razak Cromwell’s freekick which was heading to the far corner of the net in the 70th minute.

Dreams FC manager Juha Pasoja brought on Michael Amoh for Khalid Mumin and later Okudjeto for Philemon Baffour but the Liberty Professionals defenders remained resolute at the back.

Liberty had a great chance to make it two in the 87th minute but Isaac Amoako pulled a great save to deny Junaidu Ibrahim.

Both teams recoiled into their shells as the referee blew his whistle for the end of the game.
