Frank Boateng ( 7/10)-
The Goalkeeper was lively throughout the game. He failed to organize the defense for the visitors first goal. Made some decent saves in the second half.
Kwadwo Amoako ( 7/10)
The lateral defender was really on course today. His recovery rate was loudable. He made few attacking crosses but the attack couldn’t yearn any results. His crosses were very poor.
Eric Donkor ( 7/ 10)-
Donkor played very well for his side today. Combined beautifully with Silver on the left to cause a lot of problems. Broke the deadlock of the game from an impossible angle.
Eric Osei Agyemang ( 5/10) –
The Rod-Hot defender was virtually not fit today. Was sluggish and committed few blunders. Not surprised he was withdrawn for young Musah Mohammed.
Yusif Mubarik (6/10) –
Very good game by the defender. Did most of the job to at the back due to the fitness issue of Osei Agyemang. Also attacked few balls despite being quite a poor passer. His organization at the back still questionable.
James Akaminko ( 7/10) – He did almost all the dirty works for his side. He had the most interception today. In terms of attack, he was good on both attack and defensive. Assisted Donkor for his first goal.
Latif Anabila ( 7/10)
His passes and dribblings was incredible. Sometimes dropped back to help the defense too. Was one of the brightest spot in the Ashantigold team. Got tired in the second half.
Appiah McCarthy ( 7/10) – The deep line playmaker was really on course today. Unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet. He was first denied by the crossbar and then a great save by Laaroubi. Linked up very well with the defense and the attack. Got almost all his passes accurately.
Amos Addai ( 9/10) –
Arguably the best player on the pitch today. The only way he losses the ball was to foul him. He had the most dribbles and highest chances created. Scored the winner for his side after bottling a two goal lead.
Marco Silver ( 7/10)
The Brazallian was explosive in the first half, his combination with Eric Donkor on the left side of the attack was great for the team. Delivered some dangerous crosses in the first half. Faded in the second half.
Shafiu Mumuni ( 7/10) –
The Striker couldn’t replicate half his performance in their previous game. Was quite sluggish in the first half until he got the second for his side. Was always outnumbered by the visitors defense.
Amos Nkrumah (5/10) – Was introduced to come and add a fresh energy as the team were chasing for the winner. Made some dangerous runs on the right side. Missed a free header to make 4-2 for the Miners.
Emmanuel Osei Baffour (4/10) – The Skimmer came late in the game and couldn’t make any impact in the game.
Musah Mohammed (5/10) –
Came in for the injured Osei Agyemang to bring more stability at the back . Didn’t put any foot wrong in the game.
