Aduana FC head coach, Paa Kwesi Fabin has given up on the chase for the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League title following their 1-0 loss at home to Dreams FC on Saturday.
The defeat at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa in the match week 32 game has slashed the Fire boys’ title chances with just two match days to the end if the season.
Dreams FC, who were striving to secure their safety, put up a resilient fight to ensure a goalless first half. Their game plan proved even more effective in the second half when Ali Huzaif broke the deadlock with a brilliant header in the 60th minute, beating Joseph Addo in Aduana's goal.
Huzaif's lone goal proved to be the decisive factor, securing all three points for the visitors.
Fabin openly admitted that the league trophy had slipped away from their grasp. Speaking to StarTimes, he stated, "No, of course, we are almost out. We are out. It's an obligation to play the next two matches, so we will play and see what happens."
Currently, Aduana sits in second place on the league standings, trailing leaders Medeama by four points. However, if Bechem United defeats RTU in Tamale, Aduana could slip down to the third position.
Aduana's next match will see them on the road against relegation-threatened Nsoatreman, as they continue to fulfill their remaining fixtures.
