Ghana Premier League: Nsoatreman FC coach Mumuni Abubakari sees RTU clash as ‘a match of survival’

Published on: 16 May 2023

Nsoatreman FC coach Mumuni Abubakari believes his outfit game against Real Tamale United will determined their status in the Ghana Premier League.

The domestic top-flight will return this weekend after FA Cup semifinals games, with Nsoatreman expected to take on RTU on home turf.

The Premier League debutants are currently in the relegation drop, sitting 16th position with 37 points.

And with four games to end the season, Abubakari is fully aware of the importance of the outcome of their game against RTU at the Nana Koromansah II Park.

"I think next week match is like a match of survival. It's going to be a determinant factor as to whether Nsoatreman will stay in the league or not so we'll go all out and make sure that we grab all the three maximum points," Abubakari told StarTimes.

Faisal earned a hard fought 3-2 win to edge Nsoatreman in the semifinal at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in a keenly contested game.

The Nsoatre-based club shot into the lead through Samuel Ofori, who scored from the spot in the 9th minute but Baba Yahaya restored parity by scoring for Faisal in the 35th minute.

Frimpong Boateng found the back of the net to extend King Faisal's in the 44th minute.

After recess, Kwame Nana Junior levelled for Nsoatreman on 55 minutes but Samuel Adom Antwi restored Faisal's lead in the 64th minute which was enough to earn them a spot in the final.
