Ghana Premier League season "sweet and sour" for Bono teams - Brong Ahafo RFA Chairman

Published on: 16 May 2023

Bono, Bono East, and Ahafo-based teams in the premier league are experiencing a mix of success and struggles this season, according to Raphael Gyambrah, the Chairman of the Brong Ahafo Regional Football Association.

In an interview with Citi Sports, Gyambrah described the performance of the teams as "sweet and sour," acknowledging the competitive nature of the title race and the intensity of the relegation battle.

Heading into match week 31, Aduana FC and Bechem United find themselves in close proximity, with only four points separating them.

Paa Kwesi Fabin's Aduana FC currently sits at the top of the league table, while Kasim Ocansey Mingle's Bechem United occupies the third position.

On the other hand, Nsoatreman FC, a team from the region, is currently languishing in the relegation zone after suffering a defeat against Legon Cities at the El Wak Sports Stadium.

Gyambrah expressed his concern about Nsoatreman's performance, particularly their struggles away from home. He emphasized the importance of securing home victories in their remaining four matches to improve their chances of survival.

“I would want to describe it as a sweet-and-sour situation, in the sense that, you realize that when you look at the summit of the league, you have clubs in that region [Aduana, Bechem, Berekum Chelsea] competing for the title," he told Citi FM.

“When you come to the relegation you also have clubs in that zone struggling as well.

“However, I am confident that, at least the Brong Ahafo clubs will survive.

“Nsoatreman have not fared too well this season, especially on the away end, if they can pick up some home wins in the last four, I think it will be good.

“The fight for relegation is a very difficult one, very difficult to predict at this time of the league.

“Week in, week out, you realized the results coming in from centers, you cannot be too sure, until the last day of the season.

“I just hope there will be a level playing field at all the centers in this crucial period.”
