The fight for who stays in the 2017 Ghana Premier League [GPL] got illuminated yesterday, July 09 as Great Olympics and Elmina Sharks won their week 21 matches respectively.
Elmina Sharks washed aside relegation goner – Bolga All Stars by 3-1 at the Nduom Sports Complex in Elmina whiles the Wonder club [Great Olympics] also beat Wa All Stars [defending league champions] 2-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The wins for Great Olympics and Elmina Sharks did not change their positions [15th & 14th] on the league ladder, however, it gave them some glimmer of hope having close up the gap between them and the tenth [10th] placed team – Liberty Professionals to two [Elmina Sharks] and four [Great Olympics] points.
A second look at the league table reveals that AshantiGold SC [25 points], Wa All Stars [25 points], Tema Youth [25 points], and Liberty Professionals [26 points] may be out of the relegation zone at the moment, but one cannot conclude that they are completely out of the relegation basket as a slip on the road could drown them into the relegation zone.
The chase for who becomes the ultimate winner of the 2017 Ghana Premier League is getting hotter, but www.sports24ghana.com can boldly say that the battle for survival rather looks more interesting than what’s happening atop the GPL table.
