Dreams FC remain without a win in their last two games after playing a 1-1 drawn game with Ebusua Dwarfs in the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Still Believe skipper Leonard Owusu once again highlighted his fine season with a sublime finish in the 10th minute.
The playmaker’s silky finish was a testament of an opening half dominated by the Dawu-based side.
But, Bashir Hayford’s men piled pressure in the dying embers of the first-half and levelled through Michael Asamoah who forced a header home with keeper Isaac Amoako already beaten.
Juha Pasoja, Dreams’ Finnish coach, had his game plan working to perfection in the opening half hour but Hayford proved he’s a better game reader as his charges continuously decided how their opposition should defend and attack.
Patrick Arthur and Issah Yakubu combined in the middle with the latter tailoring an artful cross for Owusu. The skipper was composed and collected as he rounded up Danso Mensah before rifling his effort home.
In the postmatch interview, the former AshantiGold trainer didn’t mince words as he stated his disappointment with the results but admitted he is fine with how his side played.
The Dwarfs goal arrived via a corner which was powered home by former Medeama man Asamoah.
That feeling of disappointment though could be placed at the doorstep of striker Bright Luqman who missed two glorious chances in either halves.
The former Hearts of Oak forward was played through twice and with enough space to finish missed the target.
The second half variation of Hayford left Dreams with little space to operate in. This resulted in the introduction of the talented pint-sized Benjamin Ayim for scorer Owusu.
Ayim announced his presence by bending a free kick cleverly just wide and even hit the post with a skewed left footer with the Dwarfs’ guards lowered.
But, Isaac Amoako was lucky to have escaped the fate of Liverpool keeper Karius with a horrendous howler from a back pass.
On-loan Karela United player Vincent Bekoe was named man of the match.
With two points from their last two games Dwarfs are still trapped in the drop zone with 14 points from 15 games while Dreams sit 3rd pending outcome of Sunday’s games.
