Berekum Chelsea beat Liberty to move out of relegation zone

Berekum Chelsea pulled away from the relegation zone temporarily after a 1-0 win over Liberty Professionals at home on Saturday.

Winger Bennett Ofori’s 57th minute header separated the two sides at the Golden City Park and ensured Chelsea remained unbeaten at home in seven matches.

The 2011 champions began well with their midfielders eclipsing Liberty’s combination of Latif Abubakar, Daniel Kordie and Michael Appiah.

Striker Obed Owusu attempted to score after breaking away from his marker close to the box but his delivery went wide.

Mohammed Abdul Basit also made a promising move by cutting in from the left but his connection was off target.

Liberty could have gone ahead against the run of play before the half-time whistle but Joseph Mensah put through by Tamimu Montari shot across the face of goal.

Striker Abubakar Sidi was a few metres away from tapping for the game’s opener.

After the break, Chelsea were still on top and pushing for the first goal and it was until the 12th minute when Ofori broke the duck.

Owusu made a run and controlled a ball on the byline before he dinged in a cross which was powerfully headed in the winger.

Ivorian Bosson Landry missed his header but not Ofori.

Substitute Nana Poku had two chances to increase the scores but the former Ghana Premier League goal king looked clumsy in front of goal.

Chelsea are now 11th on the table but could slip if Sunday’s results do not go his way.
