Dreams FC secured a vital 5-1 win over Legon Cities at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday, moving themselves out of the relegation zone. The Still Believe showed their intent from the opening whistle, with Gael Aholou opening the scoring just six minutes into the game. Ishamel Dede doubled their advantage on 26 minutes, putting the home side in a commanding position.
Legon Cities fought back and halved the deficit just before halftime through an Ofori McCarthy own goal. However, Dreams FC came out with even more urgency after the break and were rewarded with their third goal, scored by Ali Huzaif on 58 minutes. Ibrahim Abdulai then headed home on 66 minutes to put the game beyond the visitors.
Godfred Atuahene came off the bench to make it 5-1 for the home side, securing the three points and leapfrogging Legon Cities into 12th position on the league standings with 37 points. The Royals are also on 37 points but sit in 13th position.
For the most part, Dreams FC dominated the game, showing great determination and quality in all areas of the pitch. The win is a significant boost for the home side as they look to secure their place in the league for next season.
Both Dreams FC and Legon Cities could be overtaken by Tamale City if they win against Kotoko in the Sunday evening kick-off. Nonetheless, Dreams FC will be buoyed by their impressive performance and will look to build on this momentum in their remaining fixtures.
