Premier league side King Faisal football club have recorded their first win in 18 premier league matches after beating visitors Inter Allies 1-0 at the Ohene Ameyaw Park in Tachiman in match day 4 of the ongoing 2020/2021 premier league season.
Samuel Kusi struck in the second half of the game to earn his side a 1-0 home win over Inter Allies on Friday to ensure that the Kumasi based side record their first premier league match win in 6 years.
The last time King Faisal won a premier league match was in the 2013/2014 Premier league season when they beat Kpando Heart of Lions away from home by 1-0. The was match day 29 fixture of the season, played on 1st June, 2016 when Faruk Mohammed converted a penalty for the away side. King Faisal was relegated to the lower division at the end of the season after drawing their last game 1-1 with Berekum Chelsea to finish the season with 38 points in 30 matches to finish 14th in a then 16-team league.
King Faisal only returned to the elite division in the 2019/2020 league season which was eventually cancelled after 15 matches played due to the novel covid-19 outbreak. The “Babies” played 14 matches in the 2019/2020 season, drew 6 and lost 8. In the ongoing 2020/2021 season, they have played 3 matches so far, have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 1. King Faisal have therefore played a total of 18 premier league matches without a win since they last won in June 2014 over Heart of Lions – they have played 18 matches, won 1, drawn 8 and lost 9.
The win over Inter Allies is a morale booster for the team as they strive for success in the current league campaign.
