Zubairu Ibrahim’s early strike helped King Faisal to defeat Great Olympics 1-0 at the Techiman.
The Inshallah boys hosted the Dade lads at the Nana Ameyaw Park on Sunday afternoon in matchweek 29 fixture of the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
The club based in Kumasi has been battling relegation since the start of the 2020/2021 football season.
Despite going into the game without their number one goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim and Black Meteors bound Frimpong Boateng as well as the resignation of their head coach within the week, the Kumasi-based produced a majestic display to silence the in form Great Olympics.
A 7th-minute strike from Zubairu Ibrahim was enough to hand King Faisal the all-important victory to boost their survival chances with few matches to end the season.
Great Olympics dominated play from there on but could not equalize and as a result, have been defeated.
The results leave King Faisal out of the relegation although they need to ensure they win their next match to boost chances of surviving the drop.
