Legon Cities became the first team to hold Ashanti Gold SC to a draw in the ongoing Ghana Premier League as they played out a scoreless stalemate.

The re-christened club went in search of their first win of the 2019-2020 season against the Obuasi-based outfit, who were on a three-game winning run.

Ashgold did not hide their intentions of grabbing all three points at stake as they made incursions of finding the back of the net in front of a highly charged crowd backing the home side.

A number of stoppages due to injuries punctuated the flow of the game as Legon Cities weathered the storm getting to the tail end of the first half.

A double substitution by coach Goran Barjaktarevic turned the tables in the favor of the Royals as they took control of the game with captain Jeffery Degorl, the tormentor-in-chief dictating play.

All the good intentions of the ‘branding experts’ yielded little positive results with one of such efforts seeing the ball hit the hands of an Ashgold defender but was waved off by the referee.

Four minutes of additional time was not enough for the deadlock to be broken as the Miners maintained their unbeaten run and grabbed their fourth straight clean sheet of the campaign.

Ghanaian artiste Kwesi Arthur thrilled the fans at half time.
