For King Faisal, Razak Toufiq was the only new face in the starting line up as he came in to replace Godfred Appiah Danso at left back.

Back from the recess, the home side did not take the feet off the accelerator as they kept pilling pressure in search of the third goal.

Opoku Agyemang nearly got a hat trick on his debut but his goal in the 63rd minute was ruled out for a foul on goalkeeper Yusiu.

Former Bechem United winger, Yaw Annor scored his first goal in the colours of AshantiGold SC seven minutes from time to increase the tally for the home side.
