Leaders Ashgold beat Chelsea to maintain perfect start

Obuasi Ashantigold are the top dogs in the 3-match old First Capital Plus Ghana  Premier League new season after posting a 1-0 victory over also former champions, Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.

Ashgold bagged all three points at the Len Clay Stadium to maintain their perfect start to the new campaign, seizing top spot on the back of nine points from the first available nine thus far.

The Miners who are chasing a first domestic championship since completing a hat-trick of consecutive top flight titles in the first three seasons of the current professional era of the Ghana Premier League from 1994 to 1996, began the season last Sunday with a 2-0 home win over returnees, Accra Great Olympics.

Ashgold followed up by nicking all three points in their midweek match day 2 tie at newly promoted WAFA to jump atop the league standings to keep the only 100% record in the First Capital Plus Ghana Premier League after the opening two games.

And the former champions consolidated their position on Sunday afternoon with another compact performance to pip Chelsea who were high on confidence after beating Hearts of Oak 4-2 in midweek.

Ashgold next travel away to Tarkwa to face Medeama in a stern test of their credentials whilst Chelsea will be hoping for a revival at home to new boys, WAFA who secured their first Premier League points with a 2-1 victory over Great Olympics today.
