Former Ghana Premier League topscorer Augustine Okrah was in attendance at the Fosu Gyeabour Park in Bechem on Wednesday, when his former club Bechem United shared the spoils 1-1 with 10-man Sekondi Hasaacas in matchday 14 of the Ghana Premier League.
An early goal from the spot by Abednego Tetteh handed the hosts a perfect start but with Hasaaacas’ Kingsley Adjei receiving a red card in the second-half, the visitors rallied from behind to snatched a point through Eric Adu Poku, leaving Bechem with just a point in their last three games.
And Okrah, who is in Ghana on holidays following the break in Sudan Premier League and Al Merreikh’s elimination from the Caf Confederation Cup, believes his former team-mates must improve to survive in the log.
“Bechem United played very well in the first-half and could’ve gone up at least three goals. They had several decent chances that should’ve been buried to kill the game but surprisingly they were not utilized,” Okrah told Goal.
“The missed chances hunted the team in the second-half and even with the numerical advantage after the red card, Hasaacas realised they can pick a point and achieved it. I wasn’t impressed with Bechem and I believe they should improve in subsequent matches.
“With such performance, it only leaves the club in relegation battle and that does not befits Bechem. They are now in the relegation zone and must start picking up important points even away from home to survive. I don’t want to see my beloved club going down so I will talk to the club’s top hierarchies too before I leave,” he added.
Okrah became the first Bechem player to win Ghana Premier League goal king in 2014 after netting 16 goals.
