GPL Week 7: 10 man King Faisal earn a point against Dreams FC


A 10 man King Faisal side shared the spoils with Dreams FC (1-1)  in the 7th week of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season, as they failed to move out of the danger zone.

The hosts took the lead in the 31st minute of the first half through Kwadwo Frimpong but the lead was cancelled in the 69th minute via a Wadudu Yakubu own goal.


The draw puts King Faisal in a difficult position as they could drop to the bottom of the table if Legon Cities edge out Liberty Professionals on Sunday,

How King Faisal drew with Dreams FC

King Faisal coach Andy Sanison made two changes to his side as Emmanuel Morrison and Faridu Laweokpo Joseph started their first game of the season for the club.

The changes did no harm to the stability of his side as they impressed in the first opening minutes of the first half. Sanison’s men made their dominance count as Kwadwo Frimpong put his side ahead few minutes before the break.


After being put through with a beautiful ball in midfield, Kwadwo Frimpong wrestled his way through two Dreams FC defenders before firing an unstoppable shot into the right hand corner of the Dreams FC goal post.

King Faisal were able to hold on to their lead but dropped the level of their performance as Dreams FC took control of the second half.


The visitors got their equalizer mid way through the second half as Wadudu Yakubu  put the ball into his own net from a Dreams FC corner. The equalizer was not the only blow to King Faisal as their goalkeeper Kaisan Yuisu was sent off for a misconduct right after the equalizer.

Enoch Morrison was, thus, sacrificed for Adams Abdul Jabal but King Faisal were unable to get all the three points despite dominating and creating several chances in the last 10 minutes of the game.

King Faisal have now picked up 5 points from seven games and lie in 17th position but could be at the bottom of the pile if Legon Cities are able to secure a victory against Liberty Professionals on Sunday.
