Captain Abdul Ganiyu had no complaints about the Porcupines firepower in front of goal after the side got back on winning ways in the Premier League with a 2:1 victory over Legon Cities on Sunday.
Frank Etuoga shot us into the lead in the 29th minute, picking a stray clearance inside the box to slot it home after a beautiful body-swerving of the Cities goalkeeper.
That marked our new Cameroonian import’s second goal in as many games after his opener in our 1-1 draw with Real Tamale United last week.
But the goal was short-lived as it was cancelled by Joseph Adjei’s close-range header in the 35th minute.
After a smooth take off that saw us win four games on the trot, our fortunes have been different in the last three games, drawing twice and losing once.
And so on Sunday, the Porcupines needed to change the tide, playing at the familiar Dawu Park and despite having a tough time dealing with the poor nature of the pitch.
But they persevered and fought, withering the opponent’s challenge.
Etuoga restored our lead in the 78th minute, latching onto Stephen Amakona’s pass into the box to connect a low first-time strike into the net.
Ganiyu was not pleased that the Porcupines could not keep a clean sheet but was happy with the result and what it meant.
“It is wonderful”, he said to reporters at the post-match press conference in response to how it felt for the team to get back on winning ways. “It is one of those (good) days”.
After last week’s home draw to Real Tamale United, Coach Prosper Narteh lamented over his side’s profligacy in front of goals, and Ganiyu felt today that the trend was different.
“Football is all about taking your chances and today we took ours. Match after match we will try to take our chances and try to win.”
