Acheampong concedes title to Kotoko
AshantiGold coach, Yaw Acheampong has given up on the title and will focus on finishing the season well.
The Miners after a great run of form, seven consecutive wins in the second round have now draw their last three games on the bounce.
With a 14-point gap separating them from leaders, Asante Kotoko, who need just one win from their remaining five games to seal a 22nd title, Acheampong is looking at mounting a good challenge next season.
“We have to congratulate them [Kotoko] for what they have done this season. I think they have won the title and I don’t see how they will lose all their remaining games,” said Acheampong, whose side drew 1-1 at home to Medeama on Sunday.
“We didn’t have a good first round but we have turned things around this second round. We are in second and still in the FA Cup. But we have to prepare well for next season and challenge.”
AshantiGold now face a difficult season run-in with their next game away to Liberty Professionals as they are just one point ahead of Hearts of Oak, who are lying third on the Glo Premier League standings.
