Aduana Stars breathed live into their relegation survival hopes after trouncing Liberty Professionals 3-0 at the Agyeman-Gyawu Park in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Saddick Abubakar struck five minutes after the break to add to first-half strikes from Emmanuel Akuoko and Richard Addae.
Aduana Stars knew their situation on the Ghanaian top-flight league remains precarious and if they had to keep their survival hopes, needed to convincingly dispatch Liberty.
However their early misses created an atmosphere of worry among home fans at the Agyeman-Gyawu Park but the mere fact of their ability to get forward more often gave enough hope and promise.
Richard Addae unbelievably missed from close range on two occasions within the first 10 minutes of the half.
But the opener dully arrived in the 35th minute. An Aduana incursion inside the Liberty box resulted in a penalty after Stephen Baffour committed a foul inside the box.
Emmanuel Akuoko elected himself and darted a powerful low drive to the bottom right corner of the net for the opening goal.
The Fire Club pressed for more goals and Richard Addae atoned for his earlier howlers when he chipped an effort over Liberty keeper Stephen Kwaku in the 44th minute to cushion the lead for Aduana.
Aduana rounded up the win for the home side when Saddick Abubakar side-footed the ball home in the 50th minute to wrap up victory for his side.
Though Aduana have recorded victory, they still remain in the relegation zone.
