Published on: 06 December 2021

King Faisal coach Nurudeen Amadu said his side were second best against Asante Kotoko although they won the Kumasi derby on Sunday. 

According to Amadu, the Porcupine Warriors played better but King Faisal did the needful - scoring more goals to claim a 3-2 victory.

All three King Faisal goals was scored by Zubairu Ibrahim while Cameroonian striker George Mfegu netted a brace for the Porcupine Warriors.

“We wanted to give them (Kotoko) a good fight today and we started the match as underdogs but we did the needful even though they played better.

"Being needful means that we stayed back, defended well and played on the counter. We made use of the few chances that we got and that was the plan heading into the match.

"The victory means that we are on course but it is too early to say anything but we believe that if continue working hard, we can get a respectable position on the league table at the end of the season.”

"The victory was King Faisal’s 4th of the campaign after the previous wins against AshGold (1-0), Aduana Stars (3-) and WAFA (1-0). They also recorded a draw with Medeama and a loss to Berekum Chelsea," he added.

King Faisal following victory have replaced Kotoko as league leaders.
