Both sides looked like settling for a goalless draw when the lucky moment fell to Liberty Professionals who excellent made judicious use of it.

Goalkeeper Dida Alhassani flicked away an AshGold corner, Baffour Kyei pounced on the ball, tailored a diagonal pass to Muntari who wasted no time by sending the ball back to Baffour who nicely slotted the ball into the yawning net at a time George Owu was already out of the sticks.

The win over AshGold is Liberty's second in a row after registering a 2-0 win over Techiman Eleven Wonders on Sunday at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

AshGold until this defeat had been remarkable in the Ghana Premier League without a defeat in five games.
