Medeama defender Samuel Appiah happy to score his first Premier League goal

Published on: 28 April 2019

Samuel Appiah was pleased to get on the scoresheet as his first Ghana Premier League goal handed Medeama a precious 1-0 win over Aduana Stars on Sunday. 

The Mauve and Yellows had the last laugh after recording the vital win with 10-me at the Tarkwa NA Aboso park.

The defender’s first Premier League goal proved invaluable for Medeama as it was enough to send them to second on the table, just a point behind leaders Asante Kotoko.

Samuel Boadu has to dig deep to bag the maximum points after his side were reduced to 10-men following a red card to centre-back Ali Ouattara.

And Appiah, who notched home the match winner with just four minutes left on the clock, was left excited.

“Of course, I am happy to score and to score such an important goal makes it special,” he said at the post match conference.

“This will serve as a major boost to me in the remaining matches. Today, we celebrate and tomorrow, we are back at training.

“This is was a difficult game and both teams gave their all. It became more difficult after we were reduced to 10-men.

“Great win, three points and now on to the next one against Berekum Chelsea [Which] is a very tough game.

Medeama travel to the Golden City park to battle Berekum Chelsea in an outstanding league fixture on Wednesday before heading to Nkoranza to face Techiman Eleven Wonders.
