Budu’s Corner: 4 Things We Learned From Matchday Three Of The Ghanaian Premier League

After a long arduous weekend, we’re now settling back in nicely in the Ghanaian topflight league season, and matchweek three has given us a clearer idea of how the table may look come at the end of the campaign.

There’s a long way to go, but there is already cause for concern for a number of teams up and down of the division, while others are just happy to be back.
 
Here are four things we learned from the third weekend.
 
Chelsea kills another giant
 
After their triumph over Hearts of Oak on the opening day of the season, many took the shine off their victory claiming they just defeated a substandard Hearts of Oak team. If you were one of those with that view, I believe their victory over Asante Kotoko will jolt you out of that belief?
 
Going into the game many gave the Berekum lads little-to-nothing chance to defeat their opponents considering the performances the Porcupine Warriors had churned out in their first two games but Kofi Owusu’s solitary strike was all the visitors needed to silence the home crowd and get Chelsea the much needed points.
 
Joseph Esso finds old form to deliver Hearts their first win of the season.
 
The Phobians still harbour expectations of winning the title come the end of the season, but the 20-time champions found themselves in the usual position of losing their first two league fixtures. Hearts had to withstand an early onslaught as they prevented a Dwarfs side from taking an early lead. Joseph Esso and Kofi Kordzi got their names on the scoresheet to register the Phobians first win in the ongoing season. The win puts the Ghanaian giants back on course as they seek to win the title that has eluded them in a decade.
 
Ashanti Gold SC and Aduana Stars continued where they left off
 
Yahaya Mohammed scored a brace to hand Aduana Stars their third consecutive victory and sends them top of the log as they defeated King Faisal FC in Dormaa. 
 
The veteran striker produced a near-flawless display in front of the home fans. The early signs coming out of Aduana Stars are very positive especially from skipper Yahaya Mohammed.
 
Ashanti Gold SC too has started strongly. They dispatched Techiman Eleven Wonders 2-0 at the Obuasi Len Clay Sports stadium yesterday with goals coming from Emmanuel Owusu and Mark Agyekum. The win was the Miners’ third of the three week league and is second behind leaders Aduana Stars.
 
 The two clubs share the same points but latter have a superior goal difference. An ominous start for the two clubs.
 
What is happening to these clubs?
 
Momentum is everything in football, but Dwarfs, King Faisal, Olympics and Eleven Wonders have the wrong kind of momentum at the worst time of the season, with games coming thick and fast.
 
The above mentioned clubs have lost all three games played so far. The clubs needs to everything within their reach to get back on track or face the drop.
