The Miners came close again after ten minutes afterwards but defender Felix Akorlor cleared the ball on the goal line to prevent a goal.

Emmanuel Owusu broke the deadlock on the 29th minute to put AshantiGold in front following an excellent effort by Mark Agyekum to set him up.

Mark Agyekum doubled the lead with a magnificent curling shot after receiving a pass from Abdul Latif Anabila on the stroke of halftime.

The visitors had an opportunity to reduce the deficit in the 49th minute after they were awarded a penalty.

Seth Osei blasted the spot kick over the crossbar.
