Medeama's hopes of playing themselves out of the relegation zone in the Premier League took another blow after a 1-0 loss to AshantiGold on Sunday.

The defeat at the Len Clay Stadium, a second consecutive by the Mauves leaves them third from bottom, though they still have two games in hand on the other relegation candidates.

Awudu Nafiu scored the decisive goal that secured the Miners all three points in the outstanding match-day-25 fixture.

And the victory ends AshantiGold's winless run of three games in the competition which has three more matches to go.
