Legon Cities FC’s survival hopes were dealt another big blow by West Africa Football Academy at the Sogakope Park on Saturday.
The week 25 fixture of the 2020/21 Ghana premier league season saw the Royals fall 1-0 to the Academy boys, courtesy a Justus Torsutse’s 31st minute goal.
The slim defeat has stagnated Cities in the relegation zone with survival looking a tall order.
Head coach of the side, Bashir Hayford has admitted that, the current position of the club is nothing good to talk about.
“Why am I a worried man,all the games I have played I wanted to get the maximum three points.
“And if you don’t get it, as a coach you must know that one day you will win and one day you will lose, one day you will draw so I’m not a worried man.
“My worry is that where we are lying is my headache and we have to make we come up, that is my worry.
“But in the game and other things I don’t worry so that is why I make sure we lift ourselves from the place.
“I’m saying that we can do better in coming up.
“So if it is 13th, 14th, 15th that is not our place.
“Anybody hearing Legon Cities, you expect us within the second, third, fourth place.
“That’s why I am saying that I’m worried, there but not worried about the result.” Bashir Hayford said.
Legon Cities FC were bent on at least securing a point from the WAFA game to keep the push out of the drop zone.
The defeat means they remain in 15th position with 26 points, one more than Liberty Professionals who could plunge them into 16th if the beat Asante Kotoko on Sunday , May 16th.
It will be disastrous for Legon Cities to play in next season’s Division One League after it metamorphosed into its current name from WA All Stars.
