King Faisal’s quest to go four opening matches without a defeat in the 2021/22 season was pegged back by struggling Berekum Chelsea on Friday.
The “Insha Allah” Boys survived relegation at the eleventh hour last season but look a different side this term – winning three straight matches.
As a revived side under the tutelage of coach Nurudeen Ahmed, King Faisal stunned West Africa Football Academ 1-0 in week one at the Baba Yara Stadium before posting a shocker at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in the second week where they beat Aduana Stars 3-1.
They returned to the Baba Yara Stadium in week three with a 2-0 victory over AshantiGold but will have their fire quenched by Berekum Chelsea.
Nurudeen Ahmed admits the Golden City Park has always been a difficult terrain for King Faisal.
“Like I told you, it was going to be a very difficult game because they are chasing their first win and when we come here it is always difficult for us.
“Last year we lost about five goals to nil and today losing 1-0 it’s not a bad result because there is improvement as compared to last season.
“We did well but it was not enough to get us a draw or a win so that is football, we go and correct our mistakes and move ahead.” Nurudeen Ahmed said.
King Faisal are still on a good standing despite the defeat, having earned nine points from four games. They will next host beleaguered Medeama in week five at the Baba Yara Stadium.
