Dreams FC were given a serious reality check in week five of the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League by Bechem United.
The “Still Believe” boys suffered a 3-1 loss at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park on Sunday despite making a good start in the game.
Dreams FC shocked the home fans with an opener from Ali Huzaif, five minutes into the first half.
The “Hunters”, who were bent on maintaining their hundred percent home record, fought back after going down to pull level with a few minutes to end the first half. Emmanuel Avornyo drew level to throw the game open moving into the break.
Former Asante Kotoko winger, Augustine Okrah shot Bechem United into a 2-1 lead with 54 minutes played before Obuoba Yaw Dasi made it 3-1 on the 68th minute.
Deputy coach of Dreams FC, Winfred Dormon says the team switched off after their opening goal and allowed Bechem United room to operate.
“I think on the whole, it was a very good game; we started very well, you can see the first 20-25 minutes Dreams FC were the best team.
“And not surprising we scored from a counter break and it was a quality goal. The build up leading up to the goal was very very good.
“And then we switched off, the last seconds towards the first half, we allowed them to come into our box and they equalized.
“So for the second half, we changed some plans, we made some adjustments but we didn’t see it in terms of scoring just we had decent possession.
“But Bechem [United] were stronger, they got the second goal through a transition play, we lost the ball in a key moment especially in the middle of the third and they broke to score.
“We also had some decent chances but again the quality in the final third was not good.
“So over all it was a good game, I think Bechem [United] deserved to win the game.” Winfred Dormon said.
Dreams FC have collected seven points out of 15 in five games played.
A checkered performance saw them fall 3-1 in opening day to Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium before making a strong recovery in a week two victory, beating Elmina Sharks 3-1 at the Nduom Stadium.
The away result boosted their confidence marching into week three – culminating in another 3-1 win over Accra Lions in the capital.
They gave away a three goal lead to draw 3-3 against Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium in week four before a slip in week five to Bechem United.
Their next game is a week six encounter at home to premier league entrants, Bibiani Gold Stars at the Dawu Park in December.
