Real Tamale United must shape up in performance if they want to retain their premier league status and that is the wish of captain, Ronald Frimpong.
RTU returned to the top flight after 13 years in Division One but have struggled to climb up the league log following some patchy outputs lately.
The “Pride of the North” suffered a 2-1 loss on match day 18 against Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium on Monday to remain in 13th with 20 points – one point above above relegation zone.
Ronald Frimpong admits it will be difficult to win points in the subsequent games but are bent on holding their guards.
“Very very difficult you know, Ghana Premier League,regardless of home or away, you have to go in for all the points,” Ronald Frimpong told StarTimes.
“You can’t afford to drop the points because the points they are just closer. “You drop you are down, you win, you are up there.
“So second round, we need to just put on much effort to go up because it’s not an easy task especially second round. “Every team is gearing up and we are having one or two suspension and injuries.
“We are going everybody comes on board and just ginger the team to higher heights.” Ronald Frimpong added.
Their week 19 fixture will be a home game against Legon Cities FC on Saturday, March 5 at the Aliu Mahama Stadium.
