Accra Lions proved their title credentials with a convincing 3-0 victory over Accra Great Olympics in an Accra derby at the Accra sports stadium on Thursday afternoon.

Having drawn 1-1 with Aduana Stars in Dorma over the weekend, Accra Lions impressively bounced back to their winning ways to beat Great Olympics at home.

After a cagey first 20minutes, the homeside broke the deadlock through Samari Salifu who struck home with a beautiful finish in the 27th minute.
Jacob Mensah doubled the lead for Accra Lions in the 42nd minute to make sure they go into the break with a 2-0 lead.

Just Seven minutes into the second half, Jacob Mensah added insult to injury as he took his tally for the day to 2 with a beautiful effort.
Accra Lions were later reduced to 10men asĀ  Jacob Amu Mensah was sent off in the 75th minute.

It was an incredible finish and, after holding out to win the game, Accra Lions now move to 3rd on the table, two points behind leaders Aduana Stars, while Ibrahim Tanko’s team know that a win at the Baba Yara Sports stadium next week against Champions Asante Kotoko will put them firmly in the title race.
