Lower-tier outfit, Accra Lions FC have been promoted to Ghana Premier League after easing past Danbort FC on Sunday.
It is the first time Accra Lions are earning promotion to the top tier after an impressive campaign which saw them go neck-to-neck with Tema Youth in Zone III.
Midfielder Dominic Nsobila’s brace was sandwiched by Oliver Amedor’s strike as Lions tamed Danbort FC.
The Accra-based club made a short trip to Nungua to beat Danfort FC 3-1 and sealed their passage to the Ghana Premier League.
After a slow start, midfielder Dominic Nsobila broke the deadlock on 29 minutes to put Accra Lions in the lead before half time.
Accra Lions returned from the break more hungrier and just four minutes after the start of the second half, winger Oliver Amedor doubled the lead.
Nsobila added his second of the day with five minutes left and put the game beyond the hosts.
Accra Lions hence are promoted to the Ghana Premier League alongside Bibiani Gold Stars from Zone II.
On the other hand, the climax of the Ghana Premier League this weekend has seen the likes of Inter Allies FC, Ebusua Dwarfs, and Inter Allies FC relegated to the Division One League.
