Having held Asante Kotoko to a 1-1 draw on Thursday, a tireless looking Ashanti Gold dispatched Tema Youth win ease after sending two pass the visiting side.
For a team that looked lethargic and poor in defence of their league trophy, the managing staff under the leadership of C.K Akunnor needs a tap on the shoulder for their careful climb up the league log.
Two goals in either half of the game from Hans Kwofie and Shafiu Mumuni ensured Tema Youth returned to their home city with their tails between their legs. Tema Youth who are not safe from relegation grips are 14th on the league table going into the last games of the season.
Tema Youth introduced Michael Kporvi in the 46th minute for Stephen Asare in desperation to turn their fortunes around but that change did little to Tema Youth’s fate. Ashanti Gold on their part introduced Daniel Gozar for Shafiu Mumuni in the second department as they looked to get fresher legs into the game. Aaron Amoah equally had the chance to strengthen his side when he came on for Amos Addai late in the 77th minute.
Ashanti Gold will seek complete survival in the league when they visit resurgent Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium in the next league game.
