AshantiGold SC recorded their first victory of the season as they came from behind to beat Elmina Sharks FC 4-2 at the Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.

A brace from debutant Dacosta Boadu and a goal each by David Abagna Sandan and Appiah McCarthy ensured the Miners clinch all three points.

Sharks taste their first defeat of the season after going unbeaten in the previous four matches.

Milovan Cirkovic made four changes to his squad with Robert Dabuo replacing Burkinabe import Mohamed Bailou between the sticks.

Atta Kusi also took the place of Kwadwo Amoako at right back while Dacosta Boadu came in for injured Hans Kwofie.

Abdul Bashiru paved way for Roland Kossivi Amouzou.

Elmina Sharks coach Yaw Acheampong also made two alterations to his squad that beat Aduana Stars 1-0 last week.

Daniel Nii Adjei was handed his first start in Sharks shirt as he replaced suspended Benjamin Arthur.

Joseph Essam manned the goal posts in place of Lord Bawa Martey who is injured.

The visitors opened the scoring of the match as early as the 3rd minute after Benjamin Bernard Boateng benefited from a goalkeeping howler to slot in.

Mark Agyekum nearly equalised for the Miners but his effort went wide two minutes later.

AshantiGold levelled proceedings two minutes after recess from a brilliant free-kick delivered by Appiah McCarthy.

Boadu netted his debut goal in the 62nd minute with a fine header to give the hosts the lead.
