Sierra Leone Premier League leading goal scorer, Abu Komeh, strikes late to helped Bo Rangers FC grabs a vital away point in Freetown as they stunned East End Lions 1-0 at the Trade Center playing field on Friday.
After missing couple of chances, Rangers in-form Komeh slotted home a late winner in 90+3′ minutes to earn the visitors a tough away win over the Killers.
The victory has placed the unbeaten Bo Rangers 7 point clear ahead of second place Mighty Blackpool and 9 point above East End Lions who are occupying the third position on the league table.
Komeh has been masterminding the attack for the Elephants since the start of the season, leading the league’s top scorer chart with 5 goals and he has scored a goal each in his last 3 matches against Lions, Lamboi FC and Kamboi Eagles.
In appreciating his effort for scoring the only goal in the match, Abu Komeh said despite the time, he always believe he will score a goal and make the difference.
“I was expecting to score at least a goal before the match ends. I always believe in myself and that’s my motivation whenever I am in the pitch of play.
“We came into the match well determined, prepared and highly motivated because we know winning here today, will increase our points on the table”, in-form Komeh said.
Alhaji Foray expressed delighted for being able to win his first away match as head coach of Bo Rangers. He described the outcome as a tough match, adding, his boys showed discipline and high intensity to keep up with the threat from the Lions striking force.
“I am really happy for this win. We work very hard and we were determined to return home with the 3 points. Our expectation was to win and we succeeded by properly exhibiting our strategies as we are working towards our mission, which is to defend our title”.
“Our aim is to go finish the first round without losing a match. We want to maintain our unbeaten run while we focus on scoring more goals to keep our position safe”, Foray highlighted.
East End Lions acting coach, Raymond Hunter said they have series of chances but failed to convert any of them. “That’s football. It’s normal, sometime you get the chances but you failed to utilize them. That’s exactly our problem today”.
“We did all we can to score, but from the look of things, it wasn’t our day. We will go back to training and work on our mistakes so that we will come back and win our next matches”, Hunter said.
It was Bo Rangers first away win against East End Lions in Freetown in their recent meetings. Right-back Kemson Fofanah was named Man of the Match.
