Tema Youth’s survival chances in the Glo Premier League looked slimmer after Wednesday’s 2-1 home loss to AshantiGold and Deputy CEO of the Tema-based club, Henry Asante-Twum, has indicated that total seriousness is what the players must show from now until the end of the season.
“ After yesterday’s game, we held a meeting with the playing body and we made it very clear to them that all hands must be on deck in order to save the club from sinking. We have nine games left and five of those will be played at home beginning with Liberty Professionals on Sunday. However, we are still very optimistic that we can survive.”
But in the midst of the gloom, Asante-Twum believes that the team has shown some positives in recent times and that can be very vital as the run-in approaches.
“ We believed that errors we committed in the 3-0 victory over Amidaus were going to be corrected but that could not happen against AshantiGold. We gave away two goals on the counter-attack and [AshantiGold goalkeeper] Fatau Dauda was in fine form but despite these setbacks, I believe that we have picked up some positives from the last three games.”
Tema Youth lie 14th on the Glo Premier League log with 22 points and they must get good results against Liberty Professionals (home), Asante Kotoko (away), RTU (home) and Berekum Chelsea (away) in coming weeks if they will still be a Premier League side next season.
