In the sport, club's are differentiated by the total points accrued in the season. A point or points? Each is worth fighting for. With 2 games more to go, the quest for places was heightened with 20 different scorers notching home 21 goals from 7 venues.
5 home wins, 1 away win and a goalless draw ended another round of sporting debate. Who stands? Who falls? The quest  still lingers. 

Here is what we observed with the penultimate games settled.

Too Much, Too Little
One key component of WAFA's squad this season has been captain Ibrahim Abubakar. Leading from the rear, the defender has played across the central defence with some starts from the right back position also recorded. Typifying the Academicians season, Ibrahim seems to be on the reverse of a rather good start to the season. Yesterday, as his side lost at Tema, the young defender was exposed. His speed was suspect in the second period with misplaced long balls in the first. He failed to complete any of his 4 passes into the opponents final third in the first 30 minutes before his over involvement in an offence play led to his side conceding the equaliser. He slotted home a penalty but like the entire team, their appetite looks lost.

8 in Obuasi
The past 180 minutes has seen the Miners netting 8 goals at their favorite Len Clay Stadium. For all their technical instability over the period, new gaffer, Zachariasen seems to have found the blend for success. In Shafiu Mumuni and Amos Nkrumah, Obuasi has been a no go area in the last 5 days. Do we get to see that away from home? Predecessor Svetislav's bad away form led to his sack. 

Who Joins Hearts?
It was written! Boldly in the colors of the rainbow, Hearts have qualified. A 3-1 brushing aside of Sharks ensured their 4 point gap at the top is still in tact. With Karela bouncing back with a win and Liberty's upward surge, the second place is all for grabs come the final day.

In a must win clash with Medeama SC, Asante Kotoko's Songne Yacouba proved his worth once more. A 43rd minute cameo saw him getting the leader after 3 minutes before providing the assist for Fatawu's 8th goal of the season. How crucial could his return be?

60 Unbeaten
Karela United once more recorded a win at home. New? Nope! 60 games faced in official games, 58 won with none lost speaks volumes. Blessed with the Taylors, Karela defeated Dreams as they fight to get a qualification spot. 

Since Joseph Esso missed that penalty for Hearts against Liberty Professionals, Christopher Bonney has been handed the task of converting form the spot. In 3 consecutive games, he has shouldered this responsibility. 100‰ scoring rate from 3 spot kicks is enough confidence booster for the former Dwarfs right back
