AshantiGold finally moved from bottom place on Sunday after securing a 1-0 victory over champions Wa All Stars at the Len Clay Stadium.
It was coach CK Akonnor’s first win in three league games since taking up the job on a short-term basis.
Shafiu Mumuni scored the matchday 15 game’s only goal with a thumping header off a Hans Kwoffie cross in the 31st minute.
The Miners got the opportunity to double the advantage via the spot after Prince Owusu was hacked down in the 18-yard box but Osei Baffour missed his kick.
The win will serve as a massive boost for the former Ghanaian champions’ battle for survival in the second round of the 2016/17 season which starts in a fortnight.
AshGold, now 15th on the league table with 12 points, have secured a number of loan signings to help their push to beat the drop.
