Goals at either side of the half from Kofi Kordzi and Ebenezer Armegah ensured the Royals collected all three points at home.

The host then broke the deadlock ten minutes to half time after striker Kofi Kordzi smashed home, beating goalkeeper Andrews Owusu.
Just before half time, the referee awarded Legon Cities a penalty but the decision was reversed after a chat with his assistant.
Three minutes after the break, Ebenezer Armegah scored a cracking goal to double the lead for the host.
Kordzi was later replaced by Alex Aso, who had a goal ruled out due to an offside.
The win moves Legon Cities up to the 10th position with 37 points, while Accra Lions dropped to the 7th spot with 41 points after playing 28 matches in the campaign.
